The website presents the Ancient Stadium in the context of the Ancient city of Philippopolis.

The website shows an interactive map, presenting the different visible parts of the Stadium, currently laying under the main street of Plovdiv, so that they are percepted as a single architectural site. There is also information about the games, different stages of archeological research, accompanied by lots of images. Users can see the architectural design project and the different stages of construction works, currently in progress. In 2012 at Djumaya Sq. in Plovdiv visitors will be able to see how exactly the stadium looked like in 2nd century.

The website is part of the project "The Ancient stadium of Philippopolis - preservation, renovation and urban renewal", being realized with the support of the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area.
