(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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. Visit one of many ruins preserved from antiquity, such as the Roman theater, odeon, stadium, and the archaeological complex Eirene. Bulgarian master builders erected the National Revival town of Plovdiv--or the Old Town--in the 19th century. Walk down the steep cobbled lanes alongside houses with large bay windows and slender columns, latticed eaves, oak gates, green yards, and marble fountains. Other notable sights include art galleries, churches, and a street of folk arts and crafts.

  • It was refreshing to spend a couple of days at this quaint town (perhaps in spring and summer is even better), has a small historic center where you can admire and discover the typical architectures that have taken place in the various historical periods ... from the Roman period to the Bulgarian Renaissance. Maybe it would require better maintenance and care of porphyry paving of streets in the old town and some archaeological site (see Fortress). In any case worth a visit ... ...

  • A stroll through the narrow cobbled streets in the old town of Plovdiv in at least a century travels back there are nice small shops with souvenirs from the old objects there are beautiful mansions characteristic of the local architecture with influences from the architecture of Western Northern Greece in plaisia of exchange of cultural elements of the two neighbouring countries in General is a beautiful environment where often happening culturally you Often the roads flooded by street musicians of traditional instruments

  • 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.
