I was in Bulgaria for an event over the last few days. As usual the event was held in Sofia, but this time round our host organised a day trip to the city of Plovdiv.
The city is built on the remains of its past, which includes both a relatively well preserved Roman theatre and a rather large stadium, which has been masked by the modern city.
While you can only get to see small bit of the stadium it still covers a very large area in the city's downtown shopping area
The day we were there the weather was pretty miserable so we didn't get a chance to see all the ruins nor did I get a chance to visit any of the city's museums, but I did get a nice taste for the history..
