    Are the remains of a Roman structure well kept and made skillfully. The room above the structure could be an eyesore and instead was inserted without detracting from the beauty of the place, in fact, in some ways, improving it and making it more accessible.

    A wonderful example of the classic Roman monumental architecture. It was only partially excavated, but gives you a really good picture of how it looked back in the days of its splendor.

    Conveniently located in the main pedestrian road of the city. Take the tour and enjoy some history. To my fellow photographers , there are plenty of people so avoid main rush hours. There are not that great spots to take THAT picture, but ......

    Not the most amazing architectural structure from the Roman period, but still a nice place to see. In the summer, they hold performances here, which is a nice experience, just make sure it's not too hot when you go, because temperatures and humidity can get pretty high here in the summer!

    One of the main Plovdiv landmarks. It is easily accessible and there is quite a lot of information about it. This is actually only a piece of the entire stadium that's running across the entire main shopping street.
