Abanotubani - Sulfur baths in Tbilisi
Georgia, Tbilisi

Sulfur baths in Tbilisi are not just a place where people wash. The genealogy of Tbilisi began on the right bank of the Kura in the area of ​​warm healing springs, from which the city received its name. Indeed, translated from Georgian “tbili” (“tfili”) means “warm.”
There are indeed a lot of warm sulfur-alkaline springs flowing from under Mount Tabor. At the end of the 19th century, there were 31 of them. Since the temperature of these springs is up to 37°, they have long been used by local residents for bathing. Later, individual springs were improved and led into the built baths.
In modern Tbilisi, the sulfur baths area is one of the most amazing places in the old city. The famous Tbilisi baths are located on one “bath” street, on a small area in the area of ​​​​Gorgasali Square.
The oldest of them is the Irakli bath, for the ownership of which back in the 16th century members of the royal family and the princes of the church argued. Others - Bebutovskaya, Kazennaya and Sumbatovskaya - were built at the beginning of the 17th century. The most noticeable - the Orbelianovskaya (Blue) bathhouse with minarets on the sides and a lancet facade covered with colorful tiles, was erected in 1840.
The baths themselves are located below ground level, only semicircular domes are visible on the surface.
Some scientific data - according to modern reports from physiotherapists and balneologists, the water temperature in hydrogen sulfide baths is 35–37 degrees Celsius. The duration of the procedure is usually 8–12 minutes. The optimal concentration of hydrogen sulfide can be 1.5, 3.0 and 4.5 mol/l (or 50, 100, 150 mg/l). Baths are carried out every other day or two days in a row with a break on the 3rd day. The course of treatment is set at 12–14 procedures.
It should be borne in mind that here is data on the use of hydrogen sulfide waters, specially prepared in a clinical setting. Natural sources of sulfur waters may, in addition, contain other chemical compounds with their own concentrations and may differ in their therapeutic effect. Therefore, in all cases of accessing hot sulfuric waters, everyone should consult a doctor. Only then can you get the desired result. It is believed that the health, beauty and attractiveness of Georgian women depend solely on systematic visits to baths and bath procedures
Here you can rent a room with a swimming pool and a special massage table. A few hours spent in water smelling of hydrogen sulfide will improve your health and give you a lot of pleasure. And be sure to drink a glass of Lagidze mineral water after the bath with your favorite syrup - creamy, chocolate, cherry or tarragon.
