The Church of Saints Constantine and Helena is the oldest church in Plovdiv, which was built on the foundations of a church dating back to the late Roman period.
The temple was dedicated to Constantine the Great - the emperor who ruled in the IV century, who proclaimed the state religion Orthodox Christianity, and his mother - Elena.
The church, which has survived to this day, was built in 1832. The magnificent iconostasis, made in 1836-1840, is the work of the artist Zachary Zograf. The covered portico is decorated with sumptuous murals.
