Get to know Plovdiv with Viator

Often considered the oldest city in Europe thanks to its 8,000 years of history, Plovdiv showcases countless layers. Ancient Roman ruins lie next to the 14th-century Ottoman Dzhumaya Mosque in the modern heart of this southern Bulgarian city, while Plovdiv’s Old Town brims with 19th-century Bulgarian Revival architecture. This living history contrasts nicely with the abundance of youthful energy found in the city’s Kapana artistic quarter.
