It is set among age-old pine woods, at the foot of Mousala peak (2925 m) the highest one on the Balkan peninsula. Borovets is easily accessible, being at a distance of only 70 km from Sofia (the capital of Bulgaria) and 126 km from Plovdiv.
the Rila Mountain. Established at the end of the 19th century as a hunting place for the Bulgarian kings, Borovets gradually developed into a modern, friendly and charming ski resort of high class and luxury hotels, haute-cuisine restaurants and varied leisure-time entertainment opportunities besides the excellent network of ski runs and lifts. The resort is a regular host of various winter sports competitions and has twice hosted World Cup competitions in Alpine skiing.Snow conditions are among the best in Eastern Europe and the season usually lasts from Mid December to April.
The Rila mountains are registered in the UN list of representative protected areas and is Bulgaria's largest national park - 81,000 hectares, two thirds of which is forested. The park contains over 100 peaks, with deep and dramatic river gorges, lakes and waterfalls. The national parks authority have marked many trails and built bridges and information boards and there are mountain chalets for hikers to shelter for the night. The area is of special interest to botanists, with a large variety of flora, including some rare species.

There are ski runs for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers, designed with international markings and multilingual signs. Several floodlit pistes also allow late night fun on the snow.

The Flora complex is ideally situated in the centre of Borovets. You can either ski down to the gondola from behind the ski room or you can walk on the flat for about 2 minutes across to the Rila ski area. You can ski back to within about 50m of the rear of the apartments. Alternatively you can pick up one of the many horse drawn carriages and arrive in style!
Beginners will get the best possible start with a highly rated local ski school and for intermediates there is a good variety of runs as well as some interesting diversions for experts. The lift system is being improved year on year in preparation for the Super Borovets Project.
