Knyaz Aleksandar 1st Street

Address: "Knyaz Aleksandar 1st" Str., Plovdiv

Knyaz Aleksandar is the main pedestrian street in Plovdiv. It’s the city’s busiest spot in the summertime as countless young, fashion-concious Bulgarians stroll up and down the length of the street, popping in and out of the various shops, clothing boutiques, restaurants, and cafes (both of the internet and espresso varieties).

Knyaz Aleksandar Street remains above the remnants of a giant stadium built by Philip of Macedonia about 2300 years ago. The scant remains of the once grand structure sit on one end of the street, while above ground, fine Baroque buildings loom above the pedestrians.
