I took so many photos during my recent trip to Plovdiv that I couldn’t share all in one post, so here are the rest. Old Plovdiv is not just beautiful, it is also ancient, with a distinct and fascinating history dating back to 4000 BC, incorporating Thracian, Greek, Roman and Ottoman influences. On the three hills Plovdiv is situated on, you can see the remains of a fortress, a very well preserved Roman Amphitheater and multiple beautifully-ornamented houses from the Bulgarian National Revival era of the 18th and 19th centuries. I stayed in Hotel Hebros, an original 19th century house with antique furniture combining elegance, history and a unique location in the heart of the Old Town.

    I spent a night in Hotel Hebros as a child! Is it still as authentic and immersive as before? I remember my younger sister was bewildered by the ancient furniture, she wasn’t into it!
