Mineral springs with a temperature of 75 ° С. For their water, Vanga said it was magical, but it should not be sold, because then it would disappear. Unique nature, a place for peace and tranquility. Perfect place and hope today for believing people.

We visited Rupite from Septembrivi, so it was a long but stunning drive up through the mountains, down to Bansko and round towards Greece. The garden of Baba Vanga was serene but the best bit, for me, was enjoying the hot spring pools just outside...More
