Thousand years of history
In the center of the city is the Archaeological Museum with the remains of the Episcopal Basilica, which has preserved physical evidence for more than 27 centuries.
In the archaeological museum, you will be greeted by a holographic image of Spartacus – 3D digitized, which will show you how he arranges the Roman mosaic through a mobile application.
The Church of St. George from 1861 deserves special attention – the only preserved building from the time of the Renaissance.
Sandanski is proud of its unique city park, named in 1981. Saint Vrach. There are over 200 Mediterranean plant species on its territory. The city is famous for its sycamore trees, two of which are natural attractions – the sycamore in the city center (550 years old and 23 m high) and the sycamore tree in the summer bathhouse (500 years old and 26 m high).
The park provides excellent opportunities for recreation and entertainment. The stadium, summer theater, outdoor pool, man-made lake with water wheels and boats are located here.
