Forgive me, we have seen a lot of ruins. This one was nice but there is so much going on here as it is still used for concerts that it is hard to see in it's virgin form. There was a team outing up speakers...More

It was constructed in the 90s of the 1st century AD, probably under the rulership of Emperor Domitian. The theatre can host between 5000 and 7000 spectators and it is currently in use. Stephanie

Each cultural event acquires a different spirit in this eternal place. Unique place in Bulgaria without of analogy.

Built long ago by the Romans but modified to be a modern outdoor theatre. Super cool! You sit on the seats built so long ago (on cushions). The stairs are steep but great site lines.

The Old Roman Theatre is very attractive and has been preserved for all to enjoy. The location overlooks the Town and is surrounded by restaurants in the old quarter.

This ruin is in the heart of Plovdiv's old town. If you join one of the free Plovdiv walking tours, this will be one of the stops. We were not able to go into the theater but did get a good look at it from...More

I used Dinars in Serbia. I have not been to Romania; only saw it across the Danube river.
