Full description
Plovdiv is one of the oldest existing settlements in the world. It has preserved Thracian, Roman and Bulgarian heritage. You will see the Roman theater, walk through the longest pedestrian street in Europe and explore its unique old town. Plovdiv itself will be a European Capital of Culture in 2019. 

The cliche 'you must see Plovdiv to see Bulgaria; is absolutely true and there is so much to explore in the country's second largest town. Plovdiv is about 1.5-hour drive from Sofia and is situated in the western part of the Thracian Valley. It is one of the oldest settlements in the world, having emerged on the three adjacent hills – the beginning of its history dates back to 4,000 years B.C. It has preserved Thracian, Roman and Bulgarian heritage from different epochs. There will be a walking tour in the heart of the town and you will learn lots of historical facts and legends while exploring its most interesting sightseeing places.   

In the afternoon, you will go to the charming town of Koprivshtitsa with its fascinating history and authentic 19th century architecture. Spend the rest of the day in this small and picturesque town situated in central Bulgaria among the slopes of Stara Planina Mountain that carries a specific spirit of tranquility and eternity. Learn about the dramatic Bulgarian history from your professional guide and get the chance to visit the original houses of the heroes of the April Uprising.
