Absolutely beautiful - both the theater itself and the views of Plovdiv. And I love that it is still used. We got to watch a musical rehearsal while we wondered around the site.

This ancient theatre is without a doubt the city’s premier attraction and is arguably one of the best preserved amphitheatres in Europe. Construction of the theatre ended at the start of the second century, at a time when the city was then known as Philippopolis. For just a small fee you get the opportunity to explore the amphitheatre, which also has lovely views looking out over the city. An absolute must when visiting Plovdiv.

Plovdiv's ancient theater is the city's best preserved architectural ruin. It was originally built by the Emperor Trajan during the early 2nd Century (the golden age of the Five Good Emperors). It sits atop a hill overlooking downtown and the mountains in the distance. The marble steps are perfectly preserved. The stage and the structure of columns behind it are in such good shape that the theater is still in use today. When I was there, an American church was actually rehearsing for an upcoming performance.

El lugar histórico mas importante de Plovdiv y una de las maravillas que quedan en pie de la época romana en el mundo. Construido en el siglo I, hoy en día una gran parte del antiguo teatro se mantiene en pie con sus reconstrucciones parciales. Es una verdadera obra de arte, sobre todo por lo bien conservado que se encuentra. Aquí se realizan en la actualidad gran cantidad de eventos culturales de la ciudad, desde conciertos a operas. La entrada es muy barata solo 5 levas (2,50 euros).

Cómo puede ser que esta maravilla estuvo bajo tierra todo este tiempo. Es que recién para los años '80 del siglo pasado se descubrió este imponente anfiteatro del siglo I. ¡Casi 2000 años tuvieron que pasar!

Hoy en día se sigue utilizando para representaciónes teatrales, ópera y festivales culturales. Cuando nosotros lo visitamos lo estaban acondicionando para un evento.

La entrada cuesta 5 levas.
