The palace-like edifice contains a huge thermal pool where people often play chess while immersed in chest-high, and very hot, water.

Brilliant place with large hot outdoor pools and 15 indoor pools. We got there quite late in the day but that wasn't an issue, the changing rooms were good enough and simple enough to use. There are packages you can buy including towels etc but you are fine to take your own. One thing though, make sure you have flip... More

I enjoyed our time here as it was something different from what I would normally do... The outside pools are just lovely. I feel as if it needs some renovation though and the locker system frankly wound me up! rather than having a key a locker man comes and opens and closes them for you... Also, you can rent a... More

Once we were in the baths we had a great time - wonderful experience. Organisation does need looking at though. Having paid our entrance fee we were wrongly directed for towel collection. We eventually found the correct place and joined the long queue of people either waiting to collect towels or handing in used towels to reclaim their deposits. Queue... More

It has many pools and saunas. The price is high in my opinion and the cleaning is not the best. Is an old building that can be improved.

The place is interesting due to the architecture and the thermal water has various benefits. Unfortunately the place looks untidy, pools are dirty, lockers are broken, showers look very sad and there is no privacy while there. Get your own towels and robes. Read the instructions on their site if you do not want to have surprises there.

It was a special experience to visit such a bathhouse. We could borrow towels for very little money (about 3 euros). Unfortunately we did not bring slippers, which I really missed. So if you go here, take your slippers with you!! There are no descriptions in English, everything is in Bulgarian. We just tried everything and it was fun. Especially... More

If you are old and sick definitely is good to go. Other wise forget it. Really old people around and also sick people and very old facilities. Small swimming pools and also the mineral waters smell was very bad for the kids. If you are used with new thermal baths....a big definitely NO.

I have wanted to come here for years... And I finally got the chance... I pre-booked but they didn't have the massage times that I wanted so I actually got my money refunded. Decided to take the chance anyway and make the drive to the spa... I am glad that I did! Went to the ticket booth and asked if... More

We went to the baths in November, with the temperature roughly at 4 degrees outside. With one of the outside baths being heated to 37/38 degrees this was ideal and was much more appreciated on a freezing cold day! We didn't spend much time in the inside baths, mostly just the outside. I would recommend on a very cold day... More

We went on a chilly November evening. Not too busy but plenty of people there of all shapes and sizes. The outdoor pool is great on a chilly night, the indoor polls also good. Cabin big enough for two. We spent 2 1/2 hrs there, well with a visit
