Imagine the actors of the Roman era uttering verses from ancient tragedies at Plovdiv Roman Theatre. Built in the beginning of the second century CE, this is one of the best-preserved antique theaters in the world. Sit on marble seats with a view of a two-story construction called a skene--the actors' dressing room. Look for the excavated inscriptions and statues on the stage, which were incorporated into the building's architecture after its reconstruction. Today, the theater serves the city's contemporary cultural life and seats about 500 people. Stop at the entrance for informational materials. Request a guided tour, if you'd like one, before your visit. Plan your Plovdiv Roman Theatre visit and explore what else you can see and do in Plovdiv using our Plovdiv road trip planner.

プロブディフの街のど真ん中にあるローマ時代の劇場です。 保存状態が非常によく、椅子の背もたれも残っていました。 出入り口は劇場の上の方にあるので坂を上る必要があります。 入口から劇場が見えるので中に入らず外から写真を撮っている人も多かったです。 中は座席の階段がかなり急な部分があり、歩きやすい靴でないと無理なレベルです。 お年寄りはちょっと下まで降りるのは大変かもしれません。 今でも野外劇場がここ... more »It is a Roman theater in the middle of the city of Plovdiv. The storage was very good, and the back of the chair remained. The entrance is on the top of the theater, so you need to climb up the hill. There were a lot of people who took pictures from outside without entering the theater because the entrance was visible. The stairs of the seat are quite steep inside, and it is unreasonable level if it is not a comfortable walking shoes. It may be hard for the elderly to get down a little. It is an active theater that the outdoor theater might be held here even now.
