À propos Marathon Plovdiv

Athens, Rome, Jerusalem – we all know where these cities are. What about a city older than every one of them, the city where the modern European civilization was born? 

With its art galleries, winding cobbled streets and bohemian cafes, Plovdiv (Plov-div) equals Sofia in things cultural and is a determined rival in nightlife as well – it has a lively, exuberant spirit befitting its status as a major university town. Being a smaller and less stressful city than Sofia, Plovdiv is also great for walking and running.
