While Plovdiv is best known for its ancient Roman theatre, there’s a vibrant district just a stone’s throw away from the city’s historical centre that deserves equal attention. Known as Kapana, this bohemian neighbourhood is the heartbeat of Plovdiv’s artistic and creative scene.
The Historic Charm of Kapana
Kapana, or „the trap“ in Bulgarian, gets its name from the labyrinthine layout of its narrow, winding streets. Originally a bustling marketplace in the 15th century, this neighbourhood fell into disrepair over the years. But recent revitalization efforts have transformed Kapana into Plovdiv’s cultural hub. As you stroll through the district, you can’t help but marvel at the brightly coloured buildings, often adorned with stunning murals.
In between exploring Kapana’s art galleries, boutiques, and craft workshops, why not take a break and treat yourself to a coffee from one of the many independent cafes that line the streets?
