Photographer's Note

Plovdiv is the second largest town in Bulgaria, placed in the middle of the map. Perhaps not as famous as Sofia, Rila or Burgas, but it has one of the most beautiful monuments of the country: The Roman theatre.

It was built in the beginning of the 2nd century during the reign of Trajan. It is situated in the natural saddle between the Dzhambaz Tepe and Taksim Tepe hills. It is divided into two parts with 14 rows each divided with a horizontal lane. The theatre could accommodate up to 7,000 people.The three-story scene is located on the southern part and is decorated with friezes, cornices and statues.
