What objects are included in the Plovdiv Audio Guide Tour?

We have collaborated the most interesting, sometimes little known sites and a wide range of information about the magnificent historical, cultural and architectural sights of Plovdiv City. Show you:

Roman Stadium

The ancient stadium of Philippopolis (as Plovdiv used to be called) is located under the main pedestrian street of the city. Its northern part is exhibited at the Roman Stadium Square. The rest is hidden in the basements of modern buildings. It was built at the beginning of the 2nd century under the rule of Emperor Hadrian on the model of the stadium at Delphi. There are only twelve such structures left in the world. Plovdiv is one of the brightest.

Ancient Theater

The Ancient Roman Theater in Plovdiv is one of the best preserved in Europe. It was uncovered during archaeological excavations between two of the three hills of old Plovdiv - Jambaz Tepe and Taksim Tepe. It took ten years to clear the Theater from the 11-meters of earth and to save it from destruction. One of the two largest European amphitheaters after the Roman one was opened in Sofia. Now 1/6 of the Colosseum has been discovered.

Hisar Kapiya

If you want to capture the memorable views of ancient Plovdiv, this is probably the right place. A corner of the city's history miraculously preserved here and is a great place for photographs.
The cobble stone winding street, sandwiched on both sides by the fortress walls, as well as the surviving Hisar Kapiya fortress gates seem to make us participants. Immersing us in that ancient era and making us feel the atmosphere of the events of those bygone years.

Great Basilica

The Great Bishop’s Basilica is one of the most significant objects on the territory of Bulgaria.
According to experts, the Basilica has no analogues in southeastern Europe. The coin of the Emperor Licinius discovered during the excavations and the preserved mosaic inscription in Greek gave reason to say so. It turned out that this is one of the first churches in the Roman Empire, built in the 4th century to perform the sacrament of baptism after the adoption of Christianity in 313.

Audio-guided tours of Plovdiv are available in all seasons, 365 days a year. Choose a time convenient for you and come to discover the secrets of Old Plovdiv!

2. Archaeological finds of the eastern sector of the Philippopolis Antique Stadium, located in the building of the Star Gallery shopping center (H&M store on the main pedestrian street of Plovdiv, Knyaz Alexander I street, 11).
