Bear Sanctuary on our doorstep


Bear Sanctuary on our doorstep

This is Baloo, one of 70 bears who have been rescued and given a 69-acre home in the forest on the edge of Zarnesti (10km from Magura), at the Libearty Bear Sanctuary. You can visit (during the summer) any day except Monday, between 9am and 11am. A fantastic chance to see these remarkable animals – European Brown Bears – at close quarters. The 30-40 minute visit will cost you 40 lei (€9/£8). Click on the photo to see their website for the touching stories of the bears, and more information about the sanctuary’s work.
