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.

  • We didn't pay to enter as you can easily sit on the outside and see the facade. It would be great to see a performance here. 
  • AWE and wonder for a piece of history that has been able to resist time and the series of events that have characterized this part of Bulgaria formerly part of Thrace. Sunday was supposed to be open but unfortunately was closed. Panoramic view from the top and very impressive

  • Good attraction into a theater still much used by the local population. Stay right in the Center. At the top of a hill.
