We drove a car to go there and it’s the best options. There’s loads of curves but it’s fine! The landscape is breathtaking! They have a restaurant there where you can have food. Always take money instead of card.

The proximity to Bansko makes the park an excellent option for day hikes. The scenery is spectacular. We opted for some of the hikes to the alpine lakes. Popovo (or Priest's lake) makes for a great day trip. Drive through Dobrinishte to the Gotse Delchev...More
