Really. When you're inside the Theatre you could see a house on the top that reminds Bates Hotel in Psycho. You can imagine you are representing Shakespeare to hundreds of persons in front of you, being mystical. And you can imagine to be a fake gladiator, waiting for the tigres to come out for every corner in the theatre. Beautiful,... More

It is very nice Roman theatre. Well preserved and very well located - on the hill with a nice view of the City.

There are few places around the world that capture antiquity in a way that literally brings it back to life... Especially when you don't have to go more than 50 meters away from a modern urban center. Catch a performance. An opera or concert does not require you to understand Bulgarian. Sitting in the named chair of a Roman patrician... More

They didn't know it was there until a landslide in the 1970s! Again in use, there are often evening programs offered in the summer. We saw Ansamble Trakia perform to a packed audience of 5000, and imagined that it was like that in the Roman days. You have to be somewhat physically fit to climb up and down the very... More

Worth the time and the climb. I had no idea of all the old ruins in Bulgaria. At night very lit up with colors.

I don't know of many places that let you freely walk around ancient structures. You may do so here. And productions are still presented here from time to time. You can watch a show just as our past peoples did. Perhaps the ghosts of performers past sit amongst us, entertained by our talents of today?

Amazing, "must see" Plovdiv site. If you can go during a rehearsal, you can see a free show and appreciate this amazing acoustics and view.

After a lot of walking up and down hills and paying attention to the difficult cobblestones, it was great just to relax at an outdoor bar at the top of the hill and gaze at the wonderful old Roman Theatre. It would have been fabulous to see a show there but there was nothing playing that evening.
