Bansko



Hugged in the warm embrace of the Pirin Mountains is Bansko, a museum town alluring tourists all year round. Since 1979 this town has been acknowledged as one of international significance to the tourism industry. Equally attractive during all 4 seasons, it offers various recreational resources. The domestic and international popularity of Bansko finds its roots in the perfect conditions for ski tourism combined with original folklore and old style Bulgarian architecture; stone houses that are guarded by high walls and solid double gates.

The majestic church ‘St. Troitsa’ (1835), made of granite, marble and brick masonry rises in the center of the town. Its interior astonishes with its grandeur, as well as with its its iconostasis. All the icons were created by Dimitar Molerov, a native of Bansko who graduated in Vienna and established an icon painting school together with his son. Another sight to see is the old church, ‘Deva Maria’ (1808). Its iconostasis ranks among the few in the Balkans with such high artistic value.
