This ancient roman theater, is situated in an interesting spot with a boulevard going underneath it. Apart from that it is very well preserved and enjoyable. It is the most famous monument in the city of Plovdiv and it's worth seeing! Even better if you...More

We went to see Devin Townsend Project here. An absolutely stunning venue for a gig, well organised and good sound. I can't comment on the place as a daytime tourist attraction, but I highly recommend the place for concerts.
