Plovdiv Roman Theatre, Plovdiv
(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I'd say seeing the remains of thousands of years so well preserved it is always a thrill and should always be 5 *, however, we must be able to better exploit, poor reporting to get there, with the ticket paid they will not give you even a slip of paper with a minimum of info missing even in the small box where you buy the entrance.

  • Extremely interesting location, the city is under a high point, go to the main route of Plovdiv. Lelátószintjéről the theatre to see the city. Around the charming streets there are restaurants, cafés.
