Plovdiv: what to see
Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities in Europe. The beginning of its history dates back to 4,000 years BC. We will explore the Old town with the Roman ruins and the Kapana art area. Kapana means trap because it is so easy to get lost in the small streets with the bars and small shops. In the old town some of the beautiful houses today are museums. While walking on the cobble-stoned streets, we will see some of them. Also we will enjoy the shopping pedestrian street.
If you are a wine lover, we suggest a visit to a local winery. Here you will learn more about the wine making in the region.
