Roman Stadium

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The antique stadium in Plovdiv is situated on Dzhumaya Square, which separates the pedestrian part of the center into two parts. It was built according to the model of the Delphi Stadium – only 12 of this kind are preserved in the world. It is approximately 200 meters long; only its northern part and a part of the fortified wall from the 2nd – 4th century have been exposed. Sports contests were conducted here in the past, as well as gladiator fights and animal fights – the renowned Pitian, Alexandrian and Kendresian games. Remains were found of a hydraulic clock at its central entrance.
