Duration: 9 h
Plovdiv is also one of the oldest European towns contemporary to Troya and Mikena. It has been existing as a settlement about 8000 years ago, and became a town 3000 years ago during the Troyan war. It was the capital of Ancient Thrace and a big trade centre in the Middle Ages. In the historic quarter of the city you will see beautifully decorated period houses, the ancient fortress-wall, the Roman forum and stadium and magnificent churches.  From Plovdiv we head towards the Rhodope Mountains passing through the pretty town of Asenovgrad. Nearby we see the remarkable remains of King Ivan Asen’s Fortress – a wise ruler of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom. There we find an ancient church dating from the 13-th century painted with some authentic pieces of iconography. At the top of the fortress we enjoy an awesome 360 degrees panorama all over the Rhodope Mountains, Asenovgrad town, The Thracian Valley and the imposing Balkan Range with its highest Botev Peak in the far distance. After that we will visit also Bachkovo Monastery . The Bachkovo Monastery is the second largest monastery in Bulgaria. The walls inside the buildings are mixture of different times and types of architecture – from Bulgaria, Byzantine to Georgian cultural traditions can be seen in their construction. The Miraculous Icon of the Mother of God “Humility” attracts many pilgrims each year, with many more coming from outside of Bulgaria.
