Sofia is famous for its mineral springs, which provide warm mineral water for baths and even drinking. These popular mineral fountains are located right in the centre of town, and I was surprised to see crowds of locals filling up water fountain barrels and bottles. 


We tried some of the water and I have to say it wasn’t the nicest to drink – with a strong sulphurous smell. Some claim the mineral water has numerous health benefits though, so if that’s your thing top up your bottles!
