The oldest Bulgarian resort, Borovets, is hidden
among the aromatic pine woods covering the northern slopes of Mount Musala in
Rila mountains, 12 km south of Samokov and 72 km of Sofia. Its 90-year long
history, 1390 m altitude above sea level, and favourable climate with cool
summer and mild, snowy winter, make Borovets the biggest mountain resort in
Bulgaria. Mainly, the resort provides excellent opportunities for the whole
range of winter sports: from the alpine sports to cross-country skiing,
ski-jumps and biathlon on its first-class ski slopes, tracks and facilities.
Borovets is a major point of departure for Mount Musala, the highest peak on the
Balkans (2925m), a number of high-mountain chalets, as well as Bistritsa Palace,
built as a hunting lodge for Tsar Ferdinand.
