The Monument of Philip II

Attraction type: Monuments
Address: 36-A "Philip Makedonski" Str., Plovdiv

Philip II the Macedon conquested the Trakian City Evmolpia and gave it its name – Philippopolis (Nowadays Plovdiv). Interesting fact is that Plovdiv has 7 different names in different epochs. The monument is a gift from Thessaloniki Embassy. In the beginning they put it at Djumaya square but now it’s removed at the corner of Avksenti Veleshki street and Philip the Macedoia str.
