A contemporary of Troy, Plovdiv is a city upon layers of cities and an epoch upon layers of epochs. It is the second-largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia, with a city population of 346,893 and 675,000 in the greater metropolitan area. It is also an important economic, transport, cultural, and educational centre. There is evidence of habitation in Plovdiv dating back to the 6th millennium BC, when the first Neolithic settlements were established. It has been considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.
Also known as the City of the Seven Hills, Plovdiv is the Bulgarian capital of culture and it was also a European Capital of culture in 2019. Culture lovers can enjoy magnificent presentations with unique Bulgarian folk music and dances, opera performances, sitting in an authentic Roman amphitheatre, watching the craftsmen in their workshops and of course, visiting magnificent museums and galleries.
The Centre begins with the Trimontium Hotel and Tsar Simeon Garden, where you can enjoy the magical Singing Fountains at night. As you walk down the centre, you will have the opportunity to see many fascinating remains from Roman times. The Centre is divided into two parts, the Main Street and the Small Main Street, the latter of which leads right to Kapana district. It used to be a small central neighbourhood, but now it has been transformed into a social hub with cosy places for tasty food, refreshing drinks and handmade goods. After the Small Main Street, there is a Walking Bridge which leads right to Grad Hotel Plovdiv. The entire walk from Trimontium to Grand Hotel Plovdiv has become one of the longest walking zones in Europe.
