By Space Coast Daily // January 3, 2019
Breathtaking Beauty, Entertainment and Relaxation
With its crystal clear air, the mountain itself is so relaxing – it is no coincidence that people who live in the mountainous areas are more vital and healthier.
And when the mountain is of an Alpine type such as the Pirin Mountain, people feel light and inspired by the amazing sights – majestic snowy peaks, centuries-old forests, stunning vertical and unfathomable depths, rushing mountainous rivers, lakes and waterfalls.
Beauty and freedom, among which you forget all the worries and stress of everyday life, you feel elated. Moreover, Pirin offers all kinds of opportunities for communion with mountainous nature – from picnics to various routes /easy ones, some of the medium difficulty and really difficult ones, including for alpinists/to…flying over the mountain with paragliding!
These natural resources have made Bansko the most developed resort in Pirin Mountain, a world-famous tourist destination, both in winter and in summer.
Of course, along with the natural beauties, an essential role for this has also the atmosphere and conditions for vacation in the resort, which is kept according to the most modern tourist standards. Here in Bansko, throughout the year, there are numerous international festivals, an extremely attractive entertainment complex during the summer, extreme and classical sports, etc.
Bansko is already a traditional resort-host of the ski and snowboard world championships, as so far they were 7, and the town is “reserved” also for the next three years.
This choice of the International Federation is made after an inspection of the ski runs and facilities of the ski complex, as well as the conditions offered in Bansko with regard to the accommodation and the stay – comfort, service, food, infrastructure, available facilitation for the guests and so on.
It is guaranteed that the holiday here is according to the world standards – in the Aparthotel Lucky Bansko SPA & Relax 5*, for example, there are available relaxing therapies and procedures that are hit among the Hollywood celebrities! High standards and championships, however, don’t mean that the resort is only for the sport’s elite.
In fact, the resort is very good for family vacations. Along with the racetracks, there are also tracks for beginners with provided training for the little ones, as well as for adults, there are also tracks for advanced skiers and snowboarders.
All international user rankings place Bansko among the best winter resorts in Europe, and they specify the town as the cheapest and suitable resort for a family vacation on the continent.
Bansko as a culinary attraction
With numerous visitors from different continents, throughout the year Bansko is a colorful palette of nationalities. Some of the visitors hold to their ethnic traditions in cooking, especially if they are connected with religious canons.

Here you can find the full list of the Balkan cuisine – Bulgarian, Serbian, Greek, Romanian; also cuisine from Central and Western Europe; Arabic, Russian Armenian and international cuisine. Naturally, the mountain resort doesn’t lack Alpine cuisine.
For example, the Swiss restaurant “Fondue” that offers dishes from the Swiss and French regions of the Alps, is a hit among the tourists: here you can try all types of Fondue, meat specialties prepared on hot plate and so on.
Also very popular is the Italian restaurant in Bansko – Leonardo where the dishes are absolutely authentic – not only because of the original Italian recipes but also because the dishes are cooked with Italian products.

The ingredients are specific, as well as the spices and the technology of preparation – black pudding, flat-sausage, dried hams and so on. Some of them need over 6 months to “mature” and to be ready for consumption.
