    Love to walk around the mountains in this part of those. Breathtaking views, amazing fresh air. Paths are marked and very clear. Sometimes in season even too much people....

    The cheapest skiing you will get. Drinking and eating in bars and restaurants beats packed lunches in France. It does not have the finesse of some Alpine destinations but if you like sliding down a mountain then thats what you can do, cheaply. If you dont like the queues pay £5 to get to the top. Youll save that on your first pint.

    Had a great first time experience on skies with Ski Mania! We booked group lessons and were fortunate to have Nicky as our sky monitor. He was extremely diligent, attentive, supportive and patient. After 3 lessons we went on blue slopes by ourselves and made it to the end in one piece! 😂
    Nicky, thank you for everything!

    Bansko is a lovely small town with many rental ski shops, restaurants, fast food shops and supermarkets. It is very lively with friendly local people who run these shops.

    The 19th cent. Holy Trinity Church dominates the pedestrian Pirin St in Bansko center.
    You'll easily spot it by its bell tower - the highest bldg in town.
    Access is through the courtyard and modest exterior hides stunning beauty inside - terrific iconostasis by the altar with many beautiful frescoes around.
    Really must do when in Bansko.

    Great museum of the great Neophyte of Rila. This highly intelligent and highly educated clergyman of ours spread the Bulgarian language in the Ottoman Empire without wasting energy and resources. He saw that only the enlightened could preserve the Bulgarianness and the future of our people.

    I went couple of times to yoga and salsa class. Elena is just amazing, very professional and enthusiastic. The classes are with limited spaces so make sure you book in advance. Thank you Elena for doing such a great job for the community in Bansko and also the visitors. Dont miss this while in town :)

    A really interesting glimpse of old Bansko. Lovely old house, with beautiful murals.
    It doesn't say on the gate, but it's not open on Mondays.

    We came to Bansko for a skiing trip based on it being recommended for beginners. I wouldn’t say it is. There are no green runs (apart from a couple of tiny slopes that are so packed with beginners you spend more time queuing than on the slopes). I had a two hour lesson and managed to get 2 runs in. I think because there isn’t the availability of the green runs it is tempting beginners that are not ready onto the blue runs - which is exactly the mistake I made and have ended up with a knee injury and no more skiing for the rest of the holiday. Wish we had paid a bit more money and gone to the alps. It’s not a bad resort - and I think the runs are probably fine for people once they know what they are doing, but it’s no good for beginners in a busy half term week.
