The Bulgarian ski resort Bansko is constantly in the world charts lately.

In November last year, it was named the best budget destination for ski tourism by the British Travel and Financial Services Company, Post Office Travel Money.

In 2017, the British Daily Mirror set the Pirin town seventh in the ranking of the top ten best ski resorts in the world.

In 2016 Bansko was included into National Geographic’s list of the top ten destinations in the world for the winter season 2016/2017.

See five interesting facts about the city, nestled in the arms of the North Pirin Mountains:

1. Bansko is situated at 927 meters above sea level. The highest point of the ski center, however, is at 2560 m. It offers 75 km of ski runs for winter lovers. The longest of its 16 runs extends 16 km. Ski trails have different difficulty levels, with two of them marked as black (most difficult).
