The oldest church in Plovdiv, this is a must-see for its frescoes, colonnade and interior artwork. We found it a little hard to find, hidden down some side streets near the spectacular Roman amphitheater and surrounded by Plovdiv’s famous house museums. The beautiful white bell tower it just about visible above the surrounding buildings.
Once there though, I loved exploring this ancient church. Outside, the colonnade has a fantastic carved ceiling and frescoes. Similarly spectacular frescoes are found inside, along with a lovely baroque style iconostasis and 15th-18th century religious art.
