Not todays Stara Zagora but Augusta Trayana in the 2nd century!



Quote:
In the turn of the II century A.D. during the rule of the Roman Emperor Trayan (98-117 AD) laid over the foundations of the big Roman town of Augusta Trayana. The area and the significance of Augusta Trayana rivalled those of the biggest Roman cities in the Trakia and Mizia provinces at that time. According to the prominent Roman historian from the 4th century A.D. Amian Marcelin, Beroe (i.e. Augusta Trayana), together with Philipopoulis, “beautified” the Trakia province; whereas the native people used to call it “the most fascinating town”.

History, City of Stara Zagora


The most ancient traces of human activity in the region of Stara Zagora date back between the VII and VI millennia B.C. Exactly at that time (the beginning of the new stone age) four pre-historic villages were built up, with territory covering as much of the territory of the town of Stara Zagora and the surrounding area today. For almost six thousand years one of those villages remained the biggest within the boundaries of the existing provinces. Some scientists believe that the ancient Thracian village of Beroe was originally located there. The village of Beroe was founded in the IV century B.C. by Philip of Macedonia.

In the turn of the II century A.D. during the rule of the Roman Emperor Trayan (98-117 AD) laid over the foundations of the big Roman town of Augusta Trayana. The area and the significance of Augusta Trayana rivalled those of the biggest Roman cities in the Trakia and Mizia provinces at that time. According to the prominent Roman historian from the 4th century A.D. Amian Marcelin, Beroe (i.e. Augusta Trayana), together with Philipopoulis, “beautified” the Trakia province; whereas the native people used to call it “the most fascinating town”.


Between the II and IV century A.D. a broad range of “trans-border” activities from the people of Augusta Trayana was under way. Sparta (Greece), Akvinkum (Budapest), Syria, etc. were among those to have had trade contacts with the Thracian town.

In mid-IV century A.D. the town became one of the most active venues of early Christianity on the Balkan Peninsula.

In ancient times, the town of Augusta Trayana was visited by the Roman Emperors Septimius Sever (193-211 AD), Karakala ((211-217 AD), Diocletian (293-306 A.D.) and others. Those events evidenced the significance that the town held as an administrative, strategic, military and geopolitical center in the region.

Accompanied by her suite in 784 A.D. the town of Augusta Trayana was also visited by the Byzantine Empress Irina. She came to regard the town as a highly important military and strategic center and invested special care and labour into improving the town’s fortification facilities. The town then was renamed after her - Irinopolis (the town of Irina).

During the Ottoman dominance Stara Zagora (Eski Zagra, Eski Zaara) is an administrative district.

On July 19, 1877, during the Russo-Turkish War, the front army troops of General Gurko took over Stara Zagora., but soon his army and its joint Bulgarian volunteer soldiers were confronted by the huge army of the Turkish Suleiman Pasha. The Russian soldiers were forced to retreat and surrender the town. Stara Zagora was then burnt down and massacred. Over 5,000 people were killed. The town was eventually liberated on Jan. 1, 1878.

After its liberation, Stara Zagora became the main town in a department in East Rumelia province. The town was rebuilt, while the new street planning featured a predominance of straight streets crossing each other in a perpendicular fashion. The new plan was worked out in 1879 by the Czech urban planner Lubor Bayer.


In 1884, Stara Zagora numbered 15,258 people and was the third biggest in the East Rumelia province, trailing only behind the towns of Plovdiv and Sliven.

By the end of WWII the town economy was predominantly food and agriculture -processing. The most important sectors of the Stara Zagora economy today are: machine building and metal-processing; electronics and electro-engineering industry; food-processing; chemical industry and the production of artificial fertilizers. The town economy also includes the production and processing of sunflower oil, grain silo, flour and macaroni products, world-famous beer brand “Zagorka”, tobacco products, wood furniture, textile, etc. By 1992 the town’s population reached 150,482, being the sixth biggest in the country, trailing behind Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas, and Ruse.

On June 27, 1996, The Thracian University was established in Stara Zagora, bringing together the two then existing higher-education institutes in town: The Higher Institute of Medicine and The Higher Institute of Zootechnics and Veterinary Medicine. The new academic institution quickly started to make name as a complex academic and R&D center in the field of medicine, veterinary medicine, livestock-breeding, and teacher qualification and skill training.

Antique Forum of Augusta Trayana





Much of the antique city of Augusta Trayana can be seen in the very centre of Stara Zagora (just behind the Palace of Justice and the Old Theatre) including the forum of the antique city with the remains of an amphitheatre, thermal baths, city walls, the western gate and part of the main trading street.


