Plovdiv Roman Theatre also known as the Ancient theatre of Philippopolis is a historical structure in the center of the city of Plovdiv. This magnificent 2nd century amphitheater, built during the reign of Emperor Trajan, has undergone restoration after the landslide in 1972. The theatre is in form of a semi-circle with an outer diameter of 82 meters. The open spectators’ area consists of 28 concentric rows, divided into 2 tiers by an aisle. There are several inscriptions on the structure, which show that the building was used as the seat of the Thracian provincial assembly. The Plovdiv Roman Theatre is now considered to be Bulgaria’s most magical venues, and can be admired for free from several lookouts along UlHemus. Highlights and must sees include:
