It's Saturday morning (or maybe it's almost noon) and you still haven't decided what to do over the weekend!? Well, no need to surrender yourself to autumn depression and close yourself at home with a cup of tea and a book in your hand... Not that it's not one of our favorite activities but there is time for that. The season is one of the most wonderful moments in which you can indulge in urban activities and fully enjoy all that the European Capital of Culture 2019 and its surroundings have to offer.

Choose an event from our weekly selection

And precisely because this year we proudly carry the title, the cultural and club calendar is full of cool events. Our team carefully selects the more interesting ones, but any time you go out of the city, you are guaranteed to find something fun. From street circus performances at Yadroto to a performance at the Ancient Theater and the opening of an impressive exhibition - this is Plovdiv in 2019, and the only thing we have to do is find what excites us in the program.

Indulge in seasonal shopping                

As the seasons change, we have already put our swimsuits away, so now is the right time to update our wardrobe. We suppose this is a favorite pastime for most ladies, but gentlemen should not feel neglected either. The great thing about shopping malls is that we can even do some long-delayed tasks, such as dry cleaning or paying bills. Our favorite place is the first site under the hills - Mall Plovdiv. For 10 years now it has become the “mall” among Plovdiv residents and you can combine shopping with delicious food and entertainment in the form of cinema and coffee with loved ones.

Plovdiv bar crawl

Beach bars are already a long way off, but Friday and Saturday are still time for a party, even in the city. Pick one of our pre-made itineraries or make your own because the weekend nights are for drinking beer, listening to quality music and meeting friends. The Plovdiv way - aylyak!

Pamper yourself with a SPA

Ideally, we even manage to steal a few hours in which to escape from everything and everyone - to clear our minds and recharge our batteries. One way to do this is to pamper yourself with quality SPA treatments, cosmetic therapies and all kinds of pleasures that pamper the body and soul. In the places we chose, you can escape from the noise of the city, and we guarantee from personal experience that after a tense week, there is nothing better than indulging in a massage and relaxing in the sauna.

Take a walk out of town

And if Plovdiv still seems boring to you, remember that the mountain is very near. All you have to do is dig through the article section and find dozens of out-of-town routes. You can even indulge in plenty of alternative entertainment such as paragliding, ballooning, and a horse ride. After all, aren't the weekends just for that - to get the adrenaline pumping and have an unforgettable time!?
