Plovdiv is the Bulgarian city where the wedding took place, and where we headed after a day in Sofia.
The second biggest city in the country, a bit more than 300,000 citizens (similar to Alicante); it is one of the most beautiful and tourist-oriented cities in the country. It has got remains from the different ages the city has witnessed, and all religions can be found in the city, as in the whole country.
Plovdiv was specially important in the Roman period, and it even had an amphitheater and a stadium. Both of these constructions can be seen in a walk through the city, and the amphitheater can be fully visited.
Another important period of the city was the 3rd Bulgarian State, and plenty of houses of rich people and merchants are spread all over the hill where the town center is situated.
We also did a daytrip tour to a nearby fortress, Assen’s fortress, an amazing location to defend Plovdiv from any crazy assailant.
