Traveling the Street of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

What a treat it was to visit Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The city dates back some 8,000 years ago, and is the oldest continually inhabited city in Europe. Old Town is the main tourists appeal, although we found gems placed sporadically throughout the city. It is a much smaller town than neighboring city, Sofia, and much calmer. Cafes are plentiful, and art galleries, a little shops line the cobble stoned roads. It’s a great walking city, and you can cover lots of ground on foot. The city boasts seven hills, although one was flattened during the communist era. Hikes to the top of these hill showcase splendid views (especially around sunrise and sunset). Perhaps one of the more remarkable structures is the well preserved Roman Amphitheater that is still used for open-air performances.

This charming city is a contender for Culture Capitol of Europe in 2019, and will surely be getting our vote!
