Beautiful and majestic
While wandering through Bansko's quiet streets, you will find a sense of peacefulness that emanates from Pirin's peaks, which surround the town. And you will feel like getting closer to this dream-like scene and becoming part of it. Devastatingly beautiful and majestic, towering its marble breast towards the azure sky, Pirin rewards each of it's guests with generosity. Every encounter with the whetstone giants, crystal-clear lake waters, ski slopes and peaked ridges is full of rapture and delight! Silent and secretive the mountain not only charms but with a quiet force invokes respect even in the most experienced mountaineer.
To preserve this exceptional treasure to Science and future generations the Pirin National Park was founded on 100 000 acres, including all the northern Pirin from the Predela pass to the Popovi Livadi area to the south - virtually the most beautiful and visited part of the mountain. Here is the domain of the highest peaks, the venerable white firs, the edelweiss and the wild goats. Here are more than 180 lakes, where Nature has gathered half of Bulgaria's flora and fauna. The sheer faces, the high altitude slopes and vast lands are an excellent place for mountaineering, skiing and trekking. The Pirin National Park is included in the UNESCO Convention for the Preservation of World Wildlife Heritage. Therefore Pirin belongs not only to Bulgaria, but also to the world.
Hospitable and harsh, mighty yet powerless, the mountain is not able to defend itself when mercilessly attacked and hurt. Loved by everyone, Pirin must be taken care of by all of us, so that the magic of its spell continues to be cast now and forever.
