The Old Town
You don’t need a map to explore the Old Town. Located close to the pedestrian zone of the city center and comprising several cobblestone streets, it’s the perfect place to get lost. Some of the houses were turned into museums, carefully preserving stories from the past. Others are still inhabited or are home to restaurants and boutique hotels. Walk under Hissar Kapiya (The Hissar Gate) to discover the more quiet part of the Old Town where life goes on without taking notice of the tourists. Or climb up the hill to get one of the best views of Plovdiv – the best time to do it is at sunset when the panorama is magical.
