History buffs will enjoy the town of Hissar located 25 mi/40 km north of Plovdiv—there are plenty of Roman walls, gates and other ruins scattered about.

Other draws include two 1,300-year-old Christian basilicas and an excellent museum displaying artifacts found in local excavations. In the summer, attend a performance in the open-air theater. The local spa, renowned since the time of Solomon, is quite popular. Most visitors see Hissar as a day trip from Plovdiv, but we think the town rates an overnight stay (or longer, if you're visiting the spa).
