After vising the houses higher up in the Old Town we visited the gallery on our way down. For a very modest entrance fee you see two floors of a privately owned symetrical house filled with Bulgarian art. Just enough and not too much. The house is stunning.

Philippopolis is the name that Plovdiv went by for most of its recorded history. The name comes from King Philip II of Macedon (Alexander the Great's father), who conquered the city in 342.
