Narzan Baths

Mineral Water Spas

The Moorish exterior of the Narzan Baths, dating from 1904, is looking very handsome after a recent restoration. Unfortunately, the building has been closed for years and with interior restoration of the two swimming pools and 24 mineral baths ongoing, it's not clear when this building will again reopen.
