Borovets, located in the Rila Mountains of western Bulgaria, is one of the largest winter resort towns in southeastern Europe. In 1896, it was selected by the Bulgarian royal family as the site of their hunting lodge. In the decades after, it was developed as a ski resort, which has hosted Alpine Skiing World Cup runs twice in the past. There are 31 miles of ski runs coming down Musala Ridge toward the hotel zone; the runs range in proficiency level from beginner to intermediate. The adjacent high-altitude Musala Lakes are popular tourist attractions as well, particularly in the summertime when many people hike along the nearby trails.
