Plovdiv Roman Theatre, Plovdiv

(4.5/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • The most advertised monument in Plovdiv are hard to find by yourself. In winter it is slippery and cold, almost everything is closed for access. But still-wonderful!

  • The antique theatre is located on a hill which now cuts through the highway. The combination came out amazing. And kind too. And scope is impressive.

  • It's hard to believe the history of this place. It's even more impressive that it's still used to this day. It's worth taking in a concert or a show there if you have the chance.  more »
