The Deutsch Bahn serves both cities. Watch the below link:

The upper link is so long because I simulated one trip between both cities.

The Deutsch Bahn site is www.bahn.de

Re: From Thessaloniki...

The best way for you is to go via Sofia.
There are three connections to Sofia, where there are numerous trains to Plovdiv, so you can do this in under 10 hours if you are lucky. Maybe you can find a direct bus to Plovdiv, but it will pass through/close to Sofia anyway. The price of the Bulgarian portion of the trip should be around 5 euro. Buses are also an option, but they are slightly more expensive.
I suggest that you don't consider the option of getting off at the border crossing, because even if you find transportation across the Rhodopes, it will take you ages and will unlikely save you money. The above mentioned Dobrinishte is about 6 hours by train to Plovdiv (a slow but exciting narrow-gauge ride).

Travel Tips for Plovdiv

Only change your money into local currency at a bank,i got a good rate at this one. Here the staff were friendly and spoke english, you need your passport or ID card. A passport or ID card is required when buying bus tickets to cross borders.

The Plovdiv hills

by krassimir71

I took this photo one late afternoon on the top of one of the plovdivs hills "Aljosha" /it is an statue of rusian soldier/ the monument which is kind of sign for plovdiv is left from the comunist times .. but still it is at such place that it is dificult not to see it. at the botom of the hill there is big park area and you can see many people some are having rest and enjoing the nature others as those in that photo are in love obviousely.

practical informayion

Plovdid has no tourist office. The only place that may be helpful for tourist information is the Council of tourism at Tsar Ivaylo street 2. (open from 9-18 on weekdays). There are banks near ploshtad Dzhumaya, of which the United Bulgarian Bank has an ATM. Inside the main psrt office at the Tsentralen square you find a telephone center and its open from 11-23. Allong the main street you can find internet caf├ęs and Net Burger internetcafe is at the north of the Public Garden. There is also one (Rnet) at Danov street. For newspapers, maps and magazines check the bookstalls at ploshtas Tsentralen. For cases of theft etc, the police office is located near the ploshtad Tsentralen at Ivan Vazov street.

Monument of Alyosha

by ger4444

At Bunardjika, the hill of the Liberators) you can climb a path that goes to the top of the hill, through a relax park. At the top of the hill there is a statue of a Russian soldier, Alyosha, who stands symbol for the fact that the Russians liberated the Bulgarians from the Nazies. Thus, originally, this statue stood for anti-fashism and the bond between the two Slavic brotherhoods. I ve heard that these days there is discussion of removing the statue. Maybe since Bulgaria is more orientating to the West. However, it would be a pity, although I cannot estimate whether the monument reminds of bad feelings with a Russian communist past. The monument is beautiful and one of my favourites in Plovdiv. It is dynamic, youthful and exposes force. From the monument you have a great panorama of Plovdiv. You can see as far as the grey concrete suburbian blocks of flats in the far away distance.
