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.
