THE BISHOP'S BASILICA
AND THE ROMAN MOSAIC HERITAGE OF PHILIPPOPOLIS

Plovdiv and the Bishop’s Basilica made it into the New York Times this week after 52 Places Traveler Sebastian Modak spent a week exploring Europe’s oldest consistently inhabited city. History is just one of Plovdiv’s allures, Modak writes; the city has plenty to offer in contemporary art, local crafts, recreational and culinary opportunities, and quirky local businesses as well. “[In Plovdiv] I felt an urge to create that I haven’t felt anywhere else on this trip so far. After the hangover of Georgia and the exhaustion of Israel during Passover, it was just the dose of motivation I needed,” Modak writes.

Plovdiv is European Capital of Culture in 2019, and visitors will be able to attend a number of exciting events throughout the year. In September, the Bishop’s Basilica of Philippopolis will open to the public, revealing 20,000 square feet of sixteen-century-old mosaics.
