About Plovdiv Ancient Forum

Plovdiv Ancient Forum contains the mostly Roman ruins of Plovdiv. Once known as Philipopolis, its Greek name, Plovdiv has a range of ancient sites.

Much of the structure of Plovdiv Ancient Forum dates to the 1st century AD. It spans an area of 11 hectares and contained the beating heart of the city, with public buildings, shops and markets.

Arguably the highlight of the forum is the restored Odeon, which was initially built between the 2nd and 5th centuries and was once the seat of the ancient city council. Today, this site hosts various events.
