  • In 2001 Ivan saved two cubs. His dog raised them as puppies. Ivan also recovered a Dipper, Mirna ("quiet" in Croatian), in poor condition, Split Zoo. It flows at 44, his last years in quiet and free from any need. And this is the beginning of the adventure. Permanent staff and volunteers from all over Europe do a wonderful job of care and affection, and information. The refuge is also integration in the village, permaculture, renewable energy, the rescue of donkeys who have been abused. Do not hesitate to buy local products such as honey, cheese (especially smoked) and wooden souvenirs not originating in China: the bear's life better. The visit is free, these sales and the gift of an extra ticket (pq only one?) operate the shelter. Thank you for them.

  • Went to see the bears some remote place and the ones not something, especially because there were jobs, but a pleasantly impressed, although there were no little bear cubs but we did see many bears in the area, including fenced. Run by young volunteers in a good atmosphere and joy and all the surrounding space and signs explaining the bears, it's a shame that most not in English. In summary this is a chance to see brown bears in their natural habitat or less, without guilt and compassion as a zoo or circus.
