About Sofia Public Mineral Baths, Sofia

It’s very strange that Sofia, once renowned for it’s public baths, has let that particular heritage slide so badly. The baths had been in use since the 17th century, but structural concerns led to the bath being closed in the 20th century. After some renovation work though, the place is now being used as a hall for temporary exhibitions. Even if the exhibitions themselves don’t interest you, it’s worth going in to the enchanting interior. There’s talk of converting the baths into a museum, but the project is really dragging its feet. The building is a pretty neo-Byzantine construct. Outside, there is a lovely fountain and park, where tourist line up to fill their bottles with free mineral water.

Sofia Public Mineral Baths, Sofia Reviews

  • Lacking the atmosphere most European museums possess and bringing you the feeling of a small regional history installation, the Sofia Museum actually tells you the story of my city quite accurate and in an understanding way. It is possible they make the tour inside a bit more consistent (with maps, arrows, signs, periods, etc.), but overall it’s a great experience. I recommend it.

  • I'd like to only note the manners when selling adminission. Buy ticket to only pernament exhibition is not possible. You need to pay to all temporary exhibition. This simply isn't fair.

  • I enjoyed the whole experience in here! The square in front of the building has its own unique style and looks very jice. The architecture of this museum speak for it self. Like it was not made as museum but still it fits perfectly. The employee here are very communicative and willing to help and explain things. Very nice place! Must visit! The price is acceptable and it is more than worth of paying. P.S. I must admit that staff do not speak English fluently but you will find a way to comunicate if you make an effort.

  • It is a beautiful building but it is not a public mineral baths anymore plus a few dodgy people outside so be careful.

  • Really really interesting information here, fantastic artifacts and informative videos. I loved it.
