The old name of one of the oldest cinemas in Plovdiv - the so-called "Hristo Botev" Cinema, located right in the center of Plovdiv used to be "Excelsior". Now, the newly-opened shopping center there, inside the reconstructed building of the old cinema, has the same name. The Excelsior Shopping Center houses shops of some of the best brands in the world: Versace, Gucci, Puma, Nike, Oxette,?

 

The reconstruction of the building took one and half years and about 2.5 million Euro. During the excavations, a unique Roman stadium dated 2000 ago was uncovered, which was kept preserved at the lowest level of the new modern building and is open for free to visitors daily to see or sit at its 140 seats around the stage ?

 

Beautiful waterfall, using natural water from the Sahat Tepe hill, gives its waters to a large fountain right in the middle of the Excelsior Shopping Center. Eight lifts are taking the customers of the shopping center to its  different levels. The panorama upper floor features a Japanese sushi bar.
