Happy Visit! #libeartybearsanctuary #visitzarnesti

Created in memory of the Maya bear, the Libearty Sanctuary is today home to over 100 brown bears, all rescued from a cruel and abusive life in captivity.

 Recognized by many specialists as probably the best bear sanctuary in the world, Libearty covers an area of ​​69 hectares of lush forest, streams and ponds located on the territory of Zarnesti, the municipality at the foot of the Carpathians, near the city Brasov.

 Most bears in the reserve were rescued from the most miserable and tiny cages, being only a reason for "fun", tourist attraction. Many were confiscated from the terraces of restaurants, hotels, boarding houses, but some of them were held captive near factories, gas stations, or even a monastery. Bears that lived in circuses also came to us.
Each bear or bear in the reserve has its own story full of drama.
Please note that Libearty is a bear sanctuary, not a zoo.

The Libearty Bear Sanctuary has been named by Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel site, Traveler's Choice for 2020! It is the second time that the Libearty sanctuary receives this award of excellence after the one awarded in 2014.
