"Nothing like a home cooked Bulgarian meal"

Lost in Plovdiv Team continue our series with Megan who shares with us her favorite things about Plovdiv and Bulgaria 


"I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I am an educator by profession and an entrepreneur. I have recently opened up a language school in the heart of Plovdiv called Central Language Hub. The aim is to provide people with an opportunity to learn English from a native English speaker. I want to give them authentic experiences like I had growing up and to teach them not only language but a respect for other cultures, the environment, and a positive mindset.

 I love traveling and by chance, I discovered Slovenia – where I met my now husband and ended up in this beautiful hidden gem! I guess like most people I came here for love. I love Bulgaria, the great food, and great weather! I think it’s a country with a lot of opportunity and room for growth. "

When friends visit Plovdiv for the first time we go to...Oh, so many beautiful places! First stop has to be in Kapana for a beer! The neighborhood has such a nice vibe and foreigners love all the bars and cafes in such an artsy district. After that, it’s a must to see the ancient theatre and the old town.

When it’s party time I go to...Fargo – it’s the place to be when you want good cocktails and music

The most underrated place in Plovdiv is...Alosha – the view is great!

A place in Plovdiv that always wows people is...the ancient theatre and the Roman stadium, people really love the old meets new that can be found in the city.

For a delicious food I usually go to...my aunties! Nothing like a home cooked Bulgarian meal. But Pavaj and Poco Loco are definitely up there!

The coolest place in town is...Kapana – an ever-growing pedestrian zone! A new place is always popping up and it’s full of events.

My alternative route in Plovdiv is…anywhere and everywhere, it’s such a walkable city!

My least favorite thing in Plovdiv is...the recycling system - or lack there of - and the use of plastic bags and cups
