Bosnek (Bulgarian: Боснек) is a village in the Pernik municipality of Pernik Province, western Bulgaria. It is known as the gateway for tourism into the karstic landscape of the Vitosha massif area. The village is downstream from a famous spring, called "living water", and is near the Duhlata cave, the longest in Bulgaria.

History

Bosnek is hundreds of years old, with the first written mention being in 1417. It is thought to be named after settlers (in legend two brothers who arrived barefoot in winter) from either Boshniachitsa, a locale in what is now North Macedonia, or Bosnia.

In November 2021 a fatal bus accident occurred on the Struma motorway near Bosnek, in which 46 people, including 12 children, died.
