Map and orientation
Favorite thing: So, here is the map of the resort :)))
The main hotels, the parking lots, the pharmacy and the post office are marked there. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you would be able to see it better.
Borovets is not that big, so most probably on the second day you will have a quite clear idea how to get from one place to another. If you still have problems you can always ask locals :)
A couple of streets that are good to know of:
The main road that goes to the ski tracks. There you will find a couple of hotels and restaurants, the gondola lift and Biochim's office.
The street that leads from the main road to Rila hotel. Full of pubs there :)
The street that leads from Samokov to Rila hotel. It is something like a market area. Full of shops and open air stands selling cloths, CDs, ski, etc. Also, there are a couple of nightlife spots there as well as ice ring if you feel like skating :)

Favorite thing: Well, cards are not that popular in Borovets, so you will most probably use cash for paying your bills most of the time.
One of the places to obtain cash either via withdrawing it from an ATM or exchanging your currency for Bulgarian one is the office of HVB Bank Biochim. I was told that there is another ATMs in Borovets but I have not seen them. I think there is one in the station of the gondola lift.
I do not remember exactly what were the working hours of the office but I think it was something like from 09.00 h to 17.00 h.
The office is on the main road right across the gondola lift. If you have a look at the picture you will not miss it when you get there.
Here is the phone number of the office:

Favorite thing: This has just GOT to be the main thing that stuck out in my mind about my holiday, I know Bulgaria is still an up and coming holiday resort, and they are doing very well, but PLEASE look at this picture and smile, then you'll see why this holiday will ALWAYS stick in my mind. Thanks :- )
