The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
Bansko is nestled in the Pirin Mountains in South-western Bulgaria, close to the Greek border. It's an all-year round resort with cold winters, long hot summers and a range of activities to suit every need.
Long known for its skiing and historical significance in Europe, Bansko has been a focus for tourism for many years now and there are many places to visit whilst here:
Pirin Mountains - some of the most accessible walking in Europe which offers a number of trails and 176 crystal clear mountain lakes. Close to Bansko is the Baikushev's Pine (the oldest tree in Bulgaria) which is more than 1,300 yrs old.
Sandanski - a small town bordering Greece where Spartacus, the Thracian Slave who launched an uprising against Rome, was born.
Dobarsko - the location of a small chapel whose walls were recently cleaned to find an old fresco depicting the last supper clearly showing Mary Magdalene at Christ's side painted long before the famed Leonardo da Vinci version. It is alleged that the Templars visited this site and it is linked to stories of the "holy grail".
Bansko is now Bulgaria's number 1 ski and snowboard resort with 65kms of well maintained pistes which are well signed and easy to follow .
The snow record in Bansko is excellent but additionally there's an infrastructure of modern snow canons covering all slopes that compares favourably with the best in the world. Bansko offers great skiing extending through to mid-April.
But winter fun doesn't end at downhill skiing and snowboarding, there's a fantastic mountain fun park, a town centre open-air Ice Rink, ten pin bowling, casinos and aprés-ski to die for!!!