The antique city forum is located in the southwest part of the ancient city, right next to the city fortress walls and the western gate. The uncovered part has an area a little less than an hectare. In ancient times, the stone square was covered with well-worked stone plates, but today, only the pedestal (where the emperor's equestrian statue had been placed) is preserved in its centre. Nine rows of stone seats, situated in tiers, face the square. The theatre, where performance can still be seen today, can accommodate 1300 seated spectators. This unique piece of the antique architecture is believed to have been built no later than the 3rd century. The city baths facade, which had more than ten spacious halls, was uncovered behind it.


The main antique street starting from the western gate continued in an eastern direction. It was 6 meters wide and covered with massive stone plates. The foundations of a number of trade and business buildings have been discovered alongside it.

History of the names of Stara Zagora




Stara Zagora is a city with an eight thousand-year history. The favourable geographic and climatic conditions of the territory around Stara Zagora contributed to the establishment of several prehistoric settlements in the remote past. More than 100 prehistoric mounds from the 6th to 3rd millennium BC were found in the vicinity of Stara Zagora. One of them, the Bereketska mound, is the largest in Bulgaria, containing traces of people that lived there from the New Stone Age (6th millennium BC) to the Middle Ages (12th century). A prehistoric settlement can be found within the city itself. Two dwellings from the New Stone Age are preserved in the Neolithic Dwellings Museum. These are the best preserved dwellings from the New Stone or Neolithic Age (6th millennium BC) in Europe and contain a rich collection of tools and artefacts. The oldest copper mines in Europe (5th millennium BC) were found 8 km east of the city, A considerable amount of copper ore was extracted from the 11 mines by the ancient inhabitants of this land who traded with it throughout the continent.

The city of Stara Zagora is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Located at the cross-roads of multiple civilizations, Stara Zagora is an important piece in the European cultural routes mosaic. Inhabited by Thracians, ancient Greeks, Romans, Slavs, Ottomans and Bulgarians, this unique city bears the historical imprint of those past civilizations along with many of their historical treasures. Proof of its longevity can be found in the multiples names of the city, each one connected with a different era of its development.




Augusta Traiana

Founded around 106 AD by the Emperor Marcus Ulpius Traianus (98-117 AD), Augusta Traiana, "the most flamboyant city of the Traians" was the second largest city in the Roman province of Thrace during 2nd - 3rd c. AD, after Philipopolis. It occupied an area of 38 hectares and was fortified by strong fortress walls.

Augusta Traiana had the statute of an autonomous city of the ‘polis' type (i.e. city-state). From the time of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD) to the Emperor Galienus (253-268 AD) it had the right to mint its own bronze coins, which were in circulation all over the Balkan Peninsula.


Beroe

Between 4th and 7th centuries the city had the name of Beroe. It was a religious centre of the early Christians on these lands and the residence of an archbischop.


Irinopolis

For a short period it was named after the Byzantine Empress Irina who visited the city in 784 AD.


Vereya

In 812 AD the city became part of the First Bulgarian State under the name of Vereya.


Boruy

During the Second Bulgarian State (12th through 14th centuries) the city had the name of Boruy. It became the centre of an administrative region within Medieval Bulgaria. Some of the most remarkable Medieval stone plastic arts date back from this period - five bareliefs featuring animals. One of them, a lioness with its cub, became the symbol of Stara Zagora.


Eski Zagra

In 1364 the medieval city was captured by the Turks who called it Eski (Hissar) Zagra (the Old fortress Zagora). During the Bulgarian Revival it evolved into an important centre of crafts and trade.


Zheleznik

At the end of the 1850s, the Turkish name was replaced by the Bulgarian name Zheleznik.


Stara Zagora


The city's current name, Stara Zagora, appeared for the first time in documents from the Church Council of Tsarigrad in 1875.

July 31st, 1877 is a tragic date in the city's history. On that day, the first major clash between the two belligerent armies of the Russian-Turkish Liberation War took place near Stara Zagora. The large Turkish army consisting of several thousand soldiers was launched on the town, which was merely defended by a small Russian detachment and a small unit of Bulgarian volunteers. After a six-hour fight for Stara Zagora, the Russian soldiers and Bulgarian volunteers surrendered to the pressure of the larger enemy army. The town then soon experienced its greatest tragedy. It was burned down and razed to the ground during the three days following the battle. The only public building surviving the fire was the mosque, Eski Dzhamiya. The number of the causalities from Stara Zagora and its neighboring villages reached 14,500. While the people of Bulgaria lost this particular battle for Stara Zagora, they did ultimately win the war. Today, several monuments witness the gratitude of the Bulgarian people to its liberators.

October 5th, 1879. Stara Zagora's restoration from the destruction began immediately after the liberation of Bulgaria. The first symbolic foundation stone was laid on October 5th, 1879 by prince Aleko Bogoridi. The city was rebuilt on plans designed by the Czech architect Lyubor Bayer, and became the first modern-looking Bulgarian city after the Liberation with its large straight streets and spacious squares.
