Libearty Bear Sanctuary Zarnesti, Brasov

(4.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Watch the bears feed on forest plants, climb trees, and swim in pools at Libearty Bear Sanctuary Zarnesti, which shelters over 70 animals who've been rescued from illegal exploitation. The story of the sanctuary started in 1998 when its founder, Cristina Lapis, saw three bears caged outside a restaurant who were being used to amuse customers. The habitat of oak and hazel forest allows the bears to stay hidden in the bushes, except in the morning when they come near the fence to be fed. The sanctuary is also home to a she-wolf that was born in a zoo and rejected by her own pack. Watch a short clip explaining how the sanctuary was built before going to see its furry residents.

  • I have been there with my son for him to learn about the life of the wild animals kept in captivity, how that affects them and why we should respect them and their freedom. The people at Bears Sanctua...  more »
  • It's great to see these happy bears. They are well cared for, fed and have playgrounds where to swim, to wander. I love animals so I love this reserve that freedom for the bears who took an life difficult before coming here.

  • Everything was very beautiful. Bears are safe but the staff was very unpolitely. Nice place to visit for the animals/bears.
