Varna, Bulgaria Shops | What to Buy

Recommended Purchases: Bulgaria has long been the source for one of the most important ingredients in perfume, rose oil, the highly prized essence of local roses that are harvested in the Spring and distilled to its essense for export. Bulgaria produces more than two-thirds of the world's rose oil. However, the real stuff is very expensive, so you might want to purchase a less refined liquid like Rose Oil Essense. Gyuvech is a stew made in a clay pot and also the name of the squat pot it is made in. Some are lovely and if you have a way to pack it, this might be a bring home a genuine Bulgarian item. Hand-made jewelry is popular and not as expensive as in wealthier countries. Fabrics, linens and clothing are also inexpensive, but you are better off getting away from the tourist areas to find the best quality at the lowest prices.
