One day in Plovdiv
Suitable period: April – November
Total transfer time: around 3 hours
Early pick-up form your hotel. After a transfer of 1 hour and a half (130 km.) we will visit the second largest city in Bulgaria: Plovdiv. In the year 342 BC. Philip II of Macedon conquered the settlement of the Thracians and turned it into a prosperous city center called Philippopolis. In AD 45 the city was conquered by the Romans and was renamed Trimontium. The Romans rebuilt it according to the Roman architectural tradition. From the 4th century the city played the role of capital in the administration of the province of Thrace.
Even more interesting to visit is the old part of the city. Here the picturesque houses of Bulgarian National Revival are next to the ruins of antiquity. The central part of the city is built towards the end of the 19th and early 20th century. The influence of European styles on architecture is well present.
The Old Plovdiv is an architectural and historical reserve, located on three hills. The first settlements go back to antiquity. At the highest elevation - the complex of the Nebettepe fortification - there are remnants of prehistoric settlements, the wall built by Philip of Macedon, not rebuilt until the invasion of the city by the Turks, ancient citadels, basements, towers, a dam medieval (today covered by a dome of metal structure) and other remains.
Late afternoon we will come back in Sofia, drop-off at you hotel. End of the tour.
