Sites around Plovdiv

Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It is a contemporary of Troy and older than Rome, Athens and Constantinople. It provides a great opportunity for a day trip. There is not an exact answer to the question how old the city is. Excavations in 1975 revealed the ruins of a religious building of the Crete-Mycenae Era, which are comparable only to what was found on the island of Knossos. The Three Hills give a clear idea of what the ancient fortifications dating back to Byzantine and Roman times used to be like.


Unquestionably, the best preserved, and the most beautiful of the gates to the fortress is the Hisar Kapia. A secret passageway with a tunnel staircase, connecting the fortress with the bank of the Maritsa River, was discovered in the rocks underneath Nebet Tepe Hill. The residential area, discovered during the construction of the Trimonzium Hotel, spreads over 0.6 hectares. The areas of the ancient forum that are open for visitors clearly show the different levels of construction: the sandstone structures remaining from the Thracian town and the marble ruins from the Roman period. Underneath the department store lies a fantastic horseshoe-shaped Roman stadium. It is 180 meters long and can seat 30 000 people. The amphitheater is the most spectacular monument of Roman times. It can seat about 7000 spectators. Many of the historical monuments and archeological relics in Plovdiv are from the period of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom. A few important architectural monuments from the time of the Ottoman Empire give us a clue as to what the city looked like then.


The Old Plovdiv Architectural Reserve consists of many extremely beautiful houses from the 18th and 19th century. Most of the buildings were restored in the mass scale campaign for renovation and conservation of the Old Plovdiv undertaken in the 1960s. There are also many churches located in Plovdiv. The St. Constantine and Elena Church, located in the Old Town, was built in 1831, and is a typical example of 19th century church architecture. The very old St. Constantine and Elena icon is located there, and it is believed to have miraculous powers.
