    Visited on a cold Sunday.
    Nice old town, good shops and restaurants.
    Would visit again as a nice place to wonder round and have something to eat.
    People where nice, not like Sofia where everyone tried to rip you of and don’t smile.

    Situated at the top of the Old Town on a steep hill.
    The entrance at the top gives you a great panoramic view looking downhill.
    The steps down are rather steep and the seating is on stone slabs.
    There is a pretty large stage which was being prepared for a concert or play.
    There was also a decent small cafe just outside the gate with some seating ideal for a drink afterwards

    Very nice museum. It has a special and well-kept yard. Inside you will see the history of the city in terms of clothing, jewelry and other objects. Worth the visit.

    The park is situated in the heart of Plovdiv. It's nice area for walk, specially during the summer, when is too hot outside. There are playgrounds and benches. The Singing Fountains are also there.

    How the Romans ruins always capture my attention, by building a concert like oval, that’s one for me is iconic and really tells a story of living a life to the fullest by designing things that even today we really enjoyed, highly recommended.

    Situated on the peak of a rather steep hill, the stone Russian soldier is an official WW2 monument. There has been a monumental statue of some kind here since antiquity (which in Plovdiv goes back eight thousand years). The park leading up to the monument is especially lovely in spring. If you go there by car you can leave your car for free (one hour) in the multi-storey underground parking of the nearby shopping mall (Markovo Tepe).

    This church is one the most meaningful churches in Plovdiv. It's big and nicely decorated in the interior.

    A bit out of the way from the main center and not many signs to reach it, but this is a nice attraction that you can do in less than an hour. There are panels of information in English and you walk on a glass screen over the mosaics. There is some interesting symbolism in the pictures in the mosaics, like the peacock. This basilica is from Roman times but a Christian church.

    We stayed right next door to this great little gallery during our trip to Plovdiv. Some of the art is for sale, some of it is museum quality work that is on permanent display. The staff was very nice and the time you'll spend here is well worth the small price to pay to view the art.

    A beautiful museum with fascinating items from across different time periods. We spent around two hours perusing ancient tools, old coins and Roman statues. I would recommend anyone with an interest in the past to go along and be amazed at the well preserved artifacts on display.

    This is one of the very few working mosques in Plovdiv. It's vast and always crowded. Outside is one of the most famous turkish cafes in town.
