    People don’t want 48% of the park to be used for constructions. Ulen doesn’t pay its taxes and don’t have accountig reports for the past 3 years, but the government still gave them Pirin as a gift.

    To anyone saying this is fake and manipulated I suggest you remember, who's your PM, who owns the media and what the hell is going with Bansko. You realize that the politicians are mainly corrupted and you still take their word?? Idiots. But hey if you get payed today, it doesn't matter you don't give a damn about the world tomorrow and what will happen to your children, because of your immense greed. Remember this, Bulgaria is corrupted because of you, I hope you never sleep knowing this.

    This is false and misleading, the area or the only ski resort will be increased by about 1-2%, in order to build a second chairlift. I can’t believe so many people forgot to check their facts before running their mouths. Oh and the ecological commission will have to somehow compensate for the ecological impact of any trees cut down in order to make way for the chairlift, because that’s the eu law.

    Oui, ils veulent construire sur 40% de la territoire. Les commentaires dans le genre c est fake, c est pas toute la verité et etc. sont faites par des gens qui ont de commerces à proximité ou des gens habitants à Bansko. Car un tel projet va aller dans leur sense + de touristes, emplois, travail.
