A wonderful place to visit, a bit of climb but so worth it as you get a view of plovdiv as part of the visit. Would highly recommend a visit if in Plovdiv

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were with an archaeology group so it was a must. Very well-preserved Roman theatre. If you haven't seen one try to do so

“Impressive and interesting”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a historical building in the city center of Plovdiv. The theatre is one of the numerous constructions from the time of the Roman Empire, preserved in Bulgaria.
The theatre is an ancient semi-circle Roman theatre.
You can see the rows of marble seats in the open spectators' area.
The stage building has 3 floors.
It is recommended not only to walk inside the theatre, but also to climb the hill and see the theatre from there too.

“Historic city”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

There are lots of good restaurants and cafes in Plovdiv. Try to go old Plovdiv on foot. The way of old Plovdiv is stony and hilly but there are lots of beautiful old wooden houses 'Turkish'. You can take lots of photos while walking. Try to go casinos of Plovdiv.
The theather is fantastic. Eat ice cream by kilos ;-) believe me, it is delicious.
Try to go Hissar for Thermal spring it is away frim Plovdiv for 40 km. İs it very nice town.

We loved it with my wife and 22 months age child. ;-)

“Great Place”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

It is a good walk and will provide you with exercise but once you are there you get fantastic views of the city. Sunset is amazing out here and there is a nice small coffee shop where you can soak in the beauty of this place
