THE PERELIK PROJECT Print E-mail
Sunday, 12 August 2007
There are plans for a grandiose tourist complex in Bulgaria's biggest Rhodopi Mountain, where the the former biggest Balkan ski resort Pamporovo can also be found. The project, called Perelik, is planned to be constructed at the foot of the highest Rhodopian peak, Perelik, and consists of 200 km ski runs and about 100 km of ski lifts, Bulgarian-language Standart reported.
 
The construction works under Perelik started in the autumn of 2007 and will take about six years. The councillors said only ski runs and lifts would be constructed, not huge concrete buildings and heavy infrastructure. The project is estimated at more than 300 million Euros.

The Perelik project received an Investor First Class certificate from the state. An airport near Smolyan and a 100km three-lane road from Plovdiv are planned for construction, with state participation. According to the investors, the profits could reach 300 million leva a year.
 
The part of the project near Gela village is planned to envelop about 40 hectares (0.4 sq km), including the area near Shilestata Chuka peak (2188m).
 
According to the new concept approved in June 2007 about 35000 skiers will be able to ski at the same time down the hills of the Perelik region of the Rhodopes. Currently about 15000 tourists can ski, snow board and run by the pistes.
On the described territory the elevation will be increased from 1500 to 2130 meters above sea level, snow remains for good 6 months a year.
 
Two more golf courses will be made in different areas. “We visited Switzerland especially to see how the golf courses are made. The natural relief is going to be used and they will be visible from the ski runs”, the investors explain.

The resort centre is going to be in the Prevala area, between Smolyan and the village of Stoikite, by the main road to Devin at the altitude of 1,600 m. Lifts and underground railway will start there and take passengers to the main ski zones. The project includes about 1,500 blowers with the capacity to convert a million cubic metres of water fed by 16 lakes into snow flakes.

The concept contemplates cars to be used only to the approaches of the lowest ski zones and then the tourists to be transported by lifts, drag-lifts and skiing. 64.3% of the territory will remain occupied by forests, including 1.3% of protected areas. 86 lifts will be scattered all over the complex. From the Musayata area a lift might be put in to Greece but an agreement should be signed by the governments of the two countries.
 
Activities and facilities: golf courses, lifts, underground railway, crafts centre, 7 cultural routes, hang gliding, paragliding, snowboarding, cart entertainment village, all ski sports, biking, hiking, horse riding, restaurants, shops, etc
 
The Perelik project is intended to be completed in the period 2012-2014
