Bulgaria’s proximity to Greece makes it an ideal destination for short or even longer trips from our country. Bansko, in particular, is very popular with Greeks. So when the opportunity arose for us to visit Bansko in order to attend the Bloggers On Top 2018 Unconference, we were thrilled. We booked our cheap flights to Sofia and then all we had to figure out was how to get from Sofia to Bansko.
It’s no secret that Bansko is Bulgaria’s most popular ski resort. Ski lovers from neighbouring Romania and Greece as well as the UK and elsewhere flock to the picturesque mountain town every winter. Yet regarding Bansko as a strictly winter destination is a huge mistake. There’s so much more in this quaint little town than its famous ski slopes and it is worth visiting all year round. You can find many articles about skiing in Bulgaria and Bansko ski in particular, so we’re not getting into this at all. Here’s our list of the top things to do in Bansko if skiing is not your thing or if you’re visiting outside ski season. Which you should, by the way.
