     Area and Location
     This small town in Blagoevgrad region is situated just 6 km east of Bansko and 156 km south of Sofia, in a deep valley between Rila, Pirin and the Rhodopes mountains.
     By car, the distance from Sofia is taken for approximately 2:30 hours through Blagoevgrad. There are regular buses from two of Sofia’s bus stations: Central and Ovcha kupel. If you are not in a hurry, there is another, more imaginative way to reach Dobrinishte – via the narrow-gauge railway with its retro wagons from the time of the last Bulgarian monarchy, winding through the mountains. That way you can see the highest railway station on the Balkan peninsula and the place where Marilyn Monroe has started her reserve for dancing bears.
