Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city and one of its oldest towns, is a two-hour drive from Sofia. You will discover the history and culture of a 7000-year-old settlement written by the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Bulgarian civilizations within 2-3 hours of walking through the city. You can explore the Old Town with its museums, historical monuments, revival period houses, cobbled streets lined with souvenir shops, or be impressed by the rich Ethnographical Museum and the ancient Roman Theater. Enjoy a lunch at one of the local restaurants while taking in the atmosphere of this artistic and commercial center.
The charming town of Koprivshtitsa, with its fascinating history and authentic 19th-century architecture, is the next stop on your way back. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in this small and picturesque city in central Bulgaria, nestled among the slopes of the Sredna Gora Mountains, which exudes a sense of tranquillity and eternity. Once a battleground for Bulgaria’s liberation, the city has been transformed into a museum of Bulgaria’s Revival Period. Visit the homes of some of Bulgaria’s most illustrious citizens, writers, and rebels, and marvel at vast collections of ethnographic treasures such as ancient weapons, intricate national costumes, and stunning jewelry.
