Borovets is the oldest Bulgarian winter resort with a history that dates back to 1896. Borovets was originally established at the end of the 19th Century as a hunting place for the Bulgarian Kings. Borovets gradually developed into a modern ski resort of high class and luxury hotels, haute-cuisine restaurants and an excellent network of ski runs and lifts on the slopes of the Rila Mountains, providing excellent opportunities for a whole range of winter sports.
