“Plovdiv is beautiful”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

There are lots of delicious restaurans cafes in Plovdiv. The historic 'ancient' Plovdiv is very attractive. There are also nice old Turkish wooden houses in the old Plovdiv. You can also try to go Casinos and also try to go Hissar for Termal baths from 40 km from Plovdiv. You will spend good time in Plovdiv. We loved it and will go to visit again.

“Deteriorating over time”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Old Town consists of a few winding streets, and was very quiet when we were there. Although there are some interesting buildings, it is a shame that much of it has been covered with graffiti. We spent a day here and felt we had seen it all - you could easily cover it in half a day.

“A good wander - museums and art too”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Great to wander around and to visit the various museums. The State/City Gallery of Fine Arts (ul Saborna 14) in the Old Town is well worth a visit if you enjoy painting and sculpture - some really good Bulgarian art.
