About Plovdiv city

Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It is said to be a contemporary of Troy and Mycenae, but it is more ancient than Rome, Athens and Constantinople.

Historians do not indicate the exact age of the city. In 1975, remains of a religious building from the period of the Cretan-Mycenaean culture were discovered, which are the same as the discoveries of the island of Kronos.
Plovdiv is famous for its cultural and historical heritage, dating from the time of the Thracians – the oldest population for which written sources have been found on the Balkan Peninsula.

Plovdiv has preserved extremely valuable monuments, of which the most impressive are the Roman stadium, the Ancient Theater, the Odeon, the magnificent flower mosaics, the Aqueduct, the fortress walls, the remains of Thracian settlements.
The ancient names of the city today are connected and interpreted in modern names of tourist sites – hotels, restaurants and others.
It is believed that the earliest name is Kendrisia / Kendros /. It probably originates from the cedar forests, which are written by ancient chroniclers or by the Thracian tribe – kendrisi. The Thracians first create a fortified settlement on the Triangle, which they call Evmolpia or Eumolpeida. The scientists associate the origin with the Thracian hero Evmolpus or the vestals in the temples – the Eubolpians.
