Alay Banya

     Alay Banya (The bath of the soldiers) is a public bath in the town of Kyustendil, built on the foundations of Late Medieval Turkish bath.

 

     The original Turkish bath was partially destroyed after the Liberation, and was restored in 1912-1914, as a small two-storey building with a single compartment. It has an outdoor fountain with mineral water. In 1928 the bath was modernized and reconstructed in its present form. Today the bath includes a sauna, a swimming pool for relaxation, a massage room and others.

 

     Address: 22 Khan Krum Street, Kyustendil
