Krinides-Kavala is situated in the north of Greece and is best known for its therapeutic muds and being the home of the first Christian church in Europe. The archaeological park of Phillipi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located here, as well as the large ancient theatre that’s still used to this day for various performances and concerts.
The Krinides Mud Baths are located at the foot of the Lekanis hills, near the Zygaktis River and provide mechanical, thermal and chemical effects on the body. This removes pain and helps you to relax, whilst also improving breathing and skin conditions. A clay treatment pool with showers around the edge is divided into two sections, one for females and one for males. It’s advised that tourists dive into the clay for 25 minutes then shower off the mud. A hammam is also available, providing hydro-therapy baths and massages. The Krinides thermal springs are 28 °C and full of properties such as magnesium, calcium and bicarbonates.
After the mud baths, why not walk around the Archaeological Museum of Philippi and learn about this ancient city. Tickets cost €6 per person.
