Bansko Ski Apartment

Bulgaria is located in South Eastern Europe, situated in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula and boasts an old and rich history. Many of the world's greatest cultures have inhabited this beautiful country, leaving behind a veritable treasure trove of untold historical riches.

Its picturesque scenery is breathtaking all year round. From the stunning beaches and waters of the world famous Black Sea to the rolling mountains that are home to world class skiing resorts, Bulgaria has everything for everyone.


Bansko is situated on the edge of the Pirin National Park in an UNESCO heritage areas. The old town has an array of wonderfully traditional architecture. The centre of the village is just a two minute stroll and is home to many traditional Bulgarian restaurants (Mehanas), bars with live entertainment, curio shops and fashion, ski and sports hire shops. Bansko is alive with history, beautiful architecture and tradition - combined with all the shops, Mehanas (local taverns) and entertainment that you could want. The town square is approximately 15 minutes walk from the Apartments where many of these can be found and you will walk down Pirin Street, which also offers traditional and modern shops, supermarkets, ski shops, banks and Post Offices. 

The unique combination of a well developed mountain resort and a living historical town turns it into an elegant place for entertainment. Virtually every house has its own story to tell, which indeed can turn your vacation into a journey to the Bulgarian traditions. 

Discos and night clubs work without time limit, and usually close early in the morning 


The traditional Bansko taverns (called "Mehana"), with their exceptional charm and style offer local atmosphere by their cuisine and good selection of Bulgarian wines. Often you will find that these have been created from old family homes and the owner is also your waiter - therefore, they are proud to present their dishes and happy to recommend a menu for you. The menus are nearly always translated into English but be careful, the translations can be a little misleading on occasion! However, we have never had a bad meal and have found that the Mehanas are very child-friendly and welcoming. Most of the local "Mehanas" even offer live folk music. 

Many local cafes and bars offer refreshments.

It is extremely easy to eat well and for a very reasonable price - all over Bansko.


During the ski season, there is no shortage of 'Apres Ski' to suit all tastes. The 'Happy End' bar is just at the base of the Gondola and you can relax there with a drink or a coffee after coming down from the slopes. This becomes a busy night-time bar in the evenings. If you prefer a quieter evening, there are countless Mehanas where you are welcome to come in and have a drink or a coffee and children are also welcome. Within Bansko Royal Towers itself, there is a restaurant and bar and comfortable lounge area - or of course you can simply relax in the apartment  


If you fancy a night at the Casino whilst in Bansko, there are two - one at the 'Strazhite Hotel' opposite the Lion Bar on the main road from the Gondola and the other half way down Pirin Street on the right as you walk to the town centre. You can play Roulette, Black Jack, Poker and a selection of Fruit Machines

10-Pin Bowling

This is again at the 'Strazhite Hotel' next to the Casino. There are also pool tables, a bar/cafĂ© and mini arcade machines and is suitable for children of all ages. The lanes are not full sized but are neon-lit which adds to the fun of playing to the lights!

Ice Skating Rink

The ice skating rink is an amazing, new, state of the art facility catering for all abilities and with a large amount of arena seating. It is situated about 10 minutes walk from Bansko Royal Towers
