Bulgaria’s ancient city of hills is a largely undiscovered gem and one of the oldest cities in Europe. Often considered the country’s “second city,” its impressive history and placement along the route of Ottoman, Roman, Grecian and Byzantine occupation has resulted in a treasure trove of historic, cultural and architectural riches, all coexisting side-by-side for thousands of years.
From the Roman stadium, to the ruins of the Nebet Tepe fortress that looms over the town and the ornate mosques, the city is a trip through time.
Set along the Maritsa River, the city has the longest car-free pedestrian zone and promenade in Europe with the old town’s cobble stones streets, colorful Bohemian quarter of Kapana, and vibrant street scene a must to explore and enjoy the food and wine culture.
Surrounded by the Stara Planina mountains to the north, and the lush Rhodopes mountains to the south, the city is within a short drive to some of the Balkans most spectacular natural resources.
