Plovdiv with Friends

It was our second visit to Bulgaria's second biggest city. We had previously spent a weekend in Plovdiv last May. This time we returned with our friends Susan and Ron who were visiting us from England. We parked near the Old Town and began wandering up the cobblestone streets.


First stop was at the Roman ampitheater in the Old Town, and from there we continued past the colorful, beautifully restored houses dating back to the Bulgarian Revival period.

Many of the houses have been turned into museums or art galleries, and entries were very inexpensive. We visited nearly all of these historical buildings.

  1. Thanks for the great photos! I just noticed on Lonely Planet, that this city is one of their top 10 cities to visit in 2015.
