    • There are many religions mixed up in these lands.
      Thracians and Goths lived here.
      After them came the Romans…
      The city itself was founded by Emperor Constantine, who introduced Christianity as a religion.
      This is where the Council of Sardicia took place, from which Christianity split into Orthodox and Catholicism.
      So, centuries after centuries here have confessed monotheistic religions and those with many deities.
