The unique sanctuary houses European brown bears in a remote, forested spot beyond the Pristina since 2013 (entrance 2 EUR). There are 20 bears that were rescued from captivity by the charity Four Paws. All the bears here were once kept in tiny cages as restaurant mascots, so although they’re hardly out free in the wilderness, the spacious 16 hectares, semi-wooded enclosures of today are much better than the conditions they were once kept in. You can learn more about the bears at the impressive new visitor center.
