PLEASE NOTE: The currency in Bulgaria is the Lev (I will refer to them as B$s). At the time of writing, US$1 = B$1.74.
We have just spent 1 week in Sunny Beach on the Black Sea Coast of Bulgaria.
We had a small ‘taste’ of Bulgarian history when we visited Nesebar which is located on the southern tip of Sunny Beach.
We are, now, in Plovdiv … the 6th oldest continually inhabited city in the World …
THE PLOVDIV CITY CARD:
You can visit the official website.
Online, the price is discounted down from B$36 to B$33.
Additional ‘red hearts’ show attractions that are free of charge anyway. The ‘blue tags’ are attractions that are not covered by the card.
THE EASTERN GATE OF PHILIPPOPOLIS:
CULTURAL CENTER TRAKART:
GARDEN OF TSAR SIMEON / SINGING FOUNTAINS:
ANCIENT STADIUM OF PHILIPPOPOLIS:
ANCIENT THEATRE OF PHILIPPOPOLIS:
REGIONAL ETHNOGRAPHIC MUSEUM:
SAINT KONSTANTIN & ELENA CHURCH:
HOUSE MUSEUM HINDLIYAN:
HOUSE MUSEUM ZLATYU BOYADJIEV:
I wasn’t overly impressed by some of the House Museums but, having said that, the City Card is definitely worth the price as long as you actually want to visit at least 5 of the places included.
If you start early, you can easily buy the cheaper B$24 City Card and do all of the best sites in 1 day.
