Banya and Dobrinishte
The history of the SPA in Bansko and the region is related to balneotherapy. There are many mineral springs with healing power for a variety of diseases. It is enough to mention Banya village and Dobrinishte town – respectively 5 km and 6 km away from Bansko.
The mineral springs in the village of Banya are 75 and the healing power of the water here has been used for many years. The mineral beach in the village, for example, was discovered in 1967. Lumbago, discopathy, gynecological diseases, nerve inflammations, kidney and liver diseases and many others are treated there.
Similarly, Dobrinishte was a major balneological resort for the treatment of kidney-urologic diseases, gall-liver, gastrointestinal, etc.
In fact, balneotherapy is a good base and a logical springboard with the development of the private initiative in tourism to start SPA in Bansko. Because the two are essentially close. SPA is an abbreviation of a combination of words, which in Bulgarian mean “health through water” – exactly what is balneology.
If we have to be “precise”, the mineral springs in Dobrinishte have been used since the Thracians – there are discovered remains of a settlement. The Romans have “taken part” too – they found a Roman bath. But of course that’s just for curiosity.
