Unique Neighborhoods in Europe

The uniqueness of Plovdiv is hidden in its mixture of cultures, architecture styles and layers of amazing history. In our town, you just need to walk for a few minutes to enter a different neighborhood with its own story and looks. Such examples are the Old Town, The Tobacco town, The area around the Pedestrian street, the neighborhoods around the hills and our favorite – Kapana district. Of course, we guarantee you will find one common thing between all these places – the bohemian relaxed soul of Plovdiv.

Arts & Crafts Tour of Plovdiv

Plovdiv has many faces – the green hills on a sunny day, the cobbled streets on a rainy afternoon, the narrow snowy alleys during wintertime. You just need one minute of walking and in front of you there will be a completely new sight – different than the previous one. In one word – Plovdiv is art. And the Arts and Crafts Tour is here to show you one of the most artistic faces of our town. What is Kapana? The Arts and Crafts Tour is happening in the Kapana district. Do you know what Kapan means? Kapana means “the trap” – and yes – this is where nowadays a lot of people fall for the night life and believe that the name Trap is thanks to the persuasive clubs.

They all make this place more colourful and cozy. History and Crafts […]
