Picturesquely situated on 3 hills, more ancient than Bulgaria itself, the city preserves the eternal values of its 6 millenia-long history like a huge pantheon. The town is one of the ancient crossroads between East and West with many landmarks remaining from Roman times.

The Bulgarian National Revival architecture (18th - 19th centuries) in the old town was created by Bulgarian master builders.

Along the steep cobblestone lanes, behind stone walls and iron-studded gates, rising silhouettes in warm colours, overhanging facades with many windows and striking details, shape the appearance of the Plovdiv symmetrical house.

Every house has its own style and atmosphere, its intimate world with carved ceilings and bright murals, with fine furniture from Venice, Vienna and London.
