First: the town is very plesent. Sapareva banya is nearby Rila mountain and the air is fresh and clear. In the town you can see some things, like Municipality; Geyser Sapareva Banya - it is beautiful. You can walk there with you children. You can eat in the restaurant there.

We went all the way to Sapareva Banya to see the geyser but unfortunately it was not functioning (as of early May 2017). We could hear the noise of the vapours and flush but it seemed like the geyser energy was diverted into tubes... to a Spa, perhaps? Having said this, you need not go all the way to the... More

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 the mechanical pump is not working and what you see is just a smoke cloiud... More

The geyser is interesting but there is no much too see. There are no children places and no shadow where you can hide in the summer. There is only one place for having coffee which i haven't tried.

They "locked" this so called geyser in a brick cell, with all kind of pipes around it. This is hardly an attraction worth visiting, maybe the city itself is nicer in the summer, but in the winter - do yourself a huge favor and skip...

I wouldnt recommend that you go out of your way to see it! Situated in a nice town centre area and close to cafes and restaurants.

The hottest geyser in Europe, it definitely deserves some attention. It is a great place to visit with kids, but not a long stop. Half an hour is plenty to take it in. Spend the rest of your time in the relaxing mineral pools or spa to make a day of it!
