Bansko is an old town that sits on the flat valley foor in the scenic Pirin National Park in Bulgaria. The national park is known as an area of outstanding natural beauty, and it is situated against the backdrop of the imposing 2,915m Vihren mountain. Although skiing in Bulgaria in general has a less impressive pedigree than its western European cousins, in recent years this has been changing, and Bansko has hosted World Cup runs. Getting to Bansko takes only 2 hours by road from Sofia. Read more...
