The Old Town of Plovdiv takes you back a couple of centuries ago. It is an extremely beautiful and unique place! It is a must-see!

Ploviv's old town is very well preserved and is definately worths a visit. A tip for the ladies : avoid high heels since the roads are made of huge river stones with big gaps between and walking under these circumstances would be very difficult.

The old part is quite a contrast with the new part, and definetly one of the key parts of a visit to Plovdvid. Full of interesting buildings and also with a great view over the new part of the city, please bear in mind that the streets are cobbled which will make a bit of a challenge to visit it... More

Although the Old Town is not huge, it was lovely to wander around. A small park enhances the atmosphere. The street vendors are also interesting.

This is by far the greatest attraction in Plovdiv. The cultural complex is unique in Bulgaria. There are several other areal complexes such as Panagyurishte and Koprivshtica but this one is well preserved in a city that is 5000 years old!!

a walk through the old town area of Plovdiv is a must, with its cobble stone streets and old buildings, roman ruins and old world feel.

If you want to get a real feel of what Bulgaria used to be 200 years ago, that's the place to go. Cute cobbled streets, lovely house museums, hostels offering authentic atmosphere. Love everythig about it. Then, to enjoy the perfect view over Plovdiv, visit the Ancient theater, especially attractive when lighted in the evening. The perfect place to stroll... More

Really nice place to visit and see the old part of town, with its buildings and history. A lot of gift shops and great view of the city in one of the hills
