The mineral water

Bulgaria abounds with more than 700 mineral springs. St. St. Constantine and Helena resort is where people literally can dunk in that liquid natural treasure. That is also the first sea resort in the country. But for what reason do we recommend it? There are seven mineral springs on its territory, as the water composition has beneficial effects for both prevention and recovery from various health issues. Precisely because of the beneficial properties of water, high-class hotels are opened in the resort, focused on its use during a holiday in them. The water is low mineralisation, calcium-magnesium, with a temperature between 40 and 60 degrees Celsius. Its characteristics favour cardiovascular problems, problems with the endocrine system – diabetes, obesity, gout, musculoskeletal system diseases, and functional nervous system. And the enjoyment of the procedures themselves is an extra pleasure.
