Sofia Municipality has asked the state to manage also the baths in the metropolitan areas of Ovcha Kupel and Gorna Banya. Funding has already been provided to rebuild the first one in a spa centre, and the second one is looking for funds, announced Sofia Municipality. A large number of people in Sofia insist that the spa centre, which is now transformed into a Museum of Sofia, should be re-started as balneology.
