Plovdiv, European Capital of Culture 2019, is my favourite city in Bulgaria. So John, a friend from the UK, and a regular Bansko visitor came to visit me the other weekend. Now was the time for me to show off the delights of what Plovdiv has to offer a fellow wine lover.

Plovdiv is a two-hour drive from Sofia and nearly a three-hour journey from Bansko. The latter being a scenic ride through the spectacular mountain scenery.

Plovdiv is, in my opinion, not only a fun city to visit if you’re in Bulgaria but it makes a welcome variation if you’re after a long weekend break. By combining your trip with Sofia you have a twin-city break.

Both cities offer something different, almost exotic if you’ve familiar with the well worn paths around Paris, Rome, Madrid, Budapest, London etc.
