Plovdiv, Bulgaria`s second largest city.
It`s one of the oldest still living European cities - contemporary to Troy, older than Rome and Athens. It keeps thousands monuments from prehistoric times - 8 000 years ago, from the time when Alexander the Great called it Philipopolis - in memory of his father Philip - 4 c.B.C., from the days it was capital of the Thracian kingdom - till 45 A.D.
Roman theater, stadium, odeon, mosaics, Renaissance houses and islamic, orthodox, catholic and Jewish temples adorn the city, which is geological, botanical, archaeological, historical and architectural reserve. Many travelers, for example Evliya Cheleby from the 17 c. call it the most beautiful of all Balcan cities...
It is indeed!
