Plovdiv [BUL]

Greetings my Croatian friends. I'd like to present to you the city of Plovdiv, which some of you may know, and some of you may not...Comparing it to Sofia, it is a lot more touristy place, with well preserved old town, impressive Roman ruins and great restaurants and cafe. It is the second largest town in Bulgaria, with a population of around 340,000. It is also one of the world's oldest continuously populated cities with it's first inhabitants dating as far back as 4000 BC. For a while it was even ruled by Alexander the Great. You can learn more about the history here.

Here come the pics...
