The mineral spring, which is included on the city's emblem is one of the symbols of Sofia. The mineral waters are very hot - about 46 degrees Celsius and their healing properties have been known to help people with various illnesses. Near the mineral bath building there is a place where people can fill their empty bottles and other containers and take mineral water home for free.

Good catch. I think that this is very unique to Sofia. The sight of all the people coming and going, filling bottles and containers with mineral water is eerie. Rain, snow or sunshine they are always there.
