Create an itinerary including Plovdiv Roman Theatre
Imagine the actors of the Roman era uttering verses from ancient tragedies at Plovdiv Roman Theatre. Built in the beginning of the second century CE, this is one of the best-preserved antique theaters in the world. Sit on marble seats with a view of a two-story construction called a skene--the actors' dressing room. Look for the excavated inscriptions and statues on the stage, which were incorporated into the building's architecture after its reconstruction. Today, the theater serves the city's contemporary cultural life and seats about 500 people. Stop at the entrance for informational materials. Request a guided tour, if you'd like one, before your visit. Plan your Plovdiv Roman Theatre visit and explore what else you can see and do in Plovdiv using our Plovdiv road trip planner.

  • Not much to say, visit it and feel the atmosphere of once powerful Roman empire. Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities in Europe and this is just part of it.
