Stara Zagora is an old city, situated at the foot of the Sredna Gora Mountain. It is located in South Bulgaria, in the Upper Thracian Valley, at the crossroads of the routes from Plovdiv to the Black Sea and from the Danube to the Aegean. The Stara Zagora region has one of the best climates in Bulgaria because of the southern location and because the Balkan Mountains serve as barrier for the winds from North, although snow still covers the mountains and long, hot summers.
The city is one of the oldest in Europe with two Neolitich dwellings dating back to the 6th century B.C and it was also an important Roman town founded in the 2nd century A.D. Much Roman architecture still remains from the amphitheatre, large mosiacs and other ruins. In 1364 the city was conquered by the Ottoman rule and during the fighting for liberation from the Turks, it was the scene of a major battle which resulted in the entire city being burnt to the ground and thousands killed. The city was then rebuilt on a grid structure and so practically every street except one is in a straight line and makes finding your way around fairly easy.
Thanks to the delicious local foods, many tourists discover this hidden gem and come back frequently. The mix of smells, sights, and sounds blend magically with a huge array of activities causing Stara Zagora to be one of Bulgaria's most interesting destinations.
