Perelik project for Pamporovo, Chepelare and Smolyan A grand project, called Perelik, plans to connect the Perelik peak in Pamporovo with the Mechi Chal peak near Chepelare. According to the mayor of Smolyan, the realisation of the project will form Rodopi Mountain as a tourism centre with three main tourism bodies - Mechi Chal, Pamporovo and Perelik. The territory plan of the new resort is ready. The assessment for the environmental impact has already received the approval of the Ecology Ministry. We hope that we will start the realisation of the project during the summer this year and will finish until 2007, said the Mayor. The Perelik project is stressing on the building of ski pistes and equipment for around 55 million Euro and the hotels will be build in Smolyanski ezera and Raikovski livadi sites. At the moment Pamporovo resort has almost 18 kilometres of ski pistes and 4,920 beds. The plan is additional 29.8 kilometres ski pistes and the equipment to be constructed and the number of beds to increase with 8000. The start of the procedure for choosing of investor was announced on 15.04.2006 by the mayor of Smolyan Dora Yankova. The municipal is obliged to offer free access to all the needed information to everyone interested in it. The documents can be submitted until 31.05.2006. More information on the subget read here!

    Over the past three years I have seen the whole area between Smolyan / Pamporovo and Stoykite change dramatically. Tens of millions have been invested in the construction of Luxury Hotels and apartments to facilitate the influx of people who will I am sure take advantage of this fantastic investment oportunity. Well done to Dora and her colleagues. Vic Snowden

    A very exciting time for Smolyan, and the surrounding villages, the area has so much to offer, and I am sure it will bring much properity to the area. As a developer, who has already invested in both Gela and Stoykite, my main concern is that the beautiful nature is not devastated and that any developments must be eco friendly, and maybe for evey hcetare of trees that are removed, at least the same amount are replanted, to maintain an ecological balance. Your slide show and pictures show this area so well. Good luck to all involved, if we can help in any way please contact me. Well done
