About Sandanski region:
Situated in the South-western corner of Bulgaria, the town of Sandanski is blessed with great mild climate and a wealth of warm healing mineral water springs, thanks to which it has established itself as a likeable, laid- back spa destination.
Originally founded by the Thracians way back in about 2000 BC, the town later became part of the Macedonian and the Romans civilizations. According to some sources, Sandanski may have been the birthplace of Spartacus, leader of the legendary slave revolt against the Romans in Sicily in 74 BC.
Today it makes a great alternative base for Pirin Mountain hikes and for exploration of the wine testing options in the numerous wineries in the arid surrounding villages. With over 80 springs with temperature between 42 to 81°С, different level of mineralization and chemical composition, the Sandanski area’s mineral waters are perfect for outdoor swimming all year round and have a strong healing effect on a number of diseases. The area is known for its low humidity and high average temperature, long sun shine duration and healthy moderate climate. The modern SPA centres and comfortable hotels with vast gardens and parks are a major draw for those who wish to relax and spoil themselves with revitalizing wellness procedures.
