Salinas train

The most interesting attraction is the Train of Salt, operated by Salinas AD. The small railway train operates from the beginning of May till the end of September. The journey along the dykes of the lake among salt mountains is entirely dedicated to salt production. The surprises for those that experience for the first time this trip follow one by one. Here the visitor could see the pinky-red waters of Atanassovsko Lake (its copy right), thousands birds flying over the water, enormous white mountains of salt – bohors, that appear under the competent hands of the salt producers. Here you could witness how the sea water turns into salt crystals with the help of blast and hot sun rays. Let us leave you to find by yourselves the other secrets of the lake.
