If you want to find the DNA of Plovdiv – visit Kapana.

The district is comparable to Roma, Amsterdam, Budapest and every other European city that keeps the spirit of the country itself.

In the past this amazing district was famous for craftsmen industries. It emerged 5 centuries ago and every corner was soaked with history. Nowadays, even the street`s names are keepers of the bygones.

Zhelezarska Str (literal translation:  Iron Str) and Zlatarska Str (literal translation:  Gold Str) are just two of the many streets that make Kapana a place to remember.
