PlovdivPlovdiv area is one of the most significant regions in Bulgaria with its economic potential as well as with its rich cultural and historical heritage and the constructed infrastructure. The district covers a part central south Bulgaria, comprising the most luxuriant land of the Tracian valley, the slopes of the Balkan Mountains and the Rhodopes. The central location of the district and paticularly of the city of Plovdiv predetermines the role of a cross road of an important commercial center with international significance. The international railroad Belgrade - Sofia - Plovdiv - Istanbul and the international highway E- 80, named Trace, which extends to Burgas and to the Black sea, and the future highway, which will be named Maritsa and will extend to the Greek and the Turkish borders, run across the town. Plovdiv is the only city in Bulgaria with a working Ancient amphitheatre, dating from the second century, and soon it will be one of the few cities in Europe with two working amphitheatres. The Odeon theatre is being renovated at the present moment. Lucian the Greek called Plovdiv "the biggest and most beautiful of all towns" in Thrace. He might have added "and Bulgaria", for the country`s second-largest city /with a population of 360 000/ is one of its most attractive and vibrant centres, with arguably more to recommend it than Sofia, which the proud locals tend to regards whit some disdain. Certainly, there`s plenty to see. The Old town embodies Plovdiv`s long and varied history - Thracian fortifications utilized by Macedonian masons, overlaid whit Byzantine walls, and by great timber-framed mansions erected during the Bulgarian renaissance, looking down on the Ottoman mosques and artisans` dwellings of the lower town. But Plovdiv isn`t merely a parade of antiquities. The city`s arts festivals and trade fairs rival Sofia`s in number, and its restaurants and promenade compare very favourably with those of the capital. The extremely well constructed infrastructure of the district, the central location, the presence of free and highly qualified labour forces, free terrains at appropriate prices around Plovdiv and other bigger towns, the real chances to participate in the privatization - all this.
