Balneology, SPA and Wellness
Mineral springs have been known for their medicinal properties since the time of the Thracians, who were renowned healers. The Roman Empire was well-known for "The Holy Springs of Thrace." With its wealth and diversity of thermal mineral waters and curative mud deposits, few nations in Europe can match Bulgaria's spa, balneological, and wellness tourism. There are almost 550 identified sources, totaling 1,600 springs with a capacity of 4,900 gallons per second.
Bulgaria is a camping spot in Europe that has yet to be found. Each year, more foreign camping enthusiasts visit due to the rich culture, interesting history, and unspoilt nature. Bulgaria has been a popular tourist destination for those seeking something new and different. Whether you travel by motorhome, caravan, or tent, you will see many beautiful locales and breathtaking sights.
Bulgaria has four international airports and is located in the middle of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroads of three continents. It is only two hours by plane from major European capitals and their large international airports with scheduled flights to destinations all over the world. These benefits, together with an increasing number of hotels in main city centers, along the Black Sea coast, and in mountain resorts, make the country increasingly appealing for conference tourism.

Bulgaria is mountainous to the tune of 30%. The country's mountains have a wide range of relief and offer a wide range of relaxation, sports, and entertainment opportunities for tourists, thanks to the great tourism conditions in both winter and summer.
