If you love spending time in nature and love animals, this trip may become your favorite! In this day trip where we start by visiting the largest Brown Bear Sanctuary in Europe. Here you will be able to admire more than 100 bears rescued over the years from a life of torment. In the second part of the day, we’ll set off together to the place called ‘Heaven on Earth’. This is the village of Magura, a special village surrounded by nature, where the houses are scattered on the hills. A place where time has stood still and technology has not yet found its way in. A place of nature, where you will again feel the joy of your childhood.
The Brown Bear Sanctuary – Home to more than 100 rescued bears
The brown bear sanctuary is located 30 minutes drive from Brasov, where we will pick you up. The sanctuary has become home to no less than 130 brown bears, rescued from captivity, from a life spent in cages or chains. Here they have learned what it means to be a real bear, to climb trees and bathe in specially designed pools. Their diet is determined by experienced veterinarians. They also get all the medical attention they need. Many of them will stay here for life, as they can’t readjust to a real life as a forest bear.
Also in the Bear Sanctuary you can admire other animal species, such as deer, peacocks or even some donkeys and dogs.
Magura Village or Heaven on Earth
We continue our day with an easy Hiking tour in Magura, the village also called “Heaven on Earth” because of its beautiful landscapes and the fact that technology has not yet penetrated here. In Magura, an ordinary day goes on as it did decades ago, in the quiet of the day and in the arms of nature. Only tourists come here from time to time to spend a pleasant day hiking or simply enjoying the outdoors.
