Bansko is located approximately 2.5 hours drive away from the cosmopolitan capital city of Sofia.
Set at the foot of the Pirin mountain lies the idyllic Bulgarian resort, where old meets new. The traditional spirit of the small town has been preserved through the centuries with its quaint cobbled streets, and the old clock tower in the town square where the bell has been chiming the hours for over 150 years. Breathtaking scenery and a varied range of activities make Bansko an appealing year round holiday destination.
A Favourite Ski and Snowboard Destination
Bansko is a thriving, modern winter ski resort which rivals the Alps at a fraction of the price. The season runs from December to April and excellent ski facilities are guaranteed. Skiers of all abilities are well catered for, as Bansko has over 65 km of marked ski runs. In less than 20 minutes, a fast Gondola cable lift will whisk you to the modern ski centre, situated on the upper mountain slopes. The ski runs are serviced by a number of cutting edge Doppelmayer chair and drag lifts. At the end of the day, it is your choice whether to return by the Gondola or ski down the ski road, which marks Bansko as one of the few resorts in the world to offer this option.
In addition to on-piste skiing, there is a fun park which offers fans of the extreme winter sports the option to ski over artificial bumps and jumps. A brand new ice skating rink has also recently opened. All the latest ski and snowboarding equipment is available to hire in resort and some of Bulgaria’s best ski instructors are on hand to give tuition to beginners.
Bansko in the Summer
A warm, sunny climate prevails during the summer months in Bansko. The great outdoors awaits with some of the most stunning scenery and nature in the World. Walking, mountaineering, paragliding, cycling, canoeing, horse riding and golfing are all on offer in the resort and the numerous Spa and Wellness centres offer total relaxation for both mind and body. There are many historical, architectural and cultural monuments in Bansko, including the famous local church and the houses of famous Bulgarians from the period of the Bulgarian Revival. Excursions to nearby sites of interest such as the Rila Monastery and organised walks are also available to book in resort.
Eating Out and Entertainment
Bansko offers a unique combination of a modern mountain resort and a living rustic town with a population of about 10 000 people. Almost 100 ‘mehana’ dining places offer local cuisine dishes including barbecued meats and fish, fresh salads and pancakes drizzled with honey and chocolate. Dining during the summer months is low key, but during the winter season, an atmosphere of traditional songs and dances performed by local artists fills the town. A typical 3-course meal with wine costs around £6. For a livelier evening out, there are a number of trendy bars and a couple of discos. Both winter and summer, Bansko hosts a number of festivals, including the Bansko Jazz Fest and the Festival of Local Traditions.
