Old Town of Plovdiv - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Currently, Plovdiv is a modern city with an ancient spirit and charm, emanating from its numerous remains of old times. No doubt the biggest sight of Plovdiv is The Old Town. The Old Town is declared an archeological reserve and covers the three-hill area where the town was located originally. Almost all historical sights of Plovdiv can be found there religious sanctuaries, old residential and public buildings, archeological monuments and museums, fortress walls and narrow cobbled streets. The most impressive building of Roman times is the Ancient Roman Amphitheatre, situated close to the southern entrance of the former Roman fortress. The amphitheatre, which is the best preserved building of that time in Bulgaria, was built by Emperor Mark Aurelius in 2nd c. AC. Other landmarks within the old town are the Nebet Tepe archeological complex, the Phillipopolis fortress walls, Hissar Kapiya (eastern gate of the fortress), etc.
