During the winter months, Bansko transforms into a bustling ski destination, attracting tourists and nomads eager to hit the slopes. 

The quieter summer months and shoulder season offer a unique opportunity to connect with fellow digital nomads and travelers seeking respite from the summer heat and crowds in Europe. This makes it really easy to meet people and make friends. 

With a low cost of living, affordable accommodations, delicious food and beautiful scenery, Bansko checks all boxes as a great digital nomad hub. 

It’s one of the reasons we keep returning to Bansko during the summer months. It affords us a quiet environment to recharge and get some work done but also meet up with friends from all over the world. 

Coworking Bansko

The owners of Coworking Bansko also run the famous Bansko Nomad Fest held at the end of June. This is another fabulous way to meet and connect with other digital nomads and entrepreneurs. We attended Nomad Fest in 2022 and had a wonderful time and met so many new friends. 

If you’re new to the digital nomad scene or working and traveling remotely we highly recommend attending this event to meet other digital nomads.

Great Alternative Coworking Options

Alternatively there are quite a few other options for getting work done in town. 

A handful of restaurants have fast wifi and are friendly to us laptop warriors working while consuming food or tasty beverages. 

Ginger Bar and Dinner

A few of our favorites were Ginger Bar and Dinner which is located in the Gondola area. It’s huge with lots of outdoor and indoor seating and an extensive menu serving pizzas, seafood and local dishes.

The service at Ginger Bar is pretty fast and the staff is nice. This restaurant is also laptop friendly, especially in the summer months. If the coworking was full we would see other digital nomads working at Ginger. As long as you’re ordering drinks or food you’re welcome to stay. 


Emar is located right in the heart of Bansko with lovely views of a park just next to the main square. The restaurant is one of our top lunch spots – the sandwiches and pizza are both excellent choices.

The seating is comfortable and the wifi is fast. It’s a great place to go with your laptop to work, relax or for people watching. They’re happy to let you stay as long as you’re ordering food or drinks, so you can get some work done in between.

Cafe Retro

This is a cute coffee shop in the center of town with an inviting atmosphere and lovely garden in the back. 

It’s quiet and laid back and the large trees in the courtyard offer shade during a warm summer afternoon. 

The coffee is excellent and they also offer some small cakes and pastries. A great quiet place to get some work done. 

Signing up to a cowork is one of the best ways to get integrated into the nomad community in Bansko. You can attend weekly BBQ’s, meetups to learn a new skill and participate in activities like wine tasting in Melink or hiking up in the Pirin Mountains. Joining a coworking space not only enhances your remote work experience but also connects you with like-minded individuals and gives you the opportunity to develop new friendships.
