Bansko Sightseeing:
The Holy Trinity Church
Bansko Town Centre
Located in the historical center of Bansko Town, the renaissance Holy Trinity Church in Bansko and especially its rectangular belfry have become a symbol of this picturesque mountain town in Bulgaria. Bansko is one of the most attractive and modern ski resorts in Europe, but in the same time the town captivates with well-preserved cultural and historic heritage. The church was completed in 1835. The belfry was added later in 1850. With its height it symbolizes the renaissance of the Bulgarian spirit during this period. House-Museum of Neofit Rilski

Bansko Town Centre
This museum is dedicated to the prominent Bulgarian renaissance enlightener Neofit Rilski. The display has been arranged in his birth-place house, located right in the old town of Bansko, opposite of the Holy Trinity Church and its impressive tall belfry. The house was converted into a museum in 1981.

House-Museum Nikola Vaptzarov
Bansko Town Centre
The museum dedicated to the prominent Bulgarian poet Nikola Vaptsarov represents an interesting display related with his life and works. The museum was founded in 1953 in his native house. The mother of Nikola Vaptsarov herself took part in the process of arranging the displays and decorating the interiors to make everything more authentic. On the initiative of the well-known Bulgarian cinema director Valo Radev a small hall for lectures and film-shows was added in the 1990s.

Medieval Church Dobarsko
Dobarsko village, 20 km. away from Bansko
The present-day church dates back to the 17th century but most probably was built over the foundations of an earlier medieval church. It has a small size. Its body is half sunken into the ground and it looks even smaller from outside. The church has no dome and no belfry. This modest architectural plan was needed as the Ottoman government in the period did not allow the erection of large and tall Christian temples. In spite of this the interiors of the church feature a true wealth of very interesting and well-preserved wall paintings. Some of them are unique and that's why the church has been included in the UNESCO list of world heritage sights.
