Roman aqueduct, Plovdiv

Roman aqueduct, Plovdiv

The Roman aqueduct in the town of Plovdiv, also known as the "Aqueduct of Philippopolis", is an ancient engineering marvel that provided clean water from the Rhodope Mountains to the ancient city. Built in the 2nd century during the reign of Emperor Hadrian, this aqueduct is one of the best preserved Roman aqueducts in the world.
Spanning approximately 18 kilometres, the aqueduct consists of a series of arched structures that carry water from springs in the mountains to the city.
The aqueduct was the main source of drinking water for the inhabitants of Philippopolis, as well as for various public buildings such as baths, thermae and theatres. Its well-preserved structure demonstrates the skill and knowledge of the Roman engineers who designed and built this impressive system more than 2,000 years ago.
Today, the Roman Aqueduct in Plovdiv is an important cultural and historical site that attracts tourists and researchers from all over the world. Some parts of the aqueduct are still functioning, while others have been reconstructed or incorporated into the city's modern infrastructure. Visitors can explore the remains of the aqueduct along a specially constructed trail that follows the original route of the structure.
