Just love the place, interesting people and fun activities. I have not been to the alps skiing but Borovest is good enough for me.

Fantastic ski resort with something for everyone and all abilities.

Holiday Date:14th Jan 2017
Accommodation:Club Hotel Yanakiev
Room:Superior Double Or Twin
Board:Half Board
(4 suns)

Slopes are solid, with a great variety regarding difficulty. One bad point is the quality of air. Seems like some of the locals use not only wood for heating, but maybe burn plastic or other waste occasionally. Food is not at best level at restaurants, but far from bad.

Everywhere seemed to serve the same food/drinks however they were reasonably priced and the people were very friendly. We didn't spend much time in the town on a night so can't give a true feedback on that. Skiing instructors and lift staff are fab and ours made our holiday, he stayed with us all the time and showed us the best places to eat/drink. Money is easy to exchange and we changed £ $ Euro.

Ski Slopes

Located on the slopes of the Rila Mountain, Borovets is a modern skiing resort with a good choice of skiing trails and cross country tracks appropriate for beginners and a fair choice for skiers of intermediate and advanced ability too.

Schools and instructors for skiing and snow-boarding are available in the resort. Other activities include snow mobiling and horse-riding.

During the summer the region tracks are marked out in varying difficulties for cyclists instead.

Things to Do

A must-see is the Rila Monastery, located in the Rila Mountain. Surrounded by ancient stone walls, you can see the richly decorated Monastery, parts of which date back to the 10th century, the 14th century Hyrelu Tower, the ornate chapel, the library and the residential buildings.

In the neighbouring town of Samokov (9km) you can experience authentic daily life, browse the History Museum and admire the impressive murals in the medieval Belyova Church.

Out and About

Hiking trails through the Rila Mountain reward you with picturesque landscapes across the Seven Rila Lakes and impressive views from Musala Peak, the highest point in Bulgaria.

The Rila National Park also has 4 nature reserves and woodlands, mineral springs and eco-trails.

Nearby Attractions

Outside of the resort many sight-seeing opportunities await in the capital of Sofia (75km) or you could visit the thermal waters of the Belchinski Baths in the nearby village of Belchin (25km).
