Plovdiv, in southern Bulgaria, is the country’s second-largest city. The city is split into two uneven parts by the Maritza River. The two sides are connected by six bridges.
The city sits in between seven hills and has temperatures ranging from -3°C in the winter to 30°C in the summer. Temperatures during May to September range from 26°C to 30°C making the summer the ideal time to visit.
The city traces its ancestry to the Stone Age and has been occupied by the Macedonians and the Romans. It was then destroyed by invaders, and only after the fall of the Ottoman Empire did it regain its importance as a cultural and economic centre.
Modern Plovdiv is a commercial city with a thriving economy and a population of 350,000 that is growing rapidly every year.
