Through Varvarski mineral baths
On way back from our mountain trip with my friends, we stopped to take a short break at Varvarski Mineral Baths.
They are located on the northern slope of the mountain hill Alabak - Western Rhodopes.
There is a mineral bath at the place, from which information board I learned that in the middle of the last century, the second hot spring in Bulgaria was discovered by drilling at a depth of 500 meters.
The water there is 92 degrees and has twice the concentration of metasalicylic acid than usual.
There is a pedestrian bridge next to the baths, on which I walked and enjoyed a wonderful view of the Chepinska River.
On the other side of the river I found a crumbling building that had once been a Mineral Bath.
Next to it I found a winding path that took me to the cliffs and to a railway line.
After lunch at the local inn we headed home, the rain chasing us along the way.
We watched the last August sunset from the car.
Thank you for stopping by!
