DevinThis is a climatic treatment and balneology resort of international fame. It is located about 40 km northwest of Smolyan and 103 km from Plovdiv. Its mineral waters (local and from the Bedenski mineral baths) are suitable for the prophylaxis and treatment of diseases of the loco-motor system and the nervous system, of gynecological, liver and other diseases. A balneology sanatorium has been built and a beach with a mineral water pool has been opened. The spa is particularly popular in the Scandinavian countries. The Devin natural mineral water, extensively used for drinking, is ecologically pure. Apart from the wealth of its mineral waters, Devin is also known for its exceptionally healthy climate. The rocky elevations around and the forests are a true barrier to the cold and strong northwest winds. Devin enjoys a great number of sunny days throughout the whole year; its winters are extremely mild, while the summers are fresh and cool. The air is fresh and pure with no industrial pollutants. The closeness of the fragrant coniferous forests, the rivers rich in trout, the wild goats living in the wilderness (a rarity for the Rhodope mountains) and the cordial hospitality of the local mountain people turn Devin into a favourite town for holiday making and visits.
