Roman Amphitheatre back to its former glory

Built back in the 2nd century AD - it was only discovered in 1972 when a freakish landslide swept through the area. In its heyday the amphitheatre would have help up to 6000 spectators and since restoration the venue often revered as one of Bulgaria's most magical venues is back hosting concerts and special events.
