You can't miss the clock tower in Plovdiv, as it sits on a hill looking over the city. The walk there is probably the best bit about it, as it takes you up through the gorgeous parks that grace the hill, finally arriving at the foot of this odd clock. It still works, but the story goes that there is only one person in all of Bulgaria that knows how to keep it running, and he's not getting any younger! Whether you're interested in its history or not, the views are great and it's well worth the effort.

Whilst the tower itself is nothing to be admired, from here you get excellent views looking out over the city and is the best place to get a decent view with the amphitheatre in the background. The locals flock here at sunset with a few beers for company and the benches are seemingly the preferred place for young teenagers to ‘make out.’ The tower is easily accessed via the Tsar Simeon’s Garden, where it’s just a short ten minute walk uphill.
