 DESCRIPTION OF TOWN

- SHORT HISTORY AND LOCATION

IF THERE IS A CITY IN THE WORLD THAT HAS TURNED INTO A TEMPLE OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION, THIS IS PLOVDIV. EPOCHS, ETHNIC

COMMUNITIES AND RELIGIONS COEXIST IN A REMARKABLE WAY IN IT.   A THRACIAN AND HELLENIC POLICE, THE PRIDE OF PHILIP OF

MACEDONIA, WHOSE NAME IT TAKES, A SEAT OF ROMAN LEGIONS, A SPIRITUAL SUPPORT OF BYZANTINISM, LATER A CITADEL OF THE

BULGARIANS TO THE SOUTH OF THE BALKANS, A DREAM OF THE CRUSADE KNIGHTS, A LINK BETWEEN THE EAST AND THE WEST,

PLOVDIV IS AN ETERNAL TOWN. THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE TOWN ON THE SEVEN HILLS BY THE ANCIENT MARITSA RIVER WERE LAID

EIGHT THOUSAND YEARS AGO.    PLOVDIV IS OLDER THAN ROME, ATHENS AND CONSTANTINOPLE, OF THE SAME AGE AS TROY AND

MYCENAE. THE GRANDEUR OF THE TOWN LIES NOT ONLY IN ITS PREHISTORY BUT IN ITS LIFE. UNLIKE ITS COEVALS, PLOVDIV HAS

MANAGED TO PRESERVE ITSELF AND THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE INHABITED IT.   THE TOWN HAS EXPERIENCED FIRE AND DESTRUCTION,

GLORY AND EARTHQUAKES, WARS AND BETRAYAL, BUT HAS ALWAYS RISEN FROM THE ASHES OF DEFEAT FLYING OFF TO THE FUTURE.

NOWADAYS IT IS A SPIRITUAL CAPITAL OF BULGARIA WITH LONGSTANDING TRADITIONS, VALUABLE ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS AND

HISTORICAL HERITAGE, COEXISTING IN HARMONY WITH CONTEMPORARY CULTURE.

THE SECOND LARGEST CITY IN   BULGARIA, A MAJOR COMMERCIAL, SCIENTIFIC AND TRANSPORTATION CENTRE, PLOVDIV IS SITUATED

IN THE GEOGRAPHIC CENTRE OF BULGARIA, IN THE UPPER THRACIAN LOWLAND. THE KEY LOCATION ENSURES VERY GOOD TRANSPORT

LINKS TO ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AND EUROPE .NOT FAR AWAY FROM PLOVDIV ARE THE BEAUTIFUL PHODOPES MOUNTAINS.
