About the neighborhood
Summer temperatures can reach mid 30s and cooler in mountains for walking.

The many shops sell souveniers, clothes, crafts and the antique shops have some very good war memorabalia.

Dont forget the coffee shops, or the village square, with its fountains and rug sellers., lots of places to relax and see the real Bansko.

Belista Bear Sanctuary is worth a visit, 33 kilometres from Bansko in the Rila mountain range, this was opened with the support of Briget Bardot and houses many dancing bears rescued from all over Europe. It is in many acres of woodland so is a perfect day out for all the family.

45 km will take you to the Rila Monastary. This is one of the mo...
