Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Stop #23

Plovdiv was, for me, the best part of Bulgaria.  It felt like the type of city that will grow to outpace the rest of the country.  And it had a Roman Amphitheater (which was undiscovered until a landslide in the 1970s) that kept me occupied for quite a while.


  • Walkable student city with great restaurants, galleries and bars
  • Competes with Sofia in things cultural and in nightlife.
  • Great walking city.
  • Lovely old town.
  • One of Bulgaria’s wealthiest and most cosmopolitan cities and also Bulgaria’s second largest road and railway hub and economic center.
  • Roman amphitheater.
  • Roman stadium.
  • Roman forum.
  • Roman Odeon.
