Visiting Plovdiv


Plovdiv is the second largest Bulgarian city. It has several interesting Roman remains and a beautiful old town famous for its symmetrical houses.

We got to Plovdiv by coach from Sofia. We bought our ticket for 13 lev at the Central Sofia bus station. There was a fairly frequent service. We came back by train for around 8lev 10 cents. The train service is also fairly frequent though the trains are a bit slower. The bus took two hours, the fast train back took two and a half. Slower trains take three.

The River

Plovdiv's beautiful river is worth a look, too

Plovdiv is an excellent location to wander aimlessly enjoying the scenery and the pavement cafes.
