Things to do Plovdiv & Koprivshtitsa - Private day trip

In the beginning, the ancient settlement was situated on the natural elevation between Nebet, Taksim and Dzhambaz hills (the Three Hills). In ancient times Thracians inhabited the Three Hills and built a fortified settlement – the largest city in Thrace. In the 4th century BC Plovdiv was conquered by Phillip of Macedonia. He gave the city one of its many names – Philippopolis and had it surrounded by thick fortified walls. Later it became a Roman province and an important regional centre. The town hosts the Roman theatre, which was successfully restored and it is presently used for different performances, concerts and events.
