The monument of Alexander the Great’s father, Philip II of Macedon, was erected in 2004 with the sponsorship of the Municipality of Thessaloniki, Greece. Philip II of Macedon conquered the once Thracian city of Evmolpia and gave it its name – Philippopolis (Nowadays Plovdiv).
The monument was initially positioned in front of the Roman Stadium, but due to renovations of the stadium, it was later moved in front of the Municipal Council of Plovdiv. This incredible piece of architecture is certainly a sight worth seeing if you're ever walking around Plovdiv. It is also just steps away from the Garden of Tsar Simeon.
