    It sounds great
    do you know of a nice village near bansko, where we can get off the train for a few hours and return to the city?
    thank you!

  3. Hi sir. We want to do this trip. Does the train stop in bansko?. Also can we bring on one huge duffel bag since are traveling for 2 weeks to stay in bansko. Not sure how the space is in the compartments. We wanted to add this to our trip. Please advise. Much thanks

    I’m actually doing this trip first week of June 2017. So looking forward to it after reading your blog!
    I’ll be taking the early train at about 8.30am from September all the way to Bankso.
    My journey will actually start in Plovdiv.
    The only problem i have had to overcome is getting back to Plovdiv that same day. I dould take a train going back but would arrive back too late that same day. That wouldve been the cheapest option. However I’ve decided for a taxi to meet me and my wife(both senior citizens from UK) to meet us at Bankso station. He’ll give us a short tour around Bankso and then get something to eat before heading back to Plovdiv to arrive about 5pm. Forgot to mention that the taxi will also pick us up at Plovdiv and take us to September for the train up to Bankso.
    Obviously i was looking for convenience especially as my wife was tagging along! All in all it’s costing us about 100euros.
    Shame there was no public bus from Bankso to Plovdiv that afternoon.
    But it my opinon when you want to do something that badly it’s difficult to put a price on it!
    kindest regards
