Plovdiv is the second-largest city in Bulgaria and one of the oldest cities in the country. Founded on seven hills around 4000 BCE, Plovdiv was originally a Thracian settlement. No fewer than twelve different ethnic groups conquered Plovdiv over the centuries, and the various groups` influences can be seen in such areas as the Old Town, with its Bulgarian Renaissance architecture; and the Roman City, centered on the Ancient Theatre of Philippopolis, which is still in use today. The city`s beautiful history and culture are on display everywhere you turn, and once you`re there, you will see why the European Union named Plovdiv a European Capital of Culture for 2019.
