I went to a romantic trip in Plovdiv and we went to visit the old town. It is so nice. You can feel the history. The design of the houses is authentic and lovely. We really enjoyed. What a beautiful city.

Old town in Plovdiv is cozy and sweet area of the city. You have to take time and wander in the stone streets. Lot of Bulgarian history has left a mark there from golden ages of Bulgaria. Go there!

Fascinating city. One of the oldest in the world. The traveler needs to read a little about the history of the town but also about the country. I love it and stay there twice every year for the last 15 years.

Very interesting mix of old that has not been ruined with modernisation. The roads and pavements are very rough and care must be taken when walking

Plovdiv Old Town is not a beautiful place like many others. It is a place with more than 2000 years history. Opera or classical music in roman theater is super. Old streets with old churches, 200 years old architecture, many museums and art galleries but all this leaves today. I see many yang pupils in restaurants and cafes, good musicians... More

Nestled behind modern architecture you will find a myriad of cobbled streets lined with historical places of interest, eateries and boutiques selling traditional bulgarian wares. An absolute must see.

Very nice and graphic place with many things to see and do!The only bad thing is the road that will damage your car.I suppose they left it this way for historical reasons but it is very dangerous and need some work to be easy for a simple car to cross it!!
