Pamporovo is located in the South East in the Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria and in heart of the Central Rhodopes. It is just a short drive from the Municipality Town of Smolyan and 240 km from the International Airport of Sofia and 80 km from Plovdiv

Getting to Pamporovo - A bus service runs from Sofia Bus Station to Pamporovo a couple of times a day. This bus also stops at Plovdiv. With the recent opening of the new Plovdiv Airport transfers to/from Pamporovo are significantly reduced 2 hours from Plovdiv.

There are also several local recommended companies who do airport transfers for very competitive prices. The journey by road is very straightforward from both airports etc and is well signposted in both English and Bulgarian. When travelling South from Sofia, Plovdiv or central Bulgaria the mountain journey starts at Asenovgrad and travels up past Narechenski, Narechenski Bani, Hvyona, Chepelare onto Pamporovo.

The route is clearly signed posted all the way up the mountain and after leaving Chepelare look for the right hand turn to Pamporovo. Follow this road until you reach a "T" junction. Turn to the left and follow the road until you see the Snezhanka Tower in front of you. The next turning on the right is the entrance to the Grand Monastery Complex.
