Landmark Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Plovdiv Old Town represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Plovdiv trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Plovdiv (aka Filippopol, aka Trimontium and Filibe)-a wonderful city: charming and incredibly interesting millennial story it turns out to be right underfoot literally. Culture shock: our guide claims that Khan Asparukh and his brothers founded the first Bulgarian Kingdom not only, but also reached the brothers-Bulgarians up to Italy, in particular to Albarobello. Sources, however, only Bulgarian))) Wiki the same reports that protobolgarskomu Khan 7 century Alceku (brother of Khan Asparukh) in the Italian town of Brow de Bulgaria (400 km to the South of Rome, it is not clear-which way) opened a monument, and about 100 names in Italy are the root of the word "Bulgarians"

  • The old tower is done quietly in 2: 00. Visit the ethnographic museum in a house in wood very beautiful. You can finish the ambulation in pedestrian streets in the centre with remains of arenas that can be seen. Only downside to Park: 2lev in the centre but convenient.

  • Beautiful Russian lord style.
  • I visited the complex on the occasion of the wedding of my friends. Fairly neglected atmosphere in the restaurant. A nice garden. Unkind waiters. I definitely recommend the guests of Plovdiv.

  • Recommended for all connoisseurs of good and fine cuisine. Good service and a severe formal setting. The wedding party was there and we were infinitely happy.
