  Plovdiv is located in the central part of the Upper Valley, on both banks of the Maritsa River. The city of seven hills - eternal city. "Old Plovdiv" leave a trail for its museums and galleries containing valuable exhibits, cozy cafes where we can enjoy the sight of foreigners and Nashenci agape, staring at the magnificence of Old Town. In 1956 the old town was declared an architectural and historical reserve. It is no coincidence. We spend hours enjoying the curved cobblestone streets, decorated with carvings and interesting patterns. Side of the street vendors there with miniature models and images of the city, which attract foreign visitors. From inside the walls after 10 years of archaeological research has revealed a remarkable size ancient theater, which was subsequently restored. Another remarkable building is open at the western foot of the hill Taksim Square "Dzhumayata." There you can see a restored ancient stadium sector of Philippopolis. I will watch old houses quietly served its cozy atmosphere. There are older houses, bearing the characteristics of the Bulgarian mountain house with open porch. In 1979 the Old Town received a gold medal for the Conservation of European monuments of the past. Visit this amazing place and let the spirit of the old streets and past.
