Last night Plovdiv exploded in music, colors, and effects to celebrate the title of European Capital of Culture 2019. Whether there were 10 or 100,000 people, the emotion was felt all day long, both in the streets of the ancient city and in social networks. Plovdiv citizens and guests of the town were congratulating each other. And, despite many predictions that the whole show will turn into a fiasco, the faces of people show that they were all captured by the magic of dance and melody.
