Hello my dear friends! 😀
Next stop is a little community called Loutra. Loutra literally means baths/bathhouse! The village got its name from the hot springs that exist there, famous for their healing properties. The first spring was discovered by a farmer who was looking for sulfur to sprinkle on his vines. After the end of World War II, residents blasted the rocks with dynamite and out of them gushed hydrosulfide with a water temperature of 39C/102F. There used to be volcano in the area and that’s what makes these springs so unique.
Unfortunately i do not have any photos of the springs, or the luxurious spa but i can tell you this…Hydrosylfide stinks!!! No, i mean it really stinks! My dad used to visit the springs and i still remember how he smelled like a rotten egg combined with a hot fart. I hope you were not eating while reading this, if you were i’m really sorry…but it’s true 😛
I’ll try to make it up to you with some photos of the area around Loutra. Click on them to start a full screen gallery view 🙂
