Why Bansko

Bansko is a picturesque town located in the foothills of Pirin natural reserve. Its beauty and natural treasures –  thousand years old forests, mountain lakes, mighty peaks, thermal springs, wild berries  make of it a peace of  paradise on earth. In summer it is sunny and quiet and it is a perfect place for a break from the city madness, connection with nature and self-discovery. Bansko provides all the tools to achieve a perfect balance of active and passive aspects of energy. We encourage our guests to maintain this balance by combining physical activity and relaxation practices.  How about having a great workout for the body and soul in the mountains and then relax in a thermal pool, go to a music festival or have a massage by a professional physio?
