The oldest, the most expensive and the closest to the capital of the top 3 winter resorts in the country. Speaking of Borovets, Bulgaria got used to these three predetermined labels but even being truthful these attributes do not describe the whole picture. A fact of history confirmed – Chamkoria was the first centre of winter sports and leisure on the Balkans and for the last seven and a half decades now is known by the name of Borovets.

But due to its 70 km proximity to Sofia, the complex in Samokov municipality beats the competition by means of the ease and time of accessibility.
