Plovdiv

Though Sofia is Bulgaria's capitol, most people in the country consider Plovdiv, the city with the second highest population, more representative of Bulgaria's culture. It's cleaner, the roads are smoother, and the town has preserved much of its architectural flair from the Bulgarian Revival. On our way back from the Rhodopes on Sunday, Betsy and I stopped off in Plovdiv for a quick tour of the old town. You can see why Bulgarians are so proud.

Plovdiv is a fab city. I have a house near Stara Zagora and me and friends go down to Plovdiv for a day out every now and then and a wander around the streets and antique shops.
