  • Very small part can be visited as the rest is still under the city. For that part there is almost no information available on site. It looks like they try to sell 3D cinema tickets. The building was impressive, apparently. Elevator for baby strollers not working, no sign, no apology.
  • Amazing to walk along the pedestrían zone to then find a massive man-made hole in the ground, which opens up to the stadium. Plovdiv is one of the oldest settlements in the world, hence historic buildings can easily be found anywhere in the city. However, what makes the stadium so different is, that it has been excavated internally, so that you can walk or sit inside the stadium, whilst one level up around it, the city remained untouched. It appears a bit like a stage located inside a crater.
