I decided that I couldn’t just spend one day in Bulgaria and be done with it, so I headed to Plovdiv. Plovdiv is the second largest city in Bulgaria but it feels much smaller. I originally only booked two nights in the this town and ended up staying for five nights! I stayed at this great hostel called The Crib and was cooked a traditional breakfast every morning! That may have been another reason that I extended my stay. I went on another free walking tour and actually learned a lot about the city.
This stadium actually runs underneath the main pedestrian street and is 240 meters long. It was said to be able to seat up to 30,000 people. It has nothing on USC!
The theater still hosts concerts and weddings today but for a hefty price.
This statue sits outside of a building where he was having an affair with one of the local ladies. His hand is strategically placed because the affair was not really a secret. 🙂
