The first mountain resort in Bulgaria - Borovets is located in the Rila Mountain, at the foot of Mount Musala, 70 km from Sofia and 10 km from Samokov. The resort was founded in 1896 when the mayor of Samokov built a villa for his sick wife, hoping the fresh air will help her get better. Gradually, other villas were built in the area, and in the early 20th century, King Ferdinand built three palaces (residences) - Bistritsa, Sitniakovo and Saragyol and thus the development of the mountain resort started.
