Bansko Reviews

Holiday Date:23rd Feb 2017
Accommodation:Lion Bansko Hotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:Half Board
(3 suns)

It is great for budget skiing/snowboarding. Frankly if you wanted to enjoy snowsports cheaply I'd go self catering and get food on any one of a dozen Street vendors selling pizza's, huge pancakes, jacket spuds, kebabs and get your booze from one of the Aldo Supermarkets. Pubs are crowded and standing room only from 3.30pm til 7pm then empty. Bansko caters for the snowsport holiday makers exclusively. There's very little if anything for kids (unless they ski/board). There's no investment in infrastructure so the roads/traffic are a little hazardous if you don't keep a watch out, the pavements will have you tripping and slipping more than an icy mogul, there's a few wandering homeless dogs and expanses of open wasteland that don't create a good impression. That said, this doesn't bother you on the slopes and this is all on a small budget so you get what you pay for. Bansko isn't picture postcard, it has more than adequate facilities for a great budget snowsports vacation.

Gondola waiting time 1-2 hour, it's killer!

Beaches

Bansko is an inland mountain town with no beaches in the near vicinity. However, the Greek waterfront city of Kavala, which is surrounded by wide bays and sandy beaches, is only 2.5 hours drive away.

Things to Do

During the winter, the highlight of Bansko is undoubtedly the well equipped skiing and snowboarding zone.

During the summer the same ski tracks and the Pirin National Park become a playground for cycling, horse-riding and mountain climbing.

Walking trails and tourist routes can be obtained from the town's visitor information centre, where you can also learn much about the trees and wildlife that fill the Park's mountains, lakes and forests.

The International Jazz Festival takes place annually in August and concerts take place throughout the day and evening, indoors and out, for the best part of a week. During the winter there is an open-air ice skating rink.

Out and About

There are a number of historical landmarks in the town of Bansko itself, perhaps the most notable being the sizeable Holy Trinity Temple and its symbolic belltower. The museum complex provides excellent examples of Revival architecture and also worth a visit is the Bansko Art School Icon Exhibition

Nearby Attractions

Outside of the city you can see the natural rock formation named 'The Wedding' which, according to legend, is actually the guests of a wedding who were turned to stone (29km) or, you could visit the artistic and historic Rila Monastery and Hyrelo's Tower, parts of which date back to the 10th century, in the Rila Mountain (94km)
