The town of Sandanski is as located in the Southwest corner of Bulgaria, 160 km from Sofia. It is as famous for its healing, mineral springs (with temperature of 42 to 81 C) as is for its very pleasant microclimate that is quite beneficial for lung illnesses.

The town has been inhabited since times before Christ. Legends have it that Spartacus, who led the largest slave uprising against the Roman Empire, was born here. Sandanski was also one of the early Christianity centers in the region.
