The most prestigious cultural initiative of the European Union. There will be many events and activities in Plovdiv and the South Central Region of Bulgaria - where history lies hidden, but not forgotten.

We will start our 2-3h tour walking through the cobble stoned streets of the Old town. Discover the history that lies behind every corner of the city that begins since 8000 years ago. 

Experience the mixture of culture, history and art that is the vibrant city of Plovdiv! Museums, roman ruins, art galleries, street musicians, local and international cuisine, craft beer joints, restaurants with local wine lists and much more is what Plovdiv has to offer for its visitors.
