Sofia-Bachkovo monastery-Assen's fortress-Plovdiv-Sofia


"Ancient and Eternal" Plovdiv is one of the most appealing cities in Bulgaria and the Balkans with its first foundations laid here between 6-8000 years ago thus making it older than Rome or even Beijing. Plovdiv is a great combination of real historical and archaeological treasures with the liveliness of a modern city and great cultural and night life. The most visited and admired is the hilly Old Town, built on three hills called "tepeta". The maze of cobbled streets which meander the area and contain the cuddled up revival houses with their colorful facades and ornate decoration don't fail to impress and take you back in time.
