This place is full of culture, in the summer there is constant concerts and events and is very enjoyable to watch performances outdoors. The seats are slightly uncomfortable. Bring a coat if you're visiting a concert in the evening.

This was at the top of my list of things to see in Bulgaria. I attended the opera Aida summer of 2016, it was an incredible experience. There is so much history to see and experience in Plovdiv, experiencing a performance in this theater should be at the top of the list.

What a great place to visit! What I like about this place is that it is accessible, you can walk around in this beautiful theater and experience live music there as well. Chris Cornell, Jethro Tull, Bulgarian Orchestra, all kinds of musicians play here! Unlike the amphitheater in Athens this one is completely accessible, not fenced off! This is the... More

We didn't pay to enter as you can easily sit on the outside and see the facade. It would be great to see a performance here.

It was great to discover all the history that we can find in Plovdiv. The Roman theater was a good example. I truly recommend it to history lovers.
