Plovdiv city

Out of all the cities of Bulgaria, Plovdiv is the most impressive, maintains the architectural monuments of the Renaissance, has almost 340.000 inhabitants and its center is the so-called Old City of Plovdiv. The architectural reserve that comprises the “Old City” offers a unique opportunity to wander over a not very large area through different eras, to see old buildings adapted to modern life, and feel the atmosphere of the city during the Renaissance.

From Roman times are the Amphitheater, the Roman Stadium, the Old Forum and the residential house "Eirene". The eastern gate of the fortified wall has been preserved from medieval times.

During the renaissance, Plovdiv was an important economic center. The city was inhabited by many rich and educated people who traveled all over Europe and brought new cultural currents. The wealthy merchants of Plovdiv displayed their wealth by building beautiful houses, richly ornamented, that became an emblem of the Old City. In contrast to the adobe houses of the first stage of the Renaissance, which are small in size, asymmetrical and simply practical, at a later time the focus shifted on splendor and detail. Plovdiv Renaissance houses are symmetrical with large windows and terraces. Particular emphasis is placed on the colorful decoration of the facade with beautiful ornaments, and the interior is complemented by rich sculptures and paintings on the furniture, roofs and stair railings.

Plovdiv has the charm of the old Eastern European cities but is distinguished from them by its houses with decorated facades and curved wooden beams that give its old buildings a unique aesthetic in Europe..

Sofia city

If we want to know the cities of Bulgaria then we must visit its capital, Sofia, a city with a rich history, magnificent architecture, many museums, galleries, theaters, parks, Hotels, restaurants and recreational establishments. It has a population of almost a million and a half inhabitants. Here everyone can find a way to have fun or learn something new and interesting. Most of Sofia's sights are concentrated in the central part of the city. They are within walking distance of each other so no transport is required to get around them.

In Sofia is the largest Sephardic synagogue (spanish jew) of Europe. It is located not far from the mosque and the Catholic cathedral and was built in 1909. Very close to the Museum of Natural History is the Russian church "San Nicolás". This was built between 1907 – 1914 under the project of the Russian architect M. Preobrazhenski, being one of the most beautiful buildings in Sofia for its extraordinary architecture and the golden domes of the temple.

Almost in front of the Christian church of "Santa Sofia" that gives its name to the city, there is the largest Orthodox church in Bulgaria, la catedral “San Alexander Nevsky”. His first stone was laid in 1882 but construction started later, in 1904, and the temple was finished in 1912. The impressive building is a symbol of the city of Sofia.

One of the most beautiful buildings in Sofia, It is the National Theater "Ivan Vazov". It is located in the center of the city. The building was built in 1906, designed by Austrian architects. However, in 1923 during a theatrical presentation a fire started which almost reduced it to ashes. In 1929 the new building was inaugurated, designed this time by a German architect.
