Uzana a snow romance right in the heart of Bulgaria

Miss BulgariaSki

It is the middle of March and we- Bulgariski.com team went to check out what is going on in Uzana- right in the Geografic center of Bulgaria. And YES it definitely feels like we' are just as we are in the heart of this charming and beautiful country. This is a sight that leave the traveller breathless. %RIMG1Uzana is a wide alp right on the top of the mountain. It is just 1250 meters above the sea level, but the snow cover is just perfect for a good downhill down the steepest slope in the site. It is 1000 meters long and is served by a 950 meter long drag lift. It was Friday and the just a few skiers were here, however the party is just about to burst the next day- Saturday, when everyone will come! It is like a hush before the storm. The snow is silently falling and the sky is a bit grey. %LIMG13One thing can be said for sure- Uzana is just perfect for beginners. Numerous small ski slopes are offering perfect skiing conditions for the snow sport. The slops are busy mainly during the weekends. %RIMG9However the moment you get up on the alp you can feel that the site is extraordinary. Extremely beautiful nature and favourable climate during all seasons. The site is situated right in the heart of Bulgaria. Marvellous oak trees are surrounding the alp. Now during the winter it is covered with heavy snow carpet and just the bended fir threes are jutting out like watch- towers surrounding the meadow in circle protecting the site. %LIMG14The road that leads us to the resort site is fenced with high fir threes bending from the heavy snow. The winter season in the site lasts until the end of March as it is just 1250 meters above the sea level. It was Friday and everyone was heading up to the mountain to spend the weekend among this incredible nature. The party is just about to begin. Just a few hours before dinner no one would tell that nights are so wild! %RIMG1Our team spend the night in hotel Prima S which is let's say the best Hotel in the site and definitely recommend it. The service is just perfect, the food is fresh and delicious, but the cherry on the top of the cake are Vlado and Tsetso! They can sing all night long, and keep the party alive! %LIMG5The show is what makes the resort so unique. And the show never stops. The party right in the centre of Bulgaria just never stops. Numerous activities are offered by the local enterprisers. Each season has its own charm- Winter- magnificent white and quiet. The skiers are occupying the site as it offers cheap and perfect skiing conditions for beginners. Spring- purple crocus are covering the alp like a huge carpet. The air is fresh and cool. The beech threes are just coming into leafs. Numerous hiking tours are offered to tourists. Summer- Open air parties and barbecues are entertaining the guests of the resort. An open air swimming pool completes the atmosphere. Autumn is just impossible to be described in words. One thing is known for sure foliage is very colourful and inspiring. Check out the programs organized by the local tourism authorities throughout the year in our events calendar for Uzana!

    Just came back from Sevlievo in Bulgaria. Drove up to Hotel Impulse in Uzana where I hired skis, boots and poles for myself and two children for just 17 levs for adult and 10 levs each child and used the hotel ski slope 5 levs each. Perfect for the kids first time as parking right at entrance to hotel and slope is 20m walk! Food in restaurant tasty and cheap. Perfect for beginners!

    WOW, thats all i can say about the previous week of my life. The snow conditions were amazing and the people were so friendly. The night life was always active and the rila hotel was especially fantastic. I loved the accommodation at the rila and i loved the way it is right on the slope. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the holiday and i would recommend this resort to everyone including beginners and experts. Overall, i had an amazing time!!!

    We just had a wonderful trip to Pamporovo. We were a group of 10 adults, and 3 small children (1 to 3 years old), who stayed at the Castle complex, in 4 apartments, for a week (7 days stay, 6 days skiing) Everything at the Castle was great, and the staff was very forthcoming and helpful in every way. The apartments were very practical, and equipped with all necessities. Not luxurious, but really good and adequate in size and layout. You should note though, that towels are not changed every day. Towels are not needed to bring to the spa area and treatments. The food at the Excalibur restaurant was typical for the area, and well prepared. The staff at the restaurant is also great. The Castle complex is situated 2-3 km. from Ski center 2 (Malina). It is of course easiest if you are driving, but there are shuttles from the hotel to the ski center and lift. Ski in-/out is possible at the backside of the complex. We had booked ski- and snowboard packages, and that worked out perfectly as well. The snowboard instructor was a true professional. Patient and very focused on making sure that all of us learned the moves, at our own individual pace. Everyone had a great time, and learned a lot. The area was perfect for us, as we are all beginners on snowboards. Had we been on skies, I suspect the terrain would not be challenging enough for an entire week. We can definitely recommend Pamporovo, and the Castle complex, and will be back next year.
