A Quick Walking Tour in Plovdiv

Probably Plovdiv is the second best tourist city in Bulgaria apart from their capital city Sofia. This city is best known with their traditional Bulgarian architecture which I like most! These old buildings are so colourful and beautiful. The whole street was full of these little houses. Many of them are now used as museums or art galleries. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to get it and see what's inside because none of them was open on Monday... It's sad but true.

The little box on the right was called a "Gossips Room". I guess I could manage to be a good "gossip girl" if I lived in that century and I assume I could make money for that. What a fun job!

If you have seen enough old buildings, perhaps you could check this park out. There was seven hills in Plovdiv when the ancient town was founded. And Nebet Tepe is one of them. From here, you could see lots of ancient historical sites, and also the view of Plovdiv from top! 

Have you ever seen a half of the Ancient Theatre? This was my first time to see one. It wasn't because it had been damaged but was built like this. And this historical site is now open for performance and event uses. 

It's time to talk about food after all the visits. I randomly chose a restaurant on Google maps which has relatively high rating and a lot of reviews. That's why I gave it a try. To be honest, I found their food quite salty which I don't really fancy about. I would say the soup was the best amongst the other two dishes. However, the service, the atmosphere and the prices were good and reasonable. So I would say it's so-so overall. Hemingway Restaurant | 10, 4000 Tsentar, Plovdiv, Bulgaria ★★★☆☆

Oh It's time to get back to Sofia! Bye Plovdiv! Hope to see you again!
