Zărnești, Romania


Far from the "civilization", in the heart of the genuine wilderness, there is a place where there are beautiful specimens of bears that 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 on the reservation has an impressive story.
Any visit here at the bear sanctuary in Zărnești can be an adventure.
To visit the reservation, you can take a Freedom train ride, which makes several stops along the way where you can see bears from a few meters and you can take pictures.
