Exploring the charming and remarkable old town of Plovdiv | По улиците на стария Пловдив

The old Plovdiv is one of the oldest European cities which was continuously inhabited since Ancient times. At the entrance is the Church of the Holy Mother of God  – an impressive building which was constructed in 1844. Medieval streets with cobbled lanes will lead you further to the top of the hill where Ancient Theatre remained preserved from Roman times. Plovdiv has always been a large trading centre through the centuries, one of the major cultural centres of Bulgarian culture and tradition, and also an important centre for the Bulgarian national movement during the rule of the Ottoman empire. If you are interested, just google it and you will find a lot of information about the city and its history.

Тесни павирани улички, цветни възрожденски къщи и история от древни времена те пренасят няколко века назад, когато се разхождаш в Старинен Пловдив. На входа те посреща величествената сграда на храма „Свето Успение Богородично“, а някъде отгоре идва мелодията от гайдата на уличен музикант. Вървиш, снимаш, почиваш си, защото в стария град сякаш времето е спряло. Стигаш до Античния театър - пред теб се извисяват останки от римско време на фона на един забързан модерен град. Важен търговски център през вековете, градът продължава да е водещ фактор в създаването и разпространяването на традициите и културата. Прекрасно е, че си имаме такова историческо богатство, не мислите ли?
