Spa tourism in Greece can boast about two more hot springs that were officially recognised as thermal spas. The recognition came through “a ministerial decision implementing national tourism policy, which aims to promote forms of theme tourism – in this case spa tourism and promoting thermal springs as tourist destinations”, says ANA-MPA.
Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura was the competent official who signed the relevant decision.
An announcement released on Tuesday said that the two springs are Kivotos of Grevena in northern Greece and Paleovraha, Makrakomi in central Greece. The first is best for people with rheumatism, joint pains and nerve system disorders, “while that in Paleovraha is considered therapeutic for muscular, skeletal and nervous system ailments, as well as skin problems.”
Across Greece there are 45 such recognised and licensed springs while more similar applications have not been examined yet…/IBNA
