Further details: Bansko town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has narrow cobbled streets with stone houses, 120 cultural monuments, museums and permanent ethnographic exhibitions. In the centre is The Holy Trinity church with its 30 m high bell tower and clock, splendid murals and woodcarvings. In summer hiking, climbing and horse riding are popular. Mountain bikes can be hired in order to explore this beautiful region. Local companies can organise trips in the mountains e.g. white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding. For après ski the traditional Bansko tavern ('Mehana'), with their exceptional charm and style offer local atmosphere with their cuisine and good selection of Bulgarian wines. Most of the local 'Mehanas' even offer live folk music. A visit or two to these is a must! Discos and night clubs work without time limit, and usually close early in the morning. As the cost of living is very cheap, your money will go much further here than in skiing resorts in other parts of Europe.
Chalet superb, clean and spacious, lots of room in hall for our ski gear. Short bus journey to gondola no problem, worth journey to stay at katarino. Prices in Bulgaria really good, will definately ski in Bansko next year and return to this property.
