Great place to sit in the shadow in warm day and calm down. You can drink mineral water, but it is warm.

Very fresh moment after the rain has gone and sun came up before sunset. The former public bath is now a museum. It has great architecture and detailed interior. Must see spot in town.

The Mineral Baths are still closed for renovations but it is a beautiful building situated in a small square which is popular with the locals. Very close by is the Banya Bashi Mosque which was undergoing major building work when I was there.

Get a drink from the pure community water, maybe take a dip if you have time, too. The mineral baths are neat more as a novelty experience, but especially for the history behind them. If you're not on a tour you will miss out on...More

I went there with snow and ice and I washed my hands with the "healing" mineral water, while many Bulgarian filled plastic bottles. The water is quite warm but not too hot and has a slight sulfur taste. With the snow it was a very...More
