Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities in Europe – the beginning of its history dates back to 4,000 years BC. In the beginning, the ancient settlement was situated on the natural elevation between Nebet, Taksim and Dzhambaz hills (the Three Hills). In ancient times Thracians inhabited the Three Hills and built a fortified settlement – the largest city in Thrace. In the 4th century BC, Plovdiv was conquered by Phillip of Macedonia. He gave the city one of its many names – Phillipopolis and had it surrounded by thick fortified walls. Later the Thracians regained their power over the city, but after a series of battles in the 1st century AD, it became a part of the Roman Empire.
During the period of the Roman Empire, Plovdiv (at those times – Trimontium) was an important regional center. The city flourished with large-scale construction of buildings, facilities and roads. Numerous well-preserved artifacts had remained from those times, such as cobblestoned streets, fortress walls, buildings, water supply and sewerage systems.
The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country and a cultural and economic center of southern Bulgaria. There are many accommodation options here – from luxurious hotels to hostels. The main street of the city offers excellent opportunities for entertainment and shopping; the restaurants options are numerous.
