Plovdiv was included in a prestigious ranking for cities for art holidays and has a cult following in Europe. The ranking is from the English “Guardian”. Here is what they mention about Plovdiv:

The second city in Bulgaria claims to be the oldest continuously inhabited center in Europe. The city’s glory days were in Roman times, when there are also a marble amphitheater on the hill in the Old Town and some 200,000 square meters of intricate mosaics in the bishop’s basilica (reopened last year after two decades of restoration).

The old town is home to colorful 19th-century buildings whose larger second floors seem to sway towards each other. Amongst so much antiquity there is plenty of space for modern art. The most influential contemporary gallery is Sariev, a large white cube, whose owner, Katrin Sarieva, developed the Alternative Map of Plovdiv with various free downloadable routes presenting still unknown corners of the city.

In the 19th-century Haji Hassan Mahal, for example, Roma residents still use horse-drawn carts.

The city is built on seven hills: the best view is from the green “Bunardjik”, which also features a huge statue of a Soviet soldier with a machine gun.

Every walker should pass through the beautiful Kapana district. This once abandoned neighborhood is now a pedestrian area with relatively low prices. There are cool craft beer bars, fancy coffee shops, cute souvenir shops and elegant artisan shops.

The English edition also lists the cities of A Coruña, Kaunas, Lyon, Poznan, Trieste, Zagreb, Freiburg, Veille and Dijon.
