Beautifully restored house at the beginning of the Old Town, featuring a restaurant, a gallery and a museum. Originally known as ‘Hadzhi Aleko’s House’, after its first owner, the house was one of the first in Plovdiv to introduce a more European architectural style.
The interior is full of original antique furniture as well as paintings by renowned Bulgarian artists. Of particular note is the massive carved wooden ceiling in the shape of a sun.
Attracting food and wine connoisseurs from Plovdiv and around the world, Philippopolis Restaurant-Gallery & Garden, is THE place in the Old Town where you can find gourmet pleasures, stumble upon international movie stars and organize your corporate parties in its VIP dining rooms.
The exclusive seasonal menus are a fusion between national flavors and international delicacies. The impressive wine list and welcoming service in this Viennese style restaurant makes you feel as if you were transported to the glorious past of the 1930s’ Europe. Richly decorated in turn-of-the century Viennese style, Tiffany flair stained glass accents, original art displayed between crystal mirrors, and soft music, are the perfect ambience for quiet and romantic dinners.
Its garden, perched on an Ancient Roman wall and overlooking “Kapana” – the artsy and creative hub of Plovdiv – is an ideal place to hang out in hot summer days or host your wedding in an extraordinary decor..
