Hisarya is one of the oldest balneological and spa resorts in Bulgaria and on the Balkan Peninsula. Drawn by the springs (temperature varies between 41º and 52º C), the Thracians were first to establish settlements around 4th – 3rd centuries BC. However, the glory days were during the Roman era when, in year 293, Emperor Diocletian declared it a town. Massive construction of fortification walls, public buildings, baths and streets begun, remains of which are visible today, with the Southern Gate still standing 13m tall.

Hisarya is located in the foothills of Sredna Gora Mountain, 176 km from Sofia and 40km from Plovdiv.
