Borovets is a lively resort with lots of opportunities for Apr?s Ski activities.

You could try tobogganing, billiards, pizza quiz, bowling, snowmobiling or a sleigh ride; all are locally advertised and should be booked on spot at an extra charge.

There is a good choice of bars in Borovets, like the Black Tiger /great cocktails/, Buzz Bar /it’s an Apr?s Ski Bar and also a disco at night/, Chilly Peppers Bar. There are many restaurants offering local and international cuisine- the Mamacita’s /a Mexican Restaurant, but in the morning you could get proper English breakfast/, Franko’s Pizza- very busy place and the pizzas are good/, The Blue /great atmosphere/. In Samokov and Rila hotels there are Night Clubs which are usually open after 10 pm.

A not-to-be-missed event is the Bulgarian Folk Night or the so called “Bulgarian village”. It’s a very good value for money as you get very tasty home- made Bulgarian dinner and local drinks, and also have the chance to hear local music and dances. Bulgarian folklore music is known all over the world for its unique rhythms, harmony and polyphony such as the use of close intervals like the major second. Bulgarian folklore music includes "asymmetric meters", which could often be understood as combinations of groups of "quick" and "slow" beats. All this makes this music unique and foreigners usually enjoy listening to it.
