Plovdiv is majestic. If you love art and history- this is a fantastic place.

Plovdiv is Bulgaria’s second biggest city, which treasures a history that goes back thousands of years, traces of which have survived to the present day. The Thracians founded Plovdiv during the Neolithic period in the 2nd millennium BC. Later, during the period of the Roman Empire, it was a major centre of the province of Thrace; many archaeological finds dating from the 2nd – 3rd century, testify for those glorious times. The Old Town was built in the 18th-19th centuries as the centre of the Bulgarian National Revival architecture. Along steep cobblestone lanes, behind stone walls and iron-studded heavy oak gates, one could glimpse at verdure and flowers, surrounding the typical Plovdiv symmetrical houses with their painted facades, oriels and jetties and grid windows. The St. Constantine and St. Helena Church completed in 1832, contains murals painted in 1836 by Zachary Zograph, the best known Bulgarian National Revival painter.The Old Town of Plovdiv is known as Bulgaria's Montmartre for its dozens of art galleries and antique shops.

 

We will visit:

  • The Roman Forum, Stadium, Fortress Walls, and above all, the fabulous Roman Amphitheatre, which was built during the time of Emperor Trajan (98-117). It has 28 rows with tiers of marble seats, which can accommodate over 3 500 spectators and today is still functioning
  • We will walk along the Old Town with spectacular architecture of the National Revival period (18th – 19th century) and will visit two house museums.

Optional: Wine Testing session in Plovdiv's enoteca.
