Sandanski

Sandanski (Bulgarian: Сандански, formerly, until 1949 Свети Врач, Sveti Vrach) is a town and a recreation centre in south-western Bulgaria, part of Blagoevgrad Province. Named after revolutionary Yane Sandanski, it is located in a valley at the foot of Pirin Mountain, on both banks of the Sandanska Bistritsa River. Another famous native that probably came from the surrounding region of the town was Spartacus, the Thracian slave who launched an uprising against Rome in 73-71BC.

Sandanski's favourable position, suitable climate (with the highest average annual temperature in the country, +13.90°C) and the concentration of mineral water springs in the area are all reasons for the town's fame as a centre for relaxation and recreation.
