When you’re planning a trip to the city of Plovdiv make sure that you also consider our Plovdiv car hire services as part of your expenses as you will benefit greatly from having a car at your disposal. Plovdiv is Bulgaria’s second largest city as well as one of the oldest cities in Europe, the area having been settled for eight thousand years.
The city is served by the rather small Krumovo Airport which connects to the city via bus routes and taxis but your best choice would be to employ our Plovdiv car rental services and have a car ready and waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land.
While in the city you will notice that the downtown area is one large pedestrian zone, this is due to the fact that the old center of the city is very compact and in order to preserve it car traffic is blocked. You can see many Bulgarian revival buildings which are now used as museums, hotels and restaurants but as an interesting bonus there is a Roman Amphitheater located nearby which is part of the pedestrian zone, a piece of the ancient alongside the more medieval is always interesting.
Walking around this area you will find the Saint Marina church which features a rather unique wooden tower as well as a mosque dating from when the city was under Ottoman rule.
The old center used to feature a protective wall since that is what used to be the city a few hundreds of years ago but now the gateway entrance is what survived and is worth a visit.
With the benefit of a car you can explore farther away from the city, you can for instance enjoy the sunset from the many hills that the city is built on and around or you can visit the Bachkovo Monastery situated to the south of the city and then if you choose to explore further into the Rhodope mountain range you will find some great ski resorts as well as a wide variety of natural attractions.
These are just some of the things that you can enjoy if you choose to employ our Plovdiv car hire services.
