About Plovdiv Roman Stadium

Plovdiv Roman Stadium was an ancient sports arena built in the 2nd century AD. At its peak, Plovdiv Roman Stadium had a capacity of some 30,000 spectators and, though little remains today, there is an ongoing renovation project in place.

The main surviving remnants are an area of seating and track as well as the northern entrance. Various sports would have been played there as well as gladiatorial matches.
