Perched more than 1.2 miles above sea level, the Town of Bansko was at once old medieval and cosmopolitan. On Town Square, log cabins /locally called guest houses/ from the 19th century share the boardwalk with prime examples of contemporary Western architecture. Locally-owned boutiques with runway fashions rub elbows with Western shops stocking t-shirts and lariats. Galleries abound with artwork as diverse as downtown itself, from historic scenes of Mountain Men and villages to abstractions by blue-chip masters. A plethora of restaurants plates a commensurate array of culinary adventures, from choice meats sourced locally to culinary creativity rivaling most metropolises.

Small in size but not personality, the town spans 2.9 square miles. Tucked at the foot of the Pirin mountain on the north side, bordering the Pirin National Park /UNESCO heritage site/.

Generosity and gratitude course through the community.

While juxtapositions make Bansko an ever-interesting patch of Bulgaria, its true heart is the harmony of people and place.
