The Antique Theatre is one of the most famous sights in Plovdiv. It is one of the best preserved examples of an ancient theatre in the world and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004.
Plovdid is one of the oldest towns in Europe, dating back 8,000 years. The theatre was built in 2BC during the reign of King Traqn.
The theatre is part of the architecture preserve "Old Plovdiv" and is one of the most significant social buildings for that time. It is significant due to its location, architecture and size ( 3000 audience capacity).
The Antique Theatre was found during archaeology excavations between 1968-79.
Today it is a place where concerts and festivals are organized during the summers.
The church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary" was built in 1817 on the site of an earlier church that had been destroyed by the Kurdzhalies at the end of the 18th century. A local story tells us that the builders from Smolsko and Mirkovo built the church in just 11 days. It contains many precious works of art including the Iconostasis /1821/ and the other icons made by Renaissance painters during the period of 1837 to 1838.

Kashtata na Todor Kableshkov
Todor Kableshkov was a 19th Century revolutionary leader and one of the leaders of Bulgaria's April Uprising against the Ottoman rulers. His family home is in Koprivshtitsa and is now open to the public as a museum. The house was built by a local master-builder/architect called Gencho Mladenov in 1845 - just a few years before Kableshkov's birth. His family were wealthy and the house reflects that with a grand facade and exquisitely decorated interior. The museum includes an exhibition on his revolutionary activities.
The museum is open from 9:30 - 17:30 every day except Monday.
