To get rid of stress and to recharge for the upcoming week? Plovdiv is the place where with friends or family, you can treat yourself to an unforgettable experience. Take your phone, tag yourself with #visitplovdiv and enjoy the weekend in the city under the hills. Here are our suggestions: 

Take a walking tour of the Old Town

A place that is not to be missed when visiting the city under the hills is the Old Town - one of the most emblematic sites of Plovdiv.

The Old Town

There is magic in its cobbled streets unlike anywhere else. Here you can experience the atmosphere of the Renaissance, discovering beautiful old houses that have preserved the spirit of the past, impressive fortress walls, archaeological monuments from different eras, museums, galleries and religious temples. Look for the houses of Balabanov and Kuyumdzhiev; see the houses of Nedkovich, Hindliyan and Klianti; visit the exhibitions of the City Art Gallery and the Regional History Museum.

Be sure to see the majestic Ancient Theater - a favourite tourist attraction and another one of Plovdiv’s symbols. It is a stage under the open air sky, which hosts cultural events, festivals, concerts and performances.

Take a walk along the central street and indulge in shopping and culinary feasts

With its 1,750 m, the Main Street of Plovdiv is the longest pedestrian zone in Europe. Here you can enjoy a charming mix of styles with ornaments and elements of classicism, baroque, rococo, secession and modernism. This is not only the perfect starting point for a tour, but also a highly developed shopping area. Plovdiv is the perfect place for a truly wonderful culinary experience. No matter what you choose from the world's culinary palette, modern fusion cuisine or homemade prepared food, it must be combined with the rich wine list of the largest wine region in the country.

Immerse yourself in the diversity of the creative industrial district – Kapana

Originating as a trade and craft district, today, Kapana’s charm is within its intertwining narrow streets and the original architecture of the buildings.

The modernized and renovated neighbourhood has become an attractive place for Plovdiv’s residents and guests with its multitude of festivals, holidays, exhibitions and concerts. Under the hanging decorated flags and among the scattered graffiti you can relax with a cup of aromatic coffee or a cocktail and in the evening you can enjoy a chef's menu and artistic interior in one of its many restaurants.

Embrace the spirit of Plovdiv

In its thousand-year history, the oldest living city in Europe has always been a cultural center in the heart of numerous civilizations. Plovdiv attracts not only with its ancient history but also with its rich events calendar.

Autumn is full of events for every taste: exhibitions in various art spaces, for music lovers - very exciting concerts, part of the autumn edition of the International Festival "Days of Music in the Balabanov House", Plovdiv GuitArt Fest, Plovdiv Jazz Fest, Puldin Ethno Fest and the European Music Festival. The Plovdiv State Opera has also prepared a rich and interesting programme. From November 13-15 one of the most prominent events for wine tourism in the country is held – the Young Wine Festival. We will depart from 2020 with a Christmas bazaar in Kapana. The flags are ready and under them, every guest can find fresh, new, and already favourite wonderful offerings.

Capture the sunset from the hills 

Plovdiv is well-known as the city under the hills. With them, the town was compared to Rome.

Although they are in an urban environment, some of the Plovdiv hills are valued as unique habitats of rare plants and animals. The hills are also home to a rich historical and archaeological heritage. Today they are a favourite place for relaxation. There is no other place so easily accessible, from where you can see the majestic views of the ancient city.

A weekend in Plovdiv is one of the best ways to get to know the oldest living city in Europe and give yourself a fantastic vacation and an exciting experience!
