In the Bulgarian legend about Rhodopa God Hemus creates hills of the today`s city of Plovdiv by throwing stones. The legend of Rhodopa is about love and jelousy and how a God loved a beautiful young girl and how he wanted her only for himself. The girl represents love, beauty and innocence and may this is the reason why Plovdiv (the founded city) is considered to be one of the most beuatiful cities in Bulgaria. It is definitely worth a visit.
It can be related to the legend of the foundation of Rome, since in both stories as a result of jealousy and envy are founded cities near hills and a mountain.
