Plovdiv Roman Theater Tours

Plovdiv Roman Theater
Plovdiv’s Roman Theater is one of the world’s best preserved ancient theaters, originally built during the reign of Roman Emperor Trajan. Incredibly, the theater lay undiscovered for centuries and was only found in the 1970s after a landslide revealed its remains. Its restoration is considered one of the greatest achievements in conservation in Bulgaria.

Sitting between two hills in the Old Town of Plovdiv, the theater combines stylistic features of Hellenistic and Roman theaters and has several walls and steles inscribed with Byzantine Greek. The benches are made of marble and many are engraved with the names of municipal districts, indicating where patrons should sit. Facing south toward the Rhodope Mountains, the theater is still in use today, hosting both theatrical plays and musical shows during the summer months. Possibly the most recognizable landmark in Plovdiv, the theater also offers excellent acoustics and splendid views of the city and nearby mountains.

Practical Info

The Roman Theater is within easy walking distance of Plovdiv’s Old Town and there are signs that help point you in the right direction. It is also a highlight on any walking tour of the city.

Visitors can see inside of the theater for free, but to go inside the theater and walk around the auditorium, stage and backstage, a ticket must be purchased. Guided tours are also available.
