They "locked" this so called geyser in a brick cell, with all kind of pipes around it. This is hardly an attraction worth visiting, maybe the city itself is nicer in the summer, but in the winter - do yourself a huge favor and skip...

I wouldnt recommend that you go out of your way to see it! Situated in a nice town centre area and close to cafes and restaurants.

The hottest geyser in Europe, it definitely deserves some attention. It is a great place to visit with kids, but not a long stop. Half an hour is plenty to take it in. Spend the rest of your time in the relaxing mineral pools or spa to make a day of it!

We stopped off here on our way to Rila Mountain (via the Panichishte Chairlift) Took shoes off and paddled through the water - Very Refreshing. Sat down for 1/2 hour at the side and occasionally got wet with the spray of the geyser There was a few childrens funfair rides and a bouncy castle on the outskirts of the park.... More

had a short stop to the hot mineral spring and dipped our feet in the water. very refreshing. the small park it sits in has amenities for kids to play and shops to eat and drink. had an hour stop off on way to Rila monastery (Review to Follow) well worth the visit as a keen photographer.

The geyser is situated in a small park, the actual fountain good do with a refurbishment, the park is pleasant to sit in, although the spring does smell strongly of sulphur

While staying in sapareva banya for our rila lakes tour we visited the town center and the geyser and dipped our feet in the mineral water. Nice for a short visit if you are in that area.
