Lost in Plovdiv Team continue our series with Megan who shares with us her favorite things about Plovdiv and Bulgaria
"I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I am an educator by profession and an entrepreneur. I have recently opened up a language school in the heart of Plovdiv called Central Language Hub. The aim is to provide people with an opportunity to learn English from a native English speaker. I want to give them authentic experiences like I had growing up and to teach them not only language but a respect for other cultures, the environment, and a positive mindset.
I love traveling and by chance, I discovered Slovenia – where I met my now husband and ended up in this beautiful hidden gem! I guess like most people I came here for love. I love Bulgaria, the great food, and great weather! I think it’s a country with a lot of opportunity and room for growth. "
When friends visit Plovdiv for the first time we go to...Oh, so many beautiful places! First stop has to be in Kapana for a beer! The neighborhood has such a nice vibe and foreigners love all the bars and cafes in such an artsy district. After that, it’s a must to see the ancient theatre and the old town.
When it’s party time I go to...Fargo – it’s the place to be when you want good cocktails and music
The most underrated place in Plovdiv is...Alosha – the view is great!
A place in Plovdiv that always wows people is...the ancient theatre and the Roman stadium, people really love the old meets new that can be found in the city.
For a delicious food I usually go to...my aunties! Nothing like a home cooked Bulgarian meal. But Pavaj and Poco Loco are definitely up there!
The coolest place in town is...Kapana – an ever-growing pedestrian zone! A new place is always popping up and it’s full of events.
My alternative route in Plovdiv is…anywhere and everywhere, it’s such a walkable city!
My least favorite thing in Plovdiv is...the recycling system - or lack there of - and the use of plastic bags and cups
