Sandanski
The Essential
At the heart of Bulgarian Macedonia, this spa town is renowned for the curative properties of its waters, used in treating pulmonary complaints, and for its sunny weather. Birthplace of Spartacus, it has a large botanical park laid out in the lee of the Pirin range. Nearby is the strange landscape of the "Pyramids", at the heart of which lies the ancient town of Melnik, and Rozen Monastery, a peaceful place sited on an isolated plateau.
