Korali – Mineral water pool

They say that in Sofia there are 8 different types of mineral water, coming out of around 50 different springs all over the city. Unfortunately, only a couple of the once popular and crowded public baths are working (but in terrible condition). And there are a couple of taps to fill your bottles. And that’s pretty much it… Almost.

There’s one place where you can actually go into the mineral water yourself – Pancharevo. The spring temperature there is 49°C (you can check out the content here). But don’t worry – they let it cool off so in the winter it’s around 34°C and in the summer the water is around 28°C. Still not too good for swimming but perfect for just soaking.

The public bath is not in the best shape but fortunately at the Korali complex there are a couple of open-air swimming pools that work even during the winter. I usually like to go on workdays (less crowded) and in the evening just before they close. Of course, you can have a drink at the pool bar. They also offer a massage if you need a complete relaxation.

And all this combined with the amazing view of the Pancharevo lake (dam) and the nearby hills in the background. Do you need further convincing?
