Directions to The Old Town of Plovdiv
The Old Town of Plovdiv is a unique city within the city of Plovdiv with its own rhythm and lifestyle. The architectural reserve features archaeological sites, museums, art galleries, old houses and public buildings, religious temples, cafes and restaurants, romantic courtyards and picturesque cobblestone streets. The Old Plovdiv is a popular venue for concerts and exhibitions, casual and business meetings, sightseeing or just strolling around.
This attraction is located only 40 minutes walk from the Central Railway Station (about 10 minutes in a car). The walking route is easy and shows most of the city center. From the Central Railway Station Square take the Hristo Botev street to the Central Square where the Post Office is. Turn left to get on the main pedestrian (and shopping!) street Knyaz Alexander I and walk about 500 m. You will reach the remains of an ancient Roman Stadium. The Old Town is on your right - take any of the narrow streets climbing up the hills and explore.
Here are some of the sites and attractions in the area - the Fortress Complex on Nebet Tepe, The Ancient Stadium at Djoumaya Square, the Ancient Philippopolis' Forum, Zlatyo Boyajiev Gallery, the Nedkovich House, the Stepan Hindlyan House, the Ancient Theatre, the Balabanov House, The Odeon of the Ancient Philippopolis. Most of these have free admission and where it is otherwise, the entrance fee is usually minimal with further reductions for students and pensioners.
