Bansko Local Customs: 6 reviews and 7 photos


Banski starets(Бански старец) is kind of sausage very popular for that region and it has some specific spices. They use it as an appetizer as well as it participates in some main dishes.

A funny story about the name:
Try to put "бански старец" in google translate and you'll get "old swimsuit" because banski means swimsuit and starts means old man. Actually the real translation is"An old man from Bansko".

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
