The Ancient Theater is one of the greatest symbols of Plovdiv, located at one end of the Old Town. You’ll be able to set foot on authentic rock stairs and seats used by local nobles centuries ago. The theater’s stage is still in use today, and in summer you can come across a classical concert, an opera performance or a rock concert.
