Bansko will substitute an old stadium with a modern sport centre The construction of a sport-recreation centre is being discussed in Bansko. The idea was presented before the municipal councils, the municipal administration and representatives of the hotelier business today. The sport centre will be spread on a total area of 34 000 square metres and will include a completely renovated football field with over 8 000 covered seats, a parking lot for 800 vehicles and halls for different sports, conference halls, reception desks, lobby bars, swimming pool, restaurants, bowling halls, supermarkets, shops and a hotel part. The project also plans to substitute the old flora in the park. The lake will become an ice rink during the winter. Bicycle alleys and an amphitheater will be also constructed. The initiators of the project have used ideas from the architecture of the Bansko part of the Zograf monastery in Aton. The decision or the construction of the complex was taken in 2009. It will be positioned in the place of the now existing town stadium St. Peter. The main goal of the administration is to supply a modern sporting site for all residents and guests of the town.
