Velingrad is located in the most beautiful part of the Western Rhodopes, in the center of the Chepino Valley - a unique place where the Rhodopes and Rila ‘touch’. It is located only 120 km away from the capital Sofia and 80 km away from Plovdiv.
This region with ancient history and picturesque nature has one of the greatest earthly riches - the life-giving power of numerous mineral springs, which make it one of the most popular destinations for spa and balneotherapy not only in Bulgaria but also in the Balkans. The legend says that these healing waters were the source of the titanic power of Spartacus - the leader of the rebellious slaves in ancient Rome.
Nearly 80 warm and hot springs are known in the region, and the temperature of the hottest one reaches 91 degrees. The city is definitely one of the most successful resorts in our country.
