Before the excavations in the 1970s, which uncovered the Roman Stadium, Dzhumaya Square (Dzhumayata) was the most popular public square in Plovdiv. It has carried many names throughout the years but its last one comes from the neighbouring Dzhumaya Mosque (located within the square), which is the main Muslim temple in Plovdiv and one of the oldest Ottoman cult buildings on the Balkans.
Nowadays the Dzhumaya Sq. is a popular, vibrant place boasting with locals and tourists on a daily basis. The Roman Stadium is located within its boundaries and there is a really nice cafe just next to the Mosque where you can try traditional Turkish coffee and desserts.
