Improvements to the organizational structures and facilities of the ski area on Todorka are being made annually to accommodate the increasing number of tourists.

A gondola lift replaced the minibus ride to the primary base area of Banderishka Poliana. Since 2010, the ski area has 75 km of ski and snowboard runs, 14 lifts and drags, that serve up to 24.500 people hourly.

The nearby village of Banya, only 5 km from the town, is known for its 27 thermal mineral springs. People prefer to rest in the springs after skiing for hours in the slopes of Pirin mountain.

There are bus connections available to take tourists to most cities in Bulgaria, like Sofia, Plovdiv, Blagoevgrad, Gotse Delchev, Razlog, among others. Tourists can also find travel agencies to go on daily tours all around, by snowmobiles. The location is ideal for special exploration and sport activities.

However, the large portion of unfinished apartments, due to the global recovery and the more realistic pricing, are eventually attracting more buyers from all over Europe.

In the hotels you will find facilities such as swimming pools, spa, beauty and massage boutique… and all at really affordable prices for everyone. All within walking distance of the city centre and the gondola.
