Once in the city you will notice that most of the old town area of Plovdiv is pedestrianized with the main downtown street actually being blocked to road traffic altogether. The old town is populated with a solid collection of Bulgarian revival buildings which now act as museums, restaurants, hotels and such, definitely worth a visit.
During some nearby construction work in the 70′s a Roman Amphitheater was discovered and this is now also part of the pedestrianized area. This is where you’ll find all sorts of merchants selling art and other things.
The city also has its fair share of religious sights, such as the St. Marina Church which features a rather unique wooden tower as well as a mosque dating back to the times when the Ottoman Empire conquered the region.
The Bachkovo Monastery can be found to the south of the city, it is still in use and if you wish to venture further into the Rhodope mountains you will find some good ski resorts as well as a plethora of breathtaking natural attractions.
One activity that anyone can enjoy is to walk alongside the various hills that surround the city, seeing the sunset from atop any of them is a very enjoyable sight.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Plovdiv so make sure to consider employing our Plovdiv car hire services in order to better experience it and its surroundings.
