One of the most precious treasures of Bulgaria is the presence of mineral springs. Our country is one of the few countries in Europe that can be proud with such a wide diversity of thermal springs.
The beautiful, diverse nature of Bulgaria and its many mountains, stretch across the country, offering a wonderful atmosphere for one of the most amazing wonders of Bulgaria - mineral springs. They can be seen in valleys and on lowlands as well as in high mountains, near rivers and on the Black Sea coast. They are known as a magic source of health and beauty, as well as the most precious gift of nature. In our country, more than 250 deposits of mineral water springs have been established, coming from a great depth and therefore being crystal clear.
Since ancient times, people have known the incredible impact of thermal water on human body. Spa treatments were one of the greatest pleasures for them and therefore the spa industry did not stop developing over the centuries. They have been taking long baths with healing water for health, beauty and longevity. The healing qualities of the Bulgarian mineral waters were known even in ancient times. Still ancient Thracians, known as skilled healers, had been familiar with the healing properties of the mineral springs. This tradition continued in the Roman Empire and the ‘sacred’ springs of Thrace became known all over the Great Empire.
In Bulgaria, you can find all kinds of mineral water. As a result of the favourable climate, there is a wide diversity of spas across the country. Springs have incredible healing effect due to which they are the only natural source that can purify and heal the human body in a very effective manner. This is why the Bulgarian mineral springs are known worldwide. People from different countries come to Bulgaria to treat various diseases or simply to relax and have therapeutic spa treatment. Water of the natural mineral springs is different from ordinary water either due to its high temperature or the existence of rare, highly active ingredients. While the cold water from mineral springs is mainly used for drinking, the water from the hot springs is mainly used for therapeutic treatment of many diseases - spa hydrotherapy. Music for body and soul, fragrances, air and energy brought together: this is the power of water and its ingredients.
