Unlike Bansko, Dobrinishte is not so commercial and not so developed. Still untouched, the resort is a popular destination for the people who miss the early Bansko. It is cheaper than the other mountain ski resorts in Bulgaria and not so crowded. Dobrinishte is more the village type, a quiet and peaceful mountain spot. It is a place of virgin nature and hospitable population, where globalization is not so obvious.
The little town has developed the eco-tourism and the winter-sport tourism, but there are also cultural landmarks in the area. The St. Panteleymon Monastery is only 3 km away from Dobrinishte. Another sanctuary is the St. St. Pavel and Paul church, built in 1835.
