Fodor's Expert Review Matsesta Springs

Sochi Hot Spring Fodor's Choice

The curative springs of Matsesta, meaning "fire water," were first discovered by ancient Greek and Venetian merchants during their intensive exploration of these shores. The sulphurous springs are responsible for Sochi's existence as a health resort since in the early 1900s. Visit the contemporary bath complex for a soak; the facility still serves up to 2,000 patients per day.
