Borovets night life

Borovets has much to offer for the skiers looking to party. Borovets is one of the best ski resorts in Bulgaria for night life. Generally the prices in the discos or bars are cheap as usual in Bulgaria. Most of the places around offer 'happy hour' and free drinks. Therefore, be careful with the quantities!

The Bulgarian national alcoholic drink called Rakia might be too strong for you. The bar-people speak English, so you will have no problems with the communication. The finest Bulgarian beers are Astika, Zagorka, Kamenitza. These are also cheap and available on tap or in bottle. Now world famous brands like Stella Artois and Amstel are produced in Bulgaria and these are available in most bars at good price.

Imported beers are available too, but approx. two times more expensive than the Bulgarian ones. The Bulgarian wine is world famous for the good quality and reasonable price, so wine-lovers can be prepared to buy some more before leaving Bulgaria. Music at the discos is mostly the latest dance hits and all-time classics in the Karaokes. Ask the DJ to play your favorite song.

    I went to borovets for the first time last year and thought it was absolutely great. The night life was also crazy! happy hours for 3 hours one after another for different pubs. All that makes for a night to remember! The Buzz bar was great and also a club i went to inside the samokov hotel. Oh and for food, the Black Cat Restaurant was amazing.

    Borovets was incredible, just got back from an awsome ski holiday, snow wasn't great but we made the best of it. 2 places that I would definately recommend to every1 going to Borovets, Revolution, wow! What a fantastic apres ski bar, with its live band playing when you get off the slopes and friendly staff, not to mention hot! this is the perfect place to spend your days and nights, trust me, you won't be let down. 2nd place is Chilli Peppers, not just a great party venue but the food is mouth watering and again an excellent choice for apres ski and dancing the night away, stick with these 2 places and you can't go wrong. I hope you have as good a time as I did, thanks to every1 in Borovets that made my holiday what it was and im looking forward to seeing you all next. Ciao! x

    Just got back from Bulgaria end of February 2007 had great snow and sun but nearer the end of the week the sun was making it slushy around the bottom slopes. People are very friendly and helpful, there are a few touters outside bars but nothing to be worried about. Not much bartering going on in shops. Also a few exotic places but you never really notice them. The ice was a big problem, its ok when youve got your rubber soles on but when you have your ski boots on it can get pretty hairy. Good places to eat are Chilli Peppers, Frankos (pizza and steak), The Blue (steak), Red Dragon (Chinese, big portions and v cheap), Mamacetas is supposed to be good (Mexican) but found they tried to cram too many people into the restaurant and even though we booked they didnt save our reservation. If you like pizza you cant go wrong in Borovets, wouldnt have the burgers tho and all of their chicken seemed pink but our tummies were ok so think thats just what it looks like. Places to drink, Funkys and Frankos and Chilli Peppers we really liked. Stayed at the Edelweiss which is cheap and cheerful but you get what you pay for, shower was tiny and could hardly bend down and single beds werent very comfy. To keep your room for the full day on departure day was nearly 25 so wasnt worth it as check out is 12 noon. Only tried out Hotel food for breakfast and they had a selection of breads, cereal, fruits and cold and hot buffet stuff which looked ok. My recommendations are to stay locally because we had to get a taxi every morning and night, so we hardy every went home after apri ski and just stayed out in our ski gear, but it would have been nice to get changed but we were far too tired to go home and come back again. Try get a hotel with a bath Change money at hotels they give a good rate and are safe (Most cash machines dont use the new chip and pin we took cash) Fly into Sofia it will make your transfer shorter If you havent got all your gear like hats, gloves, sunglasses and sox or even salapets and coats you can buy them all over and at quite a cheap price, even your own ski boots are cheaper. When you first join Ski School you have to do a little test down the nursery slopes then they put you in groups. After the first day the instructor asked if people wanted to go up or down, a couple of our group went up but also four came down from the advanced group and they were more beginners than intermediates and that was a real problem because we ended up standing around a lot of the day waiting for them. I actually think there should be a low intermediate and higher intermediate stage. This is a great place for beginners and intermediate skiers but advanced would find limited slopes. Dont get het up on the first day (Sunday) which is when most ski schools start, once you get your boots and get onto the slopes the instructors will look after you but it is a bit of a shove and push and very busy but the following days are really quiet. We all agreed with our instructor to start at 9.15 every morning which missed the rush to the gondola and everywhere was nice and quiet and also went for lunch early so the slopes were quieter later. Hope this helps!
