Plovdiv is one of the oldest inhabited cities in Europe and some even say it’s the oldest one. Ancient discoveries can be found almost everywhere in the city. Walking the central boulevard is also a must-do. You can experience the lively, kind of bohemian atmosphere.
If you are coming to Bulgaria, make sure you pack some bigger jeans because for really reasonable prices you will get a lot of food. Bulgarians are justifiably proud of their cuisine, with its Turkish, Greek and Slavic influences. In Plovdiv, meals are supposed to be enjoyed in a company, and most Bulgarians relish the opportunity to introduce foreign friends to the pleasures of homemade food.
Bulgaria is the small Eastern European country with high mountains; great sea resorts, and cute, cozy little towns. With its vibrant atmosphere, centuries-old history, interesting culture and impressive views Plovdiv is one of those cities you should visit at least once in your lifetime.
Plovdiv is the second biggest city in Bulgaria. The town is located in South-Central Bulgaria, 150 km from Sofia. The town in its present appearance was built around seven hills – the hills of Plovdiv (Plovdiv Tepes) which are an inseparable part of the city’s history.
The ancient city built on seven hills, called “tepeta” (from Turkish) by the locals, is among the oldest continuously inhabited places not only in Europe but in the world. The first prehistoric settlements in today’s Plovdiv territory date way back to the VI millennia BC.
Plovdiv is set to be the European Capital of Culture for 2019 and it becomes as famous as it deserves to be. Town has also a Bohemian quarter called “The Trap” (Kapana). Kapana is where many of the city's musicians and artists hang out in the evenings, hobnobbing with students and young professionals.
