Ruin Historic Site
Imagine the actors of the Roman era uttering verses from ancient tragedies at Plovdiv Roman Theatre. Built in the beginning of the second century CE, this is one of the best-preserved antique theaters in the world. Sit on marble seats with a view of a two-story construction called a skene--the actors' dressing room. Look for the excavated inscriptions and statues on the stage, which were incorporated into the building's architecture after its reconstruction. Today, the theater serves the city's contemporary cultural life and seats about 500 people. Stop at the entrance for informational materials. Request a guided tour, if you'd like one, before your visit. To visit Plovdiv Roman Theatre and other attractions in Plovdiv, use our Plovdiv vacation trip planner.

  • Plovdiv (aka Filippopol, aka Trimontium and Filibe)-a wonderful city: charming and incredibly interesting millennial story it turns out to be right underfoot literally under your feet! In the 1970s he excavated, carefully restored Roman theatrica now serves on its intended purpose-stage for festivals and concerts! Entrance fee 6, Leo

  • In order to get there you must climb steadily up the mosshhennym road. Given that in Plovdiv is hot enough it is not so easy. But finally you're back and here is the Roman amphitheatre. Course of white marble. A great overview of the city. A very original look a few buildings around, which practically hanging from the cliffs. I believe that this is the main attraction of Plovdiv.
