Can only find really old info on Borovets mainly people complaining about people trying to get them to drink in their bars and strip joints and not feeling safe walking in the dark!

Any info on good ski hire, bars and restaurants ...

Sorry for all the questions, getting excited now Cheers

I've only been to Bansko once and wouldn't go back because of the morning queues for the gondola.. There are queues in ...

I've only been to Bansko once and wouldn't go back because of the morning queues for the gondola.. There are queues in boro but nothing like Bansko in the morning and you have more than on option in the morning. Enjoy.

There can be quite a few people trying to get you into their bars for dinner, I just smile and keep walking. I wouldn't say it makes me feel unsafe. Titanic is a lovely little bar at the bottom of the slope to the left as you come out of the Rila.
