How to get there

Bansko is 2 1/2 drive from Sofia airport. Taxis during the summer are expensive so the easy option is a bus from the Central bus Station. A taxi from the airport to the bus station is around 20 lev and the bus is 16 lev - its an air conditioned coach so don't worry. A taxi at the other end is around 10 lev (€ is about 1/2 the lev price)

During the winter there is the Bansko shuttle costing about €25.

Car hire is ok but beware the roads in places aren't that good but directions are in English on most signposts

The train from Sofia to Bansko takes over 6 hours so no idea where it goes. Only 1 a day as well. We will try it one day and repost but not advised at the moment
