Situated at the foot of Pirin Mountains, Bansko is a small charming town in southwestern Bulgaria which is considered to be a real ski-gem during cold winter days. However, what many fail to see is that Bansko doesn’t necessarily should be your holiday destination during winter, but it could also be a great run-away during hot summer days as well.

Here are all the reasons why you should choose Bansko as your run-away spot during summer:

  1. It is a truly great place if you want to escape the summer heat!

As already mentioned, Bansko is situated at the foot of Pirin Mountains at an elevation of 1200 meters above the sea level, therefore, real summer heat is not a thing you should worry about in Bansko.  Yet again, do not panic, it is not cold either.  The weather temperature is around 25° during the day and, of course, a little bit lower during the night. It is simply perfect!

  1. You can still enjoy a cocktail right next to an outdoor pool!summer in bansko, bansko bulgaria, bansko during summer

You might want to escape the summer heat, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should compromise about drinking a cocktail and sun-bathing right next to a cool pool because, after all, that is what summer is about! And Bansko isn’t asking you about that! Most of the hotels in Bansko (and believe me there are a lot) have an outdoor pool area where you can enjoy just like you would on any beach!

  1. The view of Pirin Mountains is even more beautiful during summer!pirin mountains, coffee in bansko, coffee with a view of pirin mountains

Just imagine drinking your morning coffee with the view of the gorgeous Pirin Mountains and its green beauty during summer days, perfect, isn’t it? Well, that wouldn’t be possible if you choose to visit Bansko only during wintertime!

  1. It is more peaceful during the summer!

As already mentioned, Bansko is mostly considered to be a winter tourist attraction, therefore, while it is extremely crowded with tourists during winter that is not the case during summer. Of course, there are a lot of tourists from all around the world who visit Bansko during summer as well, but not as nearly as wintertime (or as other popular summer tourist destinations) which makes Bansko a perfect holiday destination for all those who want to truly get some rest and refresh their mind!

Bansko is small, but very charming place and that is not only because of the incredible views of Pirin Mountains that it has to offer, but also because of the old and traditional architecture that you can see only there. And because during summer the temperature in Bansko is neither hot nor cold, you could enjoy Bansko’s architecture to the fullest!
