The mascot of the city – Milio

If you are walking on the main street of Plovdiv you will notice a bronze statue of a man sitting on the steps infront of the Bar Kaligula, this is Milio , one of Plovdivs symbolic figures.


Brandes by some as a „harmless crazy“ he lived in the city in the sixties and was a famous gossip. The legend goes that he knew the gossips of the whole town and told them to everyone interested (and occasionaly uninterested) in them.

He was a muse for several famous Bulgarian artists, most notably the world famous Zlatio Boyadjiev.
