Plovdiv is the first Bulgarian city chosen to be European Capital of Culture, and in 2019 it will celebrate this most prestigious cultural initiative of the European Union. The programme for 2019 includes various activities and events related to the typical features of the city, the communities that inhabit it, its cultural heritage, history, pace of life and its overcoming of problems and stereotyping. See all the highlights arranged chronologically: https://plovdiv2019.eu/en Plovdiv’s Old Town is like the set of a period movie. This ancient and eternal city, as the locals refer to it, charms with its cobblestone streets and colourful old houses, seemingly still inhabited by their original owners. In fact, many of the National Revival period houses in the Old Town are now museums. If you have to choose among them, Balabanov’s House, the Ethnographic Museum and the History Museum are among the most spectacular. You will be charmed by the street artists and musicians, the small antique shops and galleries. And the beating heart of the city — the second century AD Roman Theatre — is not only one of the best preserved landmarks of its kind in the world, but also the home of opera and theatre spectacles, modern and classical concerts, as well as jazz festivals. Last but not least, Plovdiv is a proud host of Bulgaria’s annual architecture, design and dance festivals.
