– The Turkish bath in the village of Banya

The Turkish bath in the village of Banya

The Turkish bath was built with a donation from a Turkish family in the 17th century.

The Turkish bath is built with 2 entrances because the Turks have a belief that one should go inside the bath with the left foot through the left door before taking a bath, and after that – went out through the right one. For the warm waters of the Turkish bath, they used “Blagata voda” (the Sweet water) with temperature of 54 degrees. The mineral water was mixed with the cold water from the river that directly flowed under the bath.

Next to the Turkish bath there is a beautiful park with various and fun attractions suitable for families with children.

Just a few meters away is the recently built fountain, called “Good Water” because of the healing water that flows in it.
