Housing

The complex

Worldschooling Bansko 2023 will take place in our community complex. This is where all the Worldschooling Bansko families will be staying, and where all the activities will be held. The complex has 4 apartment buildings which we will be filling up for a large part. We have the availability of a number of community spaces that allows us to assign every age group their own* space for activities, coworking, social gatherings, and hang outs. The gated complex has an outside play area for the kids to enjoy. There is also a spa area which can occasionally be used by our group at an extra cost. The complex is surrounded by nature, 500 meters from the city centre, and 1.5km away from the gondola (transport for skiing is available).

*Other residents of the complex remain able to use the facilities at the parent and teen spaces.
