So, how is it in Pirin River Ski, Fun & Family during Christmas? Carefree and fun, fun, fun....

Different countries and religions have different customs and traditions during the Christmas time, but all have something in common - Christmas is a family time, a celebration of love and togetherness that our family brings to each of us. That is why we leave it up to each family to celebrate their Christmas Eve on the 24th of December. Some of our guests prefer to order room-service. Some guests prefer to dine in our Restaurant. Some guests prefer to go out. According to Ortodox tradition no meat shall be eaten on the Christmas Eve, that is why our Restaurant offers this evening also especially made traditional dishes without meat. 

Then, on 25th of December we celebrate Christmas togehter. Yes, you guessed right - Party! Our Christmas Gala Dinner and Party became the highlight of our guests stay during this period. We have people who visit us during this time only because of our Gala. Why? Because:

  • the food is incredible - 5-course festive menu, including roasted turkey or mountain trout and local specialties
  • there is free open bar with high-quality alcoholic drinks and our legendary coctails
  • the folklore program is captivating - local singers present you with a face of Bansko you have not seen yet
  • live music and dancing - what to say? party, party, party till the morning
  • Santa Claus bringing gifts for all children up to the age of 12 - everybody loves this part! makes us all wish we were 6 again....

All this (including the gifts for children) is included in the price of the Christmas Gala Dinner and Party, which is 36 euro per adult, 24 euro for children aged 4 to 15, 18 euro for children aged 2 to 3 and 12 euro for babies under the age of 2.
