The Old Town of Plovdiv is a place where you can see numerous Old Houses, stop for a coffee or just enjoy the view from hill, visit an ancient roman theatre, etc.
There are many churches that worth to be visited but also many of the restored old houses have been turned into restaurants, workshops or museums (art galleries, ethnographic museum, renaissance museum of national struggle, etc).
Most of the old houses were built in Bulgarian Revival style during the 19th century from rich merchants but the expensive restoration left them in decay for many years so it’s no surprise many of them were turned into museums after the 70s. Most of them have colorful facades, stylish patterns, heavy wooden doors, numerous interesting windows that will please every photographer and some of them some lovely small gardens full of flowers. The houses although simple from outside they have luxurious interiors. They are named after the original owner, usually there is a sign on the front door, the most important houses are pointed on the free map that we got from the Tourist Information.
