7 reasons to spend your summer vacation in Bansko!
Bansko is a place with a wonderful climate, incredibly beautiful nature, accessible wild forest areas and breathtaking views.
We, at Premier Resort, love summer days and want to share them with you.
Here are 7 reasons why it is a great idea to spend part of your summer days embraced by the beautiful Pirin Mountain.
1. Clean air and health benefits are the usual combination, while spending time in the Pirin Mountains.
Imagine in the morning, opening your window at Premier Resort and breathing mountain fresh air. Pirin National Park represents over 40,000 hectares with centuries-old forests. Part of the park is a protected area, awarded by UNESCO as an area of special importance for biodiversity in Europe.
This huge national park brings summer freshness to anyone who decides to spend time nearby. There are so many health benefits. Pirin air is saturated with oxygen, fresh and cool. Away from industrial areas or busy traffic roads. Recharges, vitalizes, renews. It brings a sense of freedom and something more.
The incredible combination between wild nature and cultural life is typical for the summer in Bansko. The musical events are numerous and bring popularity to the mountain town. The Jazz Festival is the most popular summer event, held every year in August. Who has not experienced a quality jazz concert on a quiet summer evening in the mountains, it is good to consider whether it is the time to experience unforgettable moments. Music is also part of the concept of Premier Resort. In August we organize JAZZY afternoons by the pool of Premier Resort, thematically and especially organized to honor Jazz Fest Bansko.

3. Rivers, lakes, springs - water treasures from the nature of Bansko.
Did you know that Pirin Mountain has 170 lakes with a total area of 18,000 decares? Some of the most beautiful lakes are accessible and can be seen with just an hour’s walk. Bezbog hut, which is accessible by car, is located right next to Bezbog Lake, which is worth seeing. From the Vihren hut you can visit Lake Okoto easily, as it is only 40 minutes away. Another 20 minutes and you are in front of Popovo Lake surrounded by forests and mountains, the views are breath-taking.
What could be a more wonderful summer experience than walking in green forests and jumping over streams? There are three big rivers around Bansko - Glazne, Demyanitsa and Banderishka. Three great treasures! And the whole mountain and forest is cut by smaller rivers and streams, which flow into one of the three. Water flows through the central part of the city, in special gutters to the streets, pleasantly cooling the air and bringing a unique atmosphere.
While walking in Bansko or in the mountains on the eco trails, you always hear the rustling of the river, as if this relaxing sound haunts you. Who does not want such a cool company?
If you decide to have a picnic, check the possibilities at Premier Resort - we have a special, elegant picnic basket that our guests can use. Comfortable and very romantic!
4. Sports summer in Bansko.
It is important to everyone to live an active life. But often in the cities we do not have enough time spent on sports outdoors or it might not be such a pleasant experience with the hot and polluted air.
The mountains surrounding the Premier Resort provide great opportunities for mountain climbing (hiking), for walks in the coolness of centuries-old pine trees, for mountain running and mountain biking. It is mountain biking that is gaining momentum in recent years in Pirin. Routes of varying difficulty, even for beginners, surround the forests above the Premier Resort.
You can join one of the guided groups of mountain biking or explore the area by yourself. Premier Resort also offers a fitness and a personal trainer for those who want to stay in shape during the holidays and prefer to play sports indoors.
5. "You are my beautiful forest"
The centuries-old trees of the Pirin Mountains are sung in folk art and not by chance. The beautiful peaks of the mountain are harmoniously combined with the greenery of the pines. 20 minutes drive from Premier Resort up the road to Vihren hut is the most popular tree in Bulgaria - Baikushevata Mura. Nearly 1,300-year-old tree is the only one to survive a massive fire that destroyed the whole area. The feeling of being close to this wonderful plant specimen is exciting and very grounding. 1300 species of higher plants have been identified in the Pirin Mountains. The Edelweiss flower is another symbol of the Pirin Mountain and is found on the high peaks, which are the first to meet the sun.
6. Healing mineral hot springs
Only 5 km from Premier Resort is the small village of Banya. The 75 springs with healing mineral water are the reason to call the village of Banya the Mineral Paradise of Bulgaria. This is the reason why we visit with great joy the pools with different water temperatures from 32 degrees to 42 degrees. The feeling of immersing yourself in a pool with the right (warm) water temperature is worth experiencing. It is even more pleasant to know that all the time the healing water works wonders with your body and soul.
7. Festivals of traditions and art.
Summer is the festival time. There are so many of them in Bansko that you should carefully plan at least a few visits to the mountain town.
For example, at the beginning of September is the culinary festival UNIQUE Bansko. 11 Bansko traditional restaurants - “mehana” or taverns are part of the UNIQUE Bansko tavern chain. They are honored as carrying the authentic spirit of tradition and offering the most delicious dishes from the region.
At this festival they will present their culinary skills on the main square in Bansko and will offer free tasting for all guests. You can visit the culinary festival with a short 25-minute walk from Premier Resort to the central square of Bansko.
You can check all festivals of tradition and art in Bansko, here.
It is a joy and a privilege for us to enjoy the summer in Bansko. Be sure to experience exciting moments, make new memories of mountains, freshness, music and incredibly beautiful nature.
We look forward to seeing you at Premier Resort!
