“Still closed for renovation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The building's exterior is striking, but the inside is still being renovated for its rebirth as a museum. Located behind the Banja Basi Mosque.

“Central Mineral Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

The current building of the Central Mineral Bath was completed in 1913. Has a unique architecture. The springs are used in Roman and Ottoman times. Now the building is closed for restoration. In the near future there will house the Museum of Sofia.

“a beautiful building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

A lovely building but the mineral baths are not open to the public. The building is not used for mineral baths but only used for storage of artefacts.

“NOT a big deal”
