See a variety of archaeological relics from the Thracian, Roman, and medieval eras at Plovdiv Old Town, one of the oldest European towns. The history of the City of the Seven Hills spans 6,000 years. Visit one of many ruins preserved from antiquity, such as the Roman theater, odeon, stadium, and the archaeological complex Eirene. Bulgarian master builders erected the National Revival town of Plovdiv--or the Old Town--in the 19th century. Walk down the steep cobbled lanes alongside houses with large bay windows and slender columns, latticed eaves, oak gates, green yards, and marble fountains. Other notable sights include art galleries, churches, and a street of folk arts and crafts.

The interiors of the historic houses must definitely be seen. Fascinating places. The ceiling decorations are extraordinary in pen workmanship on the walls. The standard of living and height of that period is astounding. The facades of nearly all houses have been restored and maintained. The craftsmanship on the walls must be seen. The Mevlevi household is unfortunately used as a restaurant. It's so sad. It was supposed to be protected, like the original.
