How is Bansko, Bulgaria?


in Bansko, Bulgaria by @sebastian88 |  | 5 comments

I see that there are a whopping 200 nomads in Bansko, Bulgaria. Iโ€™m in Sofia, but aside from Bansko being cheap, I get the feeling that itโ€™s a retirement centre in the summer time. I saw a few Youtube vids but it looks dead. Whatโ€™s the draw to Bansko right now? Is there nightlife, or is it just a place to go hiking? Are there decent work cafeโ€™s? Is it a decent place for singles?

Since itโ€™s a hotspot Iโ€™d love to see some reviews on the page.

Thanks!

  • Sofia

    Sofia is one of the most amazing cities ever, it has old buildings because of the low economic status of the country, but the main cause is from the low number of tourists visiting this lovely country. The food is amazing and cheap, the population is very fun, but they are a little bit homophobics and racists (not everyone, but there are a lot of people who really are). Bulgaria has amazing views, parks, coffeehouses and of course the most beautiful beaches and sunsets, the temperature of the wa

  • Paris

    After a month in Paris I can honestly say I have never enjoyed myself more from a culture perspective. The eating, drinking, and nightlife is excellent. People often complain that French people are rude but they have it all wrong. They are very formal. Dining is quite different as it doesn't align with the experience in America. In France restaurants are a space you are invited into and the waiters and chefs are professionals who know how best to treat you during your experience. They are in con

    It is an OK place for staying for a few months, however after a few months, you have seen everything and realize the place is just a small town with a few things to do but not that many. Restaurants are great and stuff but besides that not much going on.

  • Edinburgh

    Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities and I've spent quite a bit of time here. It's charming, friendly, beautiful, and walkable, and has a range of cafes and coffeeshops with fast wifi. The downsides: it's pretty expensive (housing especially), and there doesn't seem to be much of a nomad scene. The general tech scene seems to be smallish but growing (CodeBase seems cool), but not many nomads seem to come here.

    Berlin is overall a great city to be. Food is cheap and everywhere, easy to go out and have fun/meet for business. Rent has crept up but still far better value than where I came from. Internet: 36 EUR/month get me 450/40 mbps (cable -> DOCSIS 3.0) Public transport is 2.70 EUR/ticket. No woman I know has said they felt unsafe. Some really odd, xenophobic sounding comments on here. Biggest downsides IMO: service quality at restaurants - not that people are rude, but they don't seem to particular

    I lived in Tallinn for four months. It's a great city overall. Life quality is excellent with transportations and everything else working excellently. I loved the fact that you can travel to other countries easily and inexpensively (Russia, Finland, Sweden, Latvia, etc.). At the same time, I think the city gets monotonous fast compared to other places where I lived in a similar size. Estonian people don't appear to be very active. It's understandable because most of them are hard-working and out
