Customer Travel Tip: I would definitely recommend visiting Plovid. If you only have a day or two that would be enough to see the sites, but if you wanted to relax, spends some time in a cafés or wandering with friends Plovdiv would be the plave for you!

Liked: Beautiful, relaxed and friendly city with lots of little sites to offer. The city also has an amazing free walking tour called Free Plovdiv.

Disliked: There was nothing I disliked, but as a solo traveller in a quieter season I did run out of things to do after an day and a half.

Trip Type:
Events / festivals Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Get a local map and plan the points to visit beforehand so you don't end up wandering aimlessly. If you visit Bachkovo Monastery, make sure everything is open, we went to spend the day and most of the interest points were closed. Don't change your money in any airport, Plovdiv centre has plenty of change houses that respect the currency exchange rate.

Liked: People are friendly, very relaxed. Lots of history and culture, art and music. Kitties everywhere! And they seem to be well taken care after by the people. The old town is a place to stay for hours, kept the aspect of an ancient town, without any changes. Free shows in the roman amphitheatre, to see dance and music from the place. Loved it.

Disliked: People drive like mad.
