The main salt of this beautiful resort with mineral springs, shady parks and mountain views is that all this splendor is located... in half-hour drive from Istanbul! That's it. Once you are in a metropolis with 20 million population, but in thirty minutes you're in paradise. Yalova is a beautiful mansion, popular among the sultans of the Ottoman Empire. Specially for them, there were parked gardens in Yalova, which were as good as those in Versailles. There are flowing springs of mineral water in the middle of the gardens, estimated by leading experts as valuable medicines. Yalova springs are good for skin diseases, cardiovascular, nervous, and the diseases of digestive system. To take baths in these springs, they have built in Yalova several pools. Lying in them, one can enjoy views of the mountains with tropical trees. Or you can relax in the skillful hands of a masseur in hammam. By the way, the sea is also nearby - in fact, Yalova is located on the shores of the Marmara Sea, where the first humans began to settle millenniums BC. Hot mineral waters spurting out of the ground at the foot of the mountains and the coastline - that's what Yalova is. If you want to relax, you just need to go here! Treat yourself to the relaxation of the Byzantine emperors, enjoying the waters of Yalova's basins.
