I like this town very much it has a living soul itself. Nice places to visit. You can also eat delicious food and drink in the pubs. Don’t forget to buy beatiful oil paintings from the artists near the big main street of Plovdiv.

Only in Europe can we see such things! And that's not all in this city. There are Roman ruins all around the town.

Plovdiv is very beautiful and has lots of history. We went there for a day and wished we were staying there instead of Sofia. Wish we had more time there! A must visit.
