How did Plovdiv win this distinction? Simply put, it is due to Bulgaria is one of the rapid growing tourist destinations in Europe.

 
Bulgaria’s second-largest city, Plovdiv is one of the ancient continually inhabited cities in Europe, set up around the 6th century BC.

 
In modern context, it’s a vibrant city. It serves as the administrative, academic, economic, commercial and transportation centre of the south-central region of Bulgaria.

 
“The city of Plovdiv has two main goals,” says Deputy Mayor Stefan Stoyanov. “To be much more popular and attractive, especially to the European audience and to make the city more visible. On the other hand, we want to double the number of tourists. We expect to have around two million visitors in 2019.

 
“We have great events. Music festivals, an opera festival. Plovdiv is one of the hot spots that someone can visit. It’s not too crowdy but, on the other hand, the city has half a million people. It’s a very dynamic city.”

 
In Plovdiv, the old town is a must-see. You can walk in and around and have a high regard for the wonderful houses which date back to the Renaissance period.

 
Nowadays, one of these houses organizes the Ethnographical Museum of the city.

 
The old town of Plovdiv has been on the UNESCO World Heritage tentative list since 2004.

 
Tour guide Rumyana Titeryakova says: “Plovdiv is a unique city. It has a long history, an amazing culture and a very beautiful old town. It also has many nice restaurants and very good sports facilities. It’s an old city with a young spirit.”
