Lake Pancharevo is located 12 km from the center of Sofia, towards Samokov and Borovets, between the Vitosha and Lozen mountains, at the confluence of the Bistritsa River into the Iskar River. On its western shore lies the resort village of Pancharevo and the Pancharevo mineral springs.

The area around the lake is a recreational and entertainment zone with restaurants, spa hotels, and sports facilities, primarily used for water sports (rowing, sailing), boat and pedal boat rides, fishing, and balneotherapy. There is a 1300-meter-long beach and a paid fishing pond. The "Pancharevo Lake" eco-trail, a favorite spot for mountain biking, also starts there.
