After breakfast, we'll head to the village of Ustina, where we'll be able to see one impressive and a great example of a winery. We'll take a look at the winery and it's vineyards, after which we'll have lunch and have a degustation of some of the winery's finest selections. After lunch – a transfer to Plovdiv – one of the oldest European towns & a variety of archeological memorials from Thracian, Romanian and Medieval times. There is plenty to see in its vibrant and attractive center:
Architectural complex “Old Plovdiv”
— The Etnographical museum – exhibiting fine example traditional artifacts and spiritual culture of the people of Plovdiv region. The house itself is probably the most beautiful house in Plovdiv – Bulgarian Baroque architecture from the 1847.
— The Roman theatre – one of the best preserved in Europe, from the 2nd AD.
— Mosque “Djumaia Djamia" – one of the three examples of the oldest type of Ottoman worship buildings still preserved on the Balkan Peninsula.
— Roman stadium - some archeologists think that here were leaded games from the Septimus Severus time (193 – 211). The flashiest competitions were the Alexandrian games, which were just like the Greek Olympic games.
If there's enough time we can do a visit to the Bachkovo monastery – second largest monastery in Bulgaria. Transfer back to Sofia.
