“Quiet old streets sprinkled with churches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

A pleasant area to stroll around, with church courtyards to sit in. Very few eating places. No hassle at all from local people.

“Lovely to just wander around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Can become very touristy and busy at times but lovely place to wander around, look into some of the art and antique shops and see the Roman ruins.

“Great to explore the old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We spent about several hours over 2 different days exploring the old town and its Roman remains. The amphitheatre was in use so we could not visit that, which was a real pity as Roman history is one of our strong interests. Being there on a Saturday meant we also saw several weddings but still managed to visit the churches being used. Wear good walking shoes as the cobbles can be challenging.

“Bohemian, peaceful and full of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Bulgaria. A town with amazing ruins, restored National Revival Houses and a lively art scene.
