Far from the "civilization", in the heart of a genuine wilderness, there is a place where there are beautiful specimens of bears which live in peace in the bears Reservation in Zărnești.
The Reservation “Libearty” is the first natural reservation for captive bears in Romania. It covers an area of 70 hectares of lush forest, streams and ponds located in the territory of Zărnești. Currently the number of bears is 79.
Most bears were rescued from a cruel and abusive life in captivity. Every bear in the reservation has an impressive story.
Any visit here at the bear sanctuary in Zărnești, can be an adventure.
