History

Borovets Town from the slopes
Borovets Town from the slopes


Borovets is the oldest Bulgarian winter resort with a history that dates back to 1896. Borovets was originally established at the end of the 19th Century as a hunting place for the Bulgarian Kings, Borovets gradually developed into a modern ski resort of budget and luxury hotels, haute-cuisine restaurants and seedy bars and an average network of ski runs and lifts along the slopes of the Rial Mountains, providing excellent opportunities for a whole range of winter sports. The resort has twice hosted World Cup Alpine Skiing rounds, while the Biathlon track is one of the best in the world.


Future

Super Borovets

The Super Borovets project is one of the largest and most expensive investment and development projects in Bulgarian history. The Super Borovets project will enlarge the current Borovets town to encompass the nearby towns of Samokov and Beli Iskar. The resort will be divided into three levels, the prices on each level will cater for a wide range of visitors. Samokov (Bulgarian: ) is a town in Sofia Province in the southwest of Bulgaria. ...


Level 1 or Low Borovets: A brand new development just outside of Samokov , this area will cater for the less economically well off tourists, but will have good connections and transport with Borovets and the main ski area. This project will provide around 5,000 hotel rooms. Samokov (Bulgarian: ) is a town in Sofia Province in the southwest of Bulgaria. ...


Level 2 or Borovets: Consists of the existing Borovets with extensive investment and development. This will provide around 10,000 hotel rooms (approximately what Borovets currently provides) and will remain as the main accommodation area.


Level 3 or Super Borovets: This will cater for those looking for 5 star hotels and a luxury experience, however it will provide no more than 2,500 hotel rooms.


The project started in 2004 and was originally planned to be completed by 2009, however several setbacks have delayed the progress somewhat. The current plan from the architects (subject to review and acceptance by the ecology team) is to expand the number of pistes by constructing 19 new pistes bringing the total ski-able area to around 90Km. To cope with the higher demand for lifts & gondolas 12 new lifts will be built. One of these lifts will be a multi-station gondola which connects Borovets to Samokov allowing skiers easy access to the slopes from the Lower Borovets development site. At least one of the new pistes to be constructed will take skiers / riders back to Lower Borovets ensuring visitors can ski back home whichever portion of Super Borovets they reside in. Samokov (Bulgarian: ) is a town in Sofia Province in the southwest of Bulgaria. ...

Resturants/Bars

Chilli Peppers

Chilli Peppers Bar
Chilli Peppers Bar

Chilli Peppers bar in the centre of Borovets has the right mix of a good selection of drinks and great music. The staff here are extremely friendly and the bar staff are sure to entertain when they begin flaring with the bottles. Free WiFi internet access makes it a popular choice for laptop users & those who simply must check their emails. The only negatives with Chilli Peppers bar is the floor, being tiled it can get extremely slippy when the snow starts melting and if you've had one too many you better watch your footing, and it only has one toilet between everyone. Image File history File links Chilli. ... Image File history File links Chilli. ...


Funkeys Bar

A small bar on the main street of Borovets, this popular bar is always busy. A wide selection of cocktails & shots are on offer for about 4lv a shot to 7lv a cocktail. Beer, Lager and other drinks are sold at around 4lv for a large beer. Their cocktails aren't for the faint-hearted, they pack a punch! In particular look out for the "Long Island Ice Tea" and their own cocktail "Elektric Lemonade".


The Buzz Bar

The Buzz Bar
The Buzz Bar

Probably the most famous bar in Borovets,[ BUZZ BAR [1]] set back halfway down the main street the bar itself does not charge an entrance fee, although you will be asked for 1lv if you wish to put your coat behind for safe-keeping. The buzz bar is split into two rooms with the first containing sofas / chairs where you can relax and regain some energy, needless to say there is a full bar along one wall. The second rooms is the disco / club part with the bar along the back wall. The DJ plays a variety of pop, r+b, hip-hop and dance music. Bulgarian Beers & Lagers go for about 4lv / pint with the imported bottles selling for 5lv each. Happy hour here is from 10PM till Midnight.The buzz bar has earned a reputation as being a top night out, and for good reason - the music is excellent & the DJs professional mixing technique makes for easy & pleasant listening, the drinks are cheap and the bar has an overall very relaxed atmosphere to it, you do not feel pressured into dancing The buzz bar doesn't really get going until about 11PM so it is recommended to go for a meal & a few drinks before-hand


Karaoke Bar

Situated slope-side in front of the Hotel Rila, the Karaoke Bar is a great place to have a bit of light-hearted fun and maybe show off your karaoke talent! The karaoke bar is great when busy, but lacks atmosphere when quiet. The karaoke bar offers a great range of national and international drinks both on draught and bottled. Drinks prices are typical here until you hit happy hour!Happy hour in the Karaoke bar is brilliant if you're low on cash, everything becomes "buy one get one free" and this can really help those on a tight budget! Happy hour is between 7PM and 9PM, then it comes back from 11PM - 1AM. Overall this is an excellent bar to start & end the night at and, if it has the atmosphere, you could quiet easily spend the entire night here and not realise the time.


Franco's

Franco's Bar is a great bar which is split onto two levels with seating on both. The food here is great and the drinks are pretty much the standard price throughout Borovets The food in Franco's is delicious as well as being very reasonably priced. All the football & rugby is shown here on Sky Sports and if it isn't being shown, just ask and the staff are more than willing to put it on for you. The staff here are all very friendly.


Places to go

Samokov (Bulgarian: Самоков) is a town in Sofia Province in the southwest of Bulgaria. It is situated in a kettle between the mountains Rila and Vitosha. Due to the suitable winter sports conditions, Samokov, together with the nearby resort Borovets, is a major tourist centre. In the past, Samokov was a centre of handicrafts and art, with notable figures like Zahari Zograf, Hristo Dimitrov and Nikola Obrazopisov. The town's name is a compound word of "samo" and "kov", respectively meaning "self" and the root of the verb "forge, hammer", and comes from the samokov, a mechanical forge powered by water, since the town of Samokov was a major iron producing centre during the last two hundred years (18th-19th century) of Ottoman rule of Bulgaria.

Plovdiv

Plovdiv (Bulgarian: Пловдив) is the second-largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia, with a population of 378,107.[1]. It is the administrative centre of Plovdiv Province in southern Bulgaria, as well as the largest and most important city of the historical region of Upper (or Northern) Thrace, famous for its ancient and diverse culture and millennial history. Plovdiv is located on the banks of the Maritsa river in the central part of Upper Thrace. The surrounding countryside resembles the great plains in the US, yet the city itself is particularly striking, since it, like Rome, is nestled in between seven hills. Tourists, however, are likely to count only six of those, as one of hills was virtually destroyed at the beginning of the 1900s, and there is only a small outcrop of rock left to show where it once stood. During its long history, Plovdiv was inhabited by many people who gave it different names: in Thracian: Eumolpias, Pulpudeva; Greek: Φιλιππούπολη, Φιλιππούπολις / Philippoupoli, Philippoupolis; Turkish: Filibe. In the Middle Ages the Bulgarians called the city Paldin (Пълдин) or Plavdiv (Плъвдив). The city was usually known as Philippopolis in English until the early 20th century.
