Since a long time I want to show you what the orthodox churches of Plovdiv look like.
Many of them are from the 19th Century, others are from the 20th century. Although not the oldest ones in Europe, they are to me very beautiful and special. And as a person born in Plovdiv, I feel obliged to show you what they look like from the outside and from the inside.

Here are some of my personal photographs of many of the churches of Plovdiv. Enjoy…
