You are a history lover? This is the place to visit. Plovdiv Roman Theatre it's not just a sightseeing - it is a symbol, an experience and a historical architectural phenomena.

A must see landscape. I don't give 5 starts as I feel they are not preserving it very well (you will find boxes and junk inside). However, the views are great, the monument is AWESOME, and it's not too croudy (as it woul be in Italy, Greece or Spain).

The Roman theatre is located on the top of one of the hills of the city. From there we have an amazing view of Plovdiv. It's a place for a walking, for a coffee or just to sit and admire the view. Recommended!

Ancient Theater looks excellent both during the day and night with it's illumination. Entrance fee is 5 leva. The most amazing location in the city center above the tunnel.

Good - but not of the finest quality. A significant amount of imaginative rebuild! Bring your own information with you.

we didn't pay to enter but you can see quite without entering including the entrance where I presume the lions entered the arena.

I originally was going to skip Plovdiv, but then I read about this theatre. It's magnificent. And to think 6 years ago they didn't know it was there. According to the recommended free Plovdiv tour, it was found by accident and a brilliant archaeologist had to put it back together again. Why is this different from other Roman ruins? For... More

Normally, I went to look at the sight of this. Theatre stands on a hill, from which a magnificent view of Plovdiv. During the visit the theater was locked, so I've seen only from the outside. I could not believe it was built in Roman times. Theatre is really impressive and really shows how the rich cultural and historical tradition... More

A very pleasant surprise to find this restored and well cared for feature in the city centre. Information very clearly shown. No presence of beggars often seen round tourist sites in many European cities.
