  • How to get from Sofia's airport to Bansko?

    by sana1010 Online Now Jul 5, 2014 at 12:03 AM

    HI -

    We'll need to get from Sofia's airport to Bansko, at the end of July afternoon (landing at noon).
    What's the best way to get there by public transportation? How long does the road take by bus? By train? (we normally prefer trains on buses).

    Thanks a lot for any help.
