4.5/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • A great outdoor venue for concerts, theatre, etc and in the Old Town with plenty of nearby bars and restaurants. Go there on a warm summer evening but take a cushion - stone seats! 
  • It's a cute place. Not the nicest place in plovdiv, but I when even love walk me into it.
