Bansko, once a community mainly of stockbreeders and traveling traders, has become an international center of winter and summer tourism. The mountain tops near the city, the numerous lakes and the age-old pine forests make it a popular area for recreation. Bulgaria’s share of European winter tourism is growing steadily and Bansko is increasingly competing with ski resorts in France and Switzerland for relatively low cost, but not quality.
