The beautiful historic old town of Bansko can trace its routes back to Roman times. Long before any skiing arrived! The town sits at the bottom of the UNESCO recognised Pirin mountains, nestled on the edge of an expansive plateau with the lower, but no-less beautiful rolling Rila mountains to the North and the Rhodolpe further to the East.
As the skiing has expanded so too has the town. Now Bulgaria’s largest, most popular and best-loved ski resort, there is a lively feel to the town and resort with endless and varied entertainment available. Bansko town centre is only a short stroll from all Snomads chalets. The town itself is full of Balkan charm and charisma, especially the UNESCO protected historic old town which is a captivating throwback to the village that has now become a ski resort.
With a wide range of restaurants, bars and old Mehanas (taverns) which we can recommend, a variety of bustling markets and a wide variety of activities on offer the town has everything you need on your holiday.
