“Step in to an Era”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

I was on a business trip to Plovdiv & had just few hours before my flight back home and locals suggested me to invest those few hours in this place and I am glad that the returns were far better than I had imagined. Beautiful hoses and museums transport us back to the Renaissance era. Must visit if you are in Bulgaria

“small Epidaurus”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Reminiscent of the theater of Epidaurus in miniature. It is in the city center and you can easily reach the shops round there.

“Plovdiv: the old capital”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Plovdiv has all the charm of a city steeped in history. Compared to Sofia which is modern and chaotic. Plovdiv is one of those ancient cities where you can peal back the layers of time and find flavours of the East and West.

The city is relatively small and people are more laid back and friendly. It is a very pleasant place to visit whether you like culture, going out or just sitting back people- watching.

Plovdiv is also fast developing as a centre for medical tourism. You can get your eyes or teeth done at a fraction of the cost of most European cties.

“Def go”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Had a horrible experience in Sofia- got ripped off by a cab driver. Had a wonderful time in Plovdiv to make up for it. A must go.
