Bansko holidays 2020

If your idea of a dream holiday entails barrelling down an alpine ski run, dangling precariously from a cliff face or hiking across challenging terrains, then may we alert you to the endless possibilities of holidays in Bansko. However the hugely popular Bulgarian destinations isn’t all about daredevil leisure pursuits, as those seeking more genteel and specifically, cultural interludes away from the trials and tribulations of everyday life will be equally well catered for should they opt to venture in this Eastern European direction for their summer 2020 holidays. With a history and culture which can easily be traced back to the 10th century, a vibrant folkloric tradition and special culinary treats which mark it out as somewhere completely different, Bansko’s general look and feel will doubtless appeal to many tourists looking for something a little off the beaten holiday path.

Top attractions

Discovered nestling in the foothills of the Pirin Mountains, the ski resort of Bansko has curried a lot of favour with both new and seasoned travellers to this region of Bulgaria in recent years, and it’s not difficult to see why. Effortlessly combining more snow-orientated endeavours with those of history and culture-absorbing, Bansko is proving the perfect blend of destination for those seeking out an expansive – and indeed, eclectic – mix from their holiday itinerary. Despite skiing arguably being the main draw (and snowboarding, just for the record), there’s a raft of alternative attractions to be experienced in one way, shape or form when visiting Bansko on holiday. Take for example Rila Monastery, Yagodinska Cave, the Dancing Bears Rehabilitation Park and the sandstone pyramids of Melnik; all of which are within a short travelling distance for those holidaying in Bansko.

OK. We hold our hands up here. Perhaps unsurprising to learn, the ski resort of Bansko (situated approximately 925 m above sea level) doesn’t have access to a beach. But hey, sand is sooo overrated when you’re instead surrounded by snow and ice. So let’s not get hung up on this admittedly inescapable (yet very small) detail; and jump to the ‘Wine and Dine’ section beneath.
