Bansko

Trip Planner Europe  /  Bulgaria  /  Blagoevgrad Province  /  Bansko
(4.1/5 based on 2,800+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: winter sports, nightlife, sightseeing
Boasting the longest ski runs in the country, Bansko offers one of the best ski resort locations in Bulgaria. What makes this area different from other ski towns is its rich local cultural history, which is evident in the Roman ruins at the city's outskirts. The snowy spot at the foot of Pirin Mountain offers superb skiing and snowboarding conditions for a winter holiday. Only 160 km (99 mi) from Sofia, here you can take in dramatic mountain views and zip down ski runs that compete with those in France and Switzerland. Once you tire of snow sports, cozy up at a nearby bar or traditional Bulgarian restaurant. Use our Bulgaria travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Bansko and any other destinations in Bulgaria that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Bansko

To make the most of Bansko's ski- and outdoor-oriented atmosphere and attractions, try staying at an upscale hotel featuring an on-site spa.
