Students of the Vocational School of Transport in Kazanlak have created a unique electric car. It has zero emissions and high energy efficiency. It is designed to participate in an international initiative for young people from around the world who design and compete with the most environmentally friendly cars.

Pupils and students aged 16 -25 take part in the race and the ultimate goal of their prototypes is to cover the longest distance with the least amount of energy. More than 30 students of the Vocational School of Transport and Transport Management have been developing the car for 3 years. It has a futuristic design and its shape resembles a drop of water. The car is called "The Spirit of the Valley" and was one of the big attractions of this year’s Rose Festival in Kazanlak.
