Travel guide to Borovets
Rila mountains
Rila mountains
Borovets is Bulgaria's oldest winter resort dating back to 1896 and often hosts international alpine sporting events. There are 45km of pistes including those on and around the Moussala mountain, the peak of which is reached by a long cable car ride (about 20 minutes if I remember correctly). The town is fairly remote and therefore facilities are all on-site including a vibrant nightlife with the Buzz Bar and the wonderfully named Happy Duck being two of the popular places for apres ski.

It is understandably very quiet in the Summer when many of the businesses are closed but it still attracts a number of visitors (like myself) who enjoy the relaxation of peaceful walks around the pine clad slopes of the surrounding area.

Borovets is located in the Rila Mountain range, about an hours drive away from the capital Sofia, the closest town is Samokov about 12km away. The Rila Monastery is quite a drive from Borovets but it is well worth the journey. [edit text]  [editors]
