#2 of 56 in Nature in Bulgaria
Ski, snowboard, and night-ski in a former hunting ground of Bulgarian kings at Borovets Ski Resort. Nestled in pine woods 1,390 m (4,560 ft) above sea level, the facility was established as a winter resort in 1896. It now features hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, and a network of ski runs and lifts. The total length of the 24 pistes is 58 km (36 mi), and the highest ones are at 2,600 m (8,530 ft) above sea level. Watch local ski instructors put on a ski-jumping show. The resort also offers biathlon facilities for training. Winters here are mild, but the snow is plentiful.

Where to stay in Borovets

As one of Bulgaria's most popular and oldest ski resorts, Borovets is filled with  hotels and guesthouses featuring comfortable rooms and plenty of amenities. The resort itself is quite compact, so if you stay in any of the larger hotels, you'll be smack dab in the center of the action with easy access to the ski area and restaurants. For a quainter experience, check out a bed and breakfast or one of the private chalets scattered around the countryside just outside town. While these require more of a trek to the slopes and the main part of Borovets, they're cheaper and you'll trade the resort's hustle and bustle for time in the Bulgarian wildnerness.
