Kapana creative district. www.visitkapana.bg Kapana is a pulse, an emotion, a provocation and a puzzle. Kapana is discreet, and yet significant, human and magnetic. It is the heart of the urban living organism and Plovdiv deserves exactly this kind of spirit and definitely this kind of future - of a creative district - an attractive place for artists, curators, cultural managers, artisans, architects, software specialists, urbanists, writers and musicians from the whole country and of a recognizable international center. There is no other place in our city, which has existed for more than 5 centuries with such a concentration of places vital for our social activities and with a remarkable sense of urban environment and atmosphere. What makes Kapana district so special is its human dimension - it is so easy to find - being close to all the major attractions in the city; you can't remain indifferent - the concentration of galleries, studios, workshops, pedestrian street spaces, bars and restaurants here is unique; you are always well hosted - it offers a broad range of possibilities for tasting local cuisine and specialties from Spain, Italy, Turkey, Greece and it will make you feel comfortable by providing you with cozy choice and feeling; it will give you the feeling of a friendship, because even though you may be here for the first time you will be surrounded by friends. Kapana is a place that gives you the cosiness of the customized visit, the European cultural hub perspective and the freedom "to get lost". The efforts and the will of all operators that have invested time and energy in the revitalization and the maintenance of the district are deep-rooted and predispose the pulse of the place to stay.
