“Nicely Restored Area of Plovdiv”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

We found Philippopolis to be a nicely restored Roman era area of Plovdiv. It borders old Town Plovdiv and a main, pedestrian town center, shopping promenade. The restorers did a very good job of blending in Philippopolis with both. We only wished that it wouldn't have been quite so hot during our visit.

“Great Past, nicely preserved and presented”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

Well done to all the people and authorities who are involved in preserving the historic old city centre. Great respect for the past, many preservation projects, nicely kept and clean roads. I wish the old town of Thessaloniki had followed this example and not the destructive path it chose to follow. If a poorer country like Bulgaria could do it, why not Greece?

“Renewed ancient stadioum in the center of Plovdiv”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

Very nice, renewed attraction in the middle of Plovdiv, on square Djumaya. You can sit on the benches there and just watch the history. There is nice music playing most of the time.
