A day of open doors will be held today in the building of the renovated mineral bathhouse in the Bankya resort, located near Sofia. Those interested will be able to see the renovated historical building, which is about to open its doors soon.

Widely known as the Royal Bath, it was created during the time of Tsar Ferdinand. It was designed by architect Prof. Carl Hocheder from Munich, a leading specialist in the creation of similar buildings throughout Europe. The project was created back in 1906 and on May 24, 1911, the bathhouse was officially opened.

The restoration that took place in recent years has brought back the authentic appearance of the remarkable building in Bankya Park. The mineral water there is clear, odorless, soft and extremely tasty. It is used in the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, the peripheral nervous system, etc.
