Dolna Banya Hot Mineral Spa

As the weather was not so good we decided to try one of the various hot mineral pools in the area and opted to drive over to Dolna Banya hot mineral spa, on the other side of Borovets to Samokov. It was snowing pretty heavily as we made out way over the mountain past Borovets and the road was not cleared or gritted. Of course this did not stop the Bulgarians trying to overtake. The journey took maybe around 45 minutes to reach Dolna Banya. Its not the most attractive of towns and there is little on way of nice traditional restaurants. 

Dolna Banya hot mineral spaOne of the Dolna Banya hot mineral spa pools is at the Motel, which is right on the edge of the road leading out of Dolna Banya towards Kostenets (on the left). There was plenty of parking in front of the hotel. We opted to have lunch first. The restaurant maybe lacks any real atmosphere but the food was good, if the service was a little slow and the prices were very reasonable. It was around 20 levs for 3 plates of food a couple of drinks.
