Apparently this geysor doesn't work all the time. Rumour has it it is only working during the weekend. I mean, there steam, but it doesn't blow. A bit of a disappointment.

Interesting to see that there is a geyser here in Bulgaria. It is not like in Iceland where there are rock pools and intermittent outbursts. Rather it is a structure that spews out the hot steam. Nice to see still though.

Going down from the mountain to the valley we had the opportunity to pass by the spot where nice renovations took place in the near past. Nothing amazing and just the nature thing alive and spraying.

A lovely park area houses a geyser that has been modernised and made more into a tourist attraction. There is a strong smell of sulphur in the air. It's worth a visit if you're in the area but it's not what you imagine a geyser...More
