Plovdiv is famous for its hills (called tepes or тепета in Bulgarian). Heights are always a good idea for a picture as long as they provide a panoramic view. In our city, you can get that by climbing to the top of Nebet tape, Sahat tape, Bunarzhik tape, or Dzhendem tepe. If you combine your effort to climb a hill with a dramatic cloudy sky, or a colorful sunset you will get some stunning results.
The garden was supposed to be impressive and breathtaking since it was created in 1892 for the First International Fair in Bulgaria. The swiss gardener Lucien Chewallaz, who before that was the court-gardener of the sultan Abdulaziz, planned it. Today Tsar Simeon’s Garden is a favorite place of the people of Plovdiv with its beautiful flowers, allies and fountains.
Consider going there also at night when you can enjoy the Singing Fountains and make some colorful pictures.
The Old Town of Plovdiv is wonderful and is hiding beautiful yards and amazing Revival Houses behind high walls.
