It was great to discover all the history that we can find in Plovdiv. The Roman theater was a good example. I truly recommend it to history lovers.

So we paid the entry ticket, but it was below average. No information panels anywhere, the theatre was dirty... luckily the price is acceptable, but I was expecting more.
