Commenting article: Plovdiv Amphitheatre: Trajan Wonder at Bulgaria's Heart

Ok, I have, over recent months given you a brief seaside excursion, so it is about time to get off the sun lounger and head back inland to see another of Bulgaria's historical wonders.

This place for once is easily accessed - the Roman Amphitheatre in Plovdiv. The amphitheatre was only found in the early 1970's due to a landslide, this led to a major archeological excavation, including the removal of 15 feet of earth covering what was left hidden by the landslide.

There was found to be damage to parts of the amphitheatre where Atilla the Hun attacked Plovdiv around the 5th century AD but in general it is a magnificent structure that has stood the test of time.
