The town of Sandanski is famous with the best natural public health for bronchial asthma in Europe. Sandanski is popular for its mineral springs, mild climate, variety of places of interest and old-centuries cultural heritage.
Sandanski is located 160 km south of Sofia on the E-79 motorway in the sunniest part of Bulgaria at an altitude of 224 m in the foothills of the Pirin Mountain.
Beyond the contemporary town lay the ruins of an ancient town. Once the Thracians named the settlement Medius (among three mountains – Pirin, Ograzhden and Ali Botush), then the Romans named it Dezudava, and the Slavs – Saints Vrachove.
