The cliche “you must see Plovdiv to see Bulgaria” is absolutely true and there is so much to explore in the country’s second-biggest city. Plovdiv (160 m a.s.l.), a 2-hour drive from Sofia, is situated in the western part of the fertile Thracian Valley. It is also one of the oldest European towns contemporary to Troya and Mycenae. With about a 2-hour walking tour you will learn about its intriguing history while exploring the charming historic quarter of the city – a fabulous architectural ensemble of beautifully decorated 19th-century houses, the ancient fortress-walls, magnificent churches and Roman structures like the 7000 seater theater and 30 000 seater stadium.


  • Take a guided tour in the Old Town of Plovdiv where art, culture, and history collide into an unforgettable experience
  • There is no better way to maximize your time in Plovdiv and learn about its major sights
  • Plovdiv will be the European Cultural Capital for 2019
