Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019
Plovdiv was the first Bulgarian city chosen to be a Cultural Capital of Europe.
In 2019, twenty years after the city was a host of the Month of Culture in 1999, it celebrated the most prestigious cultural initiative of the European Union.
European Capital of Culture is a unique project for Bulgaria, which provided opportunities for the development of the potential of the city. Also, it acquired new international visibility and perspective of the Bulgarian culture as a whole.
The programme of Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019 included also activities and events in the South Central Region of Bulgaria.
Matera, the beautiful city in Italy, was the twin-capital, together with Plovdiv. The two cities collaborated actively and had common projects and initiatives. For 2019 Matera also represented the region of Basilicata.

The first foundations laid here between 6-8000 years ago, thus making it older than Rome or even Beijing. Plovdiv is a great combination of real historical and archaeological treasures with the liveliness of a modern city and great cultural and night life.
