Since its establishment in Dec 2006, BUBSPA has consistently been working to fulfill its mission – Bulgaria to become known and recognized as a competitive spa and medical spa European destination with its more than 500 healing mineral thermal spas, healing climate and curative mud, competitive quality of the offered spa & medical spa product / modern medical spa & spa hotels, qualified staff, competitive prices/. 

The traditions in the balneotherapy start from the Thracian and Roman times. Romans performed large-scale construction around the mineral springs.  They built the majestic town of Augusta, later on called Diocletianopolis – present-day Hissar.Other remarkable Roman thermal baths on the Bulgarian lands – nowadays leading spa destinations are:

Anhialo − Pomorie

Dezudava – Sandanski

Ulpia Pautalia – Kyustendil

Serdika – capital Sofia

In January 2007, Bulgaria became a member of the European SPA Union and since May 2007, BUBSPA is a member of the European Spas Association.

BUBSPA has received full support and partnership from ESPA in fulfilling its mission in all kinds of levels – expertise, lobbying, participation in EU projects. In May 2013, BUBSPA hosted the 18th Annual Congress of ESPA in Pomorie.

 

For the last 10 years BUBSPA has successfully cooperated with the Bulgarian Ministry of Tourism and its previous structures /State Agency for tourism, Ministry of Economy/.  Several round-tables, conferences and 2 Congresses were held during the years.

 

As a result, today in the National Program for Tourist Advertisement Bulgarian spa and medical spa tourism has its important place. Spa tourism holds 3rd place, together with cultural tourism in the Bulgarian tourism mix /1st is sea tourism and 2nd is ski tourism/.

With the cooperation of ESPA, BUBSPA succeeded to introduce legislation in the spa sector. As a result we have new regulations in the Tourism Act / thalasso, medical spa, spa and wellness are the main directions in the general spa product/.

BUBSPA participated as a partner in the first project financed by the European Commission, with ESPA as a main coordinator – “The Romans spa destinations of Europe”. The project started with a positive result: numerous of reservations from international tourists for the new tourist rout.

Goals ahead: 

To continue developing and promoting the Bulgarian spa destinations on the European spa map and in a cooperation with ESPA – on the world spa map.

Our founders and members – mayors of the leading Bulgarian destinations /Pomorie, Sandasnki, Kustendil, Hisar, Sofia, Varna; medical spa and spa hotels offering competitive spa & medical spa product; experts – doctors, specialist in a cooperation with our ESPA colleagues we`ll continue to work together for our common mission – to further enhance the importance of the SPA industry in Europe!
