Pocket Guide: Sofia City Center Sofia Public Mineral Baths Hotels

Find Hotels near Sofia Public Mineral Baths

The distinctive Sofia Public Mineral Baths building was designed in the neo-Byzantine style and completed in 1908. Now home to the Sofia History Museum, this striking building in the heart of Sofia is walking distance from Sofia’s central attractions, cafes and hotels.

The History of Sofia Public Mineral Baths

The baths opened to the public in 1913, and the following two years saw the addition of a garden in front of the main entrance. Inside the building was a large central pool, with two separate wings (male and female) with smaller mineral pools.

The building was restored several years after World War II, which saw the northern wing partially destroyed. Over the next few decades the baths continued to operate as normal, before permanently closing in 1986 due to further decline of the building. After lying empty for several years it was finally restored to its original state, and has been open as Sofia History Museum since 2015.
