Medical studies in Plovdiv

Plovdiv is the centre of the Plovdiv region and is situated in the upper Thracian lowlands of South Bulgaria. It is the second largest city after Sofia with nearly 370,000 inhabitants. Plovdiv already exists since the first millennial before Christ and has been elected to the European cultural capital 2019 because of its cultural diversity and enormous history. The most important Bulgarian fairs take place here as the city offers a very convenient and central location and is therefore known as commercial centre.

Plovdiv is located in the south part of Central Bulgaria. Sofia is situated 130 km westerly, Burgas and the Black Sea 250 km easterly of Plovdiv. The climate is Mediterranean but if you are looking for a winterly diversion you do not need to travel a lot – only 80 km away to the popular winter sports resort Pamporovo.

Housing situation

The housing market in Plovdiv offers a big variety – also for small budgets. The Medical University Plovdiv also provides modern hostels where students can rent small but reasonably priced rooms (unfortunately without cooking facilities).

Cultural capital of Europe

Culturally the city offers a lot – and will be able to show that in 2019 as it has been elected to the European cultural capital 2019. A must see are the Open-Air-Events in the Roman amphitheatre. It caters something for all tastes summer long.
