Interesting to see that there is a geyser here in Bulgaria. It is not like in Iceland where there are rock pools and intermittent outbursts. Rather it is a structure that spews out the hot steam. Nice to see still though.

Going down from the mountain to the valley we had the opportunity to pass by the spot where nice renovations took place in the near past. Nothing amazing and just the nature thing alive and spraying.

The geyser is nothing special butbthe surrounding is most of the time pretty lively. Stop for a second when in the neighbourhood.

The place has used to be really interesting as this is the hottest geyser in Continental Europe (103 Degrees Celsius) but the local government has managed to "break" it. After an unsuccessful repair the stream was disconnected and they installed a pump. But nowadays even...More
