Steering just a little from the Main Street in Plovdiv and imperceptibly you find yourself in "Kapana" (literal translation: "The Trap"). Once you get there you would never want to go back.

The district emerged as a centre for craftsmen 5 centuries ago, so don't be surprised of street names like Kozhuharska (Leather Str), Zhelezarska (Iron Str) and Zlatarska (Gold Str). The name of the district itself is inspired by the many tangled little streets. Nowadays you will not find traditions craftsmen here but contemporary creative entrepreneurs. This is due to the massive 3-year joint efforts of the Plovdiv Municipality and "Plovdiv 2019" Foundation put in transforming the until recently neglected part of the city into a real art centre and a districted dedicated to creative industries. This project is also part of the artistic programme of "Together" - the concept and motto Plovdiv won the European Capital of Culture 2019 with.
