There is plenty to see in the vibrant and attractive old town:
Architectural complex “Old Plovdiv”
The Etnographical Museum - exhibiting fine example traditional artefacts and spiritual culture of the people from Rodopi Mountains. The house itself is probably the most beautiful house in Plovdiv - Bulgarian Baroque architecture from the 1847
The Roman Amphitheatre -one of the best preserved in Europe, from the 2nd AD
Mosque “Djumaia Djami” - one of the three examples of the oldest type of Ottoman worship buildings still preserved on the Balkan Peninsula
Roman Stadium - The flashiest competitions were the Alexandrian games, which were just like the Greek Olympic games.
Optional visit to Bachkovo Monastery - it is the second biggest monastery in Bulgaria and is located on the bank of Chepelare river in Rodopi Mountains some 35 km from Plovdiv. A prominent Byzantine statesman, of Georgian origin, founded it in 1083.
