The good weather promised by the meteorologists and the spring in the air makes us dream about the several long weekends ahead. The collected holidays always mean more time for trips and for discovering new destinations and hidden places. The digital guide of the city under the hills always informs you of everything that is worth not missing and today will convince you why Plovdiv should become your preferred travel destination.
The city with the calmest and most aylyak atmosphere - it is no coincidence here that a lazy approach to life is a local feature, and as soon as you fall into place, you get that pleasant feeling of freedom and desire to just relax from everything and everyone.
The European Capital of Culture 2019 –it remains less than a year until the official start of the Plovdiv program, but interesting events can be found in many places. If you have missed taking a selfie next to the TOGETHER sign, now is the time to grab the cameras and plan your stay.
The perfect spot to visit thousands of sights and places - we offered short escape routes on several weekends HERE, HERE and HERE, and if you have more days available, we recommend planning a trip to the surrounding area.
We have an Old Town and a Creative district - we have written hundreds of thousands of words on the subject and since we don’t want to repeat ourselves, we’ll just remind you of our favorite articles on the subject HERE, HERE and HERE. There is no other atmosphere and a place where there is something for everyone - bohemian evenings and lazy afternoon walks, party nights and hundreds of sights. We even have a prepared route so grab the suitcase and follow the steps.
Mesmerizing views from the hills - we still have 6, so put on your comfortable shoes and get ready to meet or send the sun's rays. And as we all know, having a drink on the hill at sunset is a Plovdiv classic.
Culinary and wine tourism - the Thracian region is famous for its wine production and most of the red grape varieties are concentrated here. The climate conditions of the area, protected by sharp northern winds, favor the production of rich, dense, memorable red wines of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud varieties. Good wines from the local variety Mavrud are especially appreciated because they combine the aroma and taste of red berries, spices and grass.
You can walk - everything is within walking distance of the center, and most of the sights, museums, and galleries are located in this area. The moment you get tired, you sit for coffee and sweet temptation and you gather strength for a new adventure.
