Borovets Resort is located at 1300-1400 m above sea level, on the Northern slopes of the Rila mountain. Ever since its establishment in 1886 - when the first villa was built in Borovets - it has been a favorite destination for alpinism and relaxation. Two years later, King Ferdinand had his royal residence, Tsarska Bistriza built there and the rest is history. Known until the mid-20th century as Chamkoria, it is the first mountain resort in Bulgaria and the entire Balkan range. In the 60-ties and 70-ties of the 20th century, the resort was upgraded to become the biggest center for winter sports in the Balkans – surface and other lift facilities were erected, trails were widened and a large number of Alpine style hotels were built, following the latest trend of the times – the French Alps hotels such as Les Arcs in Savoiе.
Today Borovets is a year-round modern resort destination, featuring an excellent network of ski trails and lift facilities, comfortable hotels, a variety of restaurants and night clubs and countless opportunities for adventure and entertainment. The resort offers perfect conditions for mountain tourism and sports: alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country, mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, climbing and much more. On the highest slopes of the Rila mountain – in Marcoudjik ski center, at the peak of the season the snow cover reaches 2 m, creating exceptional conditions for extreme Alpine skiing and snowboarding.
