 Great for families, Bansko has something to offer persons of all ages and interests, from museums and monuments to bars, casinos and nightclubs. Bansko is situated at the foot of the Pirin Mountains and is an irresistible combination of wonderful mountain ranges and stunning scenery as well as Old World charm and a modern infrastructure. It is on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites for its beauty. Surrounded by the Pirin, Rila and Rhodope mountains, 95 km from the capital of Sofia, the ancient town of Bansko is a thriving mountain resort with a population of around 10,000. The skiing season starts in mid-December and lasts until mid-April when the town reverts to a summer resort with superb opportunities for hunting, hiking, fishing, golf and sightseeing.
