The cave thermal bath
The way from a public pond to an entertainment bath During the 16 century the hot water spring which was used by the Turks, the emperors troops garrisoned nearby, the Greek merchants and the women of the surrounding settlements for bathing, curing and washing became more and more well known and thus more frequented and more widely known. During the development process, started in 1998 and lasting for years, the hall of reception and the two thermal pools were reconstructed. The waterfall (massaging shower) was renewed, by the disclosure of new cave shafts, the water area suitable for bathing increased, and by the enclosure of the park area in front of the main building, a sunbathing garden with a childrens pool was formed. On the left of the main building, a multi-storey building for therapeutical purposes was constructed providing place for a rheumatologic surgery, hydrotherapy, refreshing massage, mud treatment, tangentor, medical massage, electro-therapy, sauna, solarium and a chiropodists.
The modernisation of the changing rooms upstairs, the improvement of the machinery of the building compound had finished by the end of 2001. The services offered by the spa are complete with a jacuzzi, heated benches in the bathing area, hydro-massage closets, sluiced swinging doors, a restaurant, a system of safes for safekeeping valuables and a beauty parlour. In July 2002, the General Management of the National Chief Medical Officers Office declared the bath a medicinal bath and classified it into a national category considering its medicinal value; at the same time, the name of the institution changed to Cave and Thermal Medicinal Bath. By September 2002 the main building and the bathing hall with a relaxing terrace, boarded by a rock wall in the height, had been finished, which, with its water of 120 square m increases the water surface used for entertainment and medical treatment to 1267 square m.
