The city of Plovdiv, winner in the competition for 2019 European Capital of Culture, boasts something which is rarely found around the world - its own arts and crafts district called Kapana (the Trap). Join us and in around 2 hours you will have the chance to trace the development of the neighbourhood, see some of the hidden treasures of Plovdiv that one cannot find on his own and learn more about the work of the local artists and artisans by visiting a gallery and workshops and practicing a craft on your own!
During the 2 hour walking tour of Kapana, the creative district of Plovdiv, you will have the chance to submerge into the history and the atmosphere of this 5 century old place.
The Kapana Arts and Crafts District Tour welcomes its guests every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am at the Municipality building (the Town Hall). During the tour you will learn about the development of Kapana and how it was turned into the creative district of the city. The guests of the tour will have the chance to visit the workshops of local artisans and a contemporary art gallery and will have the opportunity to show us how skilful they are at the handicraft manufacturing.
