See a variety of archaeological relics from the Thracian, Roman, and medieval eras at Plovdiv Old Town, one of the oldest European towns. The history of the City of the Seven Hills spans 6,000 years.

Other notable sights include art galleries, churches, and a street of folk arts and crafts.

  • Very nice place to walk around, catch some culture, visit Roman Stadium, the National History Museum and some more attractions 
  • Notwithstanding we visited this town in the winter and it was very cold there, this is a real winner. Maybe unknown (there) than the other cities to go to bed but I would redo it immediately. The people there are also super friendly

  • The old town of Plovdiv is one of the main attractions. Can visit the open houses-museums, see fascinating architecture and just spend nice time:)

  • Hi I would like to share with you our experiences which we did at our wedding in old town Residence in the old town of Plovdiv (Abosede Restaurant first (Petr 1)). I want to complain about the treatment we received by customers and to give an assessment of the restornta and the hotel part of the complex. The services of servitiorite at the time of the wedding was not the most polite. Especially his arrogance and rude nâk″k is the Manager of the restaurant was showing (not the owner). The high prices of the restaurant seem to be based only on the location in the old town, and not the obslužvnae politely. On the hotel, the rooms were well decorated and clean. But their prices it would be outrageous if you don't. After the wedding the next day the owner send the maid to check the rooms before we and our guests are packed if I broke something. For the transfer of the keys had no goddamn formal politeness. There was no nik″kvo coverage of the claims of the restaurant for more than others. If we could turn back time, and never to think about celebrating whatever it is out there. So our estimate of the location for the wedding party there is negative. Mobility and accessibility are another big flaw in the old city, where the forbidden entry. The disadvantages associated with it, that every entry should explain to the guards, where are you going, taxis do not want to be picked up in kaldar″ma in the old town or if you come with your own car feeling that will fall apart in a bad way. The romance of the old city can turn into a nightmare for the movement.
