The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
Bansko is situated in the south west of Bulgaria, about 160km from the capital, Sofia.
The town of Bansko is situated at the foothills of the beautiful Pirin mountain range, and surrounded by the Rila and Rhodope mountains, making it an idyllic scenic mountain setting. Parts of the Pirin mountain range and are a national park and world heritage site..
The mountains are ideally suited for skiing in the winter and mountain trekking in the summer with three peaks towering over 2900m.
In the local vicinity, as well as skiing and trekking, it is also possible to fish, mountain bike, rock climb, pony trek and walk in beautiful alpine meadows.
Mountain Dream Complex is one of the best equipped resorts in Bansko and claims the best indoor pool in town. As well as it's excellent location on the southern end of the town and within the Pirin National Park, it has great on-site facilities to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.
More information about the Mountain Dream complex can be found on the website www.mountaindreambg.com.
The old town centre is steeped in history and has a truly established feel, with old classic town buildings and churches amidst cobbled streets.
Many traditional Bulgarian restaurants and bars/tavernas called "Mehana" can be found here. They combine lovely tasty Bulgarian dishes and local wine/beer with lively non-stop entertainment, including folk music, discos and all-night clubs.
There is a new floodlit outdoor ice rink opened in 2008, which if you haven't had enough exercise on the slopes, provide more opportunity to burn those calories!
History and Culture
There are well over 100 important cultural monuments still remaining in Bansko and it's nearby vicinity attracting tourists from far and wide.
The archeological traces of the inhabitants of Bansko and the Razlog Valley in general date to the early periods of the Roman Empire. There are several housing structures at the outskirts of the town, which date to 100 BC.
Until 5 October 1912, Baniçka (Bansko's former name) was a part of the Ottoman Empire, but enjoyed a quasi self-rule autonomy granted by the sultan. The town was ruled by an assembly of the elders, while justice was administered by the Ottoman judge in Razlog. It was incorporated in Bulgaria in 1912 as a result of the First Balkan War.
Bansko, once mainly a stockbreeding and travelling merchant community, has nowadays become a centre of winter and summer tourism. The mountain peaks near the town, the numerous lakes and the old pine woods make it a popular site for recreation. In recent years, the town has gained international popularity after the start of the annual Bansko Jazz Festival and consequently the annual Bansko pop-star concert featuring top pop stars. The nearby village of Banya, located only 5 km from the town, is known for its 27 thermal mineral springs.

"Very nice accomodation, would strngly recommend if it wasn't for the barking dogs every night"
Group of 2 families and 1 friend - half term break Mid Feb 2014.
Met by very friendly staff at about midnight, who actually drove us to a resturant rather than just pointing us in a direction in an area we were totally unfamiliar with. We had 3 rooms, all were clean and tidy and fairly well equiped but we didn't really eat in other than breakfast.
The use of pool and facilities were very good, and during the day virtually had to ourselves (we had some non-skiers). Prices of supermarket in resort was somewhat higher than off site supermarkets.
Overall would recommend this location, other than virtually every night the dogs roaming loose around the area would have barking competitions every now and again. However, with heavy skiing and a few beers we were so tired we didn't hear them much on last couple of days.
It was a good 10 minute walk down to gondola station and town, and 15 minute back uphill carrying your boots.
