Pozar spa - The healing effect

One of the best options for a rejuvenating soak in a country rich with thermal springs. Located in the prefecture of Pella, northern Greece, at the foot of Mount Voras (Kaimaktsalan), 500m above sea level
pozar-spa

Thermal waters here were being used during the era of Alexander the Great through the Roman and Byzantine periods. The spa was named Pozar (“fire” in Serbian) during the First Balkan War (1912-1913), when a Serbian officer, excited at having discovered hot running water, built a basin (still functional) to contain it.
The verdant area around the spa features an impressive ravine. The Toplitsa River, a thermal river formed by hot water springs that gush out at elevations of 360-390m above sea level, flows through the ravine. At the site, there is an old hydrotherapy center featuring 48 private baths, two indoor pools and two small hamam facilities, as well as a modern hydrotherapy center with eight 6-person pools. A 50m swimming pool is located on a specially designed plateau and visitors may also enjoy the small thermal waterfalls along the river.
