Help the cats
10/2020 • Kaverit
It's a place that is supposed to be a safe haven for animals,and it is, for bears and horses.
Two kittens that somebody left there have horrible eye problems, and are in bad shape overall.
It surprised me that volunteer who worked there warned me not to pet the cats, not because she was worried about them, but because they don't want the cats going anywhere near their facilities.
Nobody is even trying to help the cats, just convincing visitors to take them home.
Heartbreaking.

Really nice to visit for one afternoon trip
6/2020 • Pariskunnat
The place is really nice, the air is so clear you can feel it.
The bear rescue center is really cool, they help the bears, volunteers are not only from Croatia (we had a guide from Belgium)..
Bears seem really happy and fulfilled (they are bears saved from nature and could not live alone in nature).
The best but not the least - the place is free of charge, you can leave a donation if you want but it’s not obligatory..

very nice

My family loves this place. Every summer when we go to Croatia, we do our best to visit this place. Our children love it and we do as well.
It is not a big place and I don't think that the Sanctuary is well supported financially but the volunteers and other employees are truly amazing. They do it from love and that's what matters.

It is definitely worth to go off the highway and visit this place. It's a great place to have some rest on the way to the coast or on the way back.

And it's worth to mention that there is a nice family restaurant near by that serves fantastic and authentic food from the region of Like. Their soup is simply amazing but many other dishes too.I think it's called Butina.

Long and tedious drive by car - not justified for a casual tourist
9/2019
In order to reach the site that is located within a small village, it is necessary to travel on winding and narrow roads due to work on the main access road that is close to the passage of vehicles. The site looks well maintained with a young atmosphere of volunteers from around the world wanting to help raise awareness for bears. The bears on the site are not returned to nature. It is not mandatory for those who travel on a short schedule.

Bear sanctuary
9/2019
A lovely off the beaten track sanctuary
We saw the youngster and two adolescents (who entertained us with their antics for some time)
The bigger bears we all resting and were not visible - their cages are sizeable and tree filled so it is not like a zoo where they are there for our performance (which was also nice to know)

Great sanctuary- good welfare
9/2019 • Kaverit
This was a lovely sanctuary. The enclosures were huge and all bears there were rescue. Still asking for just a donation to see the bears. The teenagers were very active when we were there and saw the cub from a distance. The adult bears we didn’t see as they were hidden somewhere in their enclosure- we took this as a positive that they didn’t have to be on view the whole time. Would visit again. We spent 1.5hrs there.

Superb charitable sanctuary for bears - support it!
9/2019 • Pariskunnat
This sanctuary is run by volunteers and is FREE to enter - that is 5kr/ 75p less than the cost of a wee in Croatia! We visited mid afternoon and were fortunate to see all of the bears. Their enclosures provide plenty of opportunity to conceal themselves and sadly it is possible not to see them. This is wildlife. There is a small souvenir shop supporting the sanctuary.

About 90 minutes drive from Pritvice Lakes.

More than bearable!
9/2019 • Pariskunnat
Definitely worth a visit! We we staying at our accommodation at Etno Garden and made the trek across to Kuterevo as we had read the great reviews online for the Sanctuary and can confirm that they’re all true! The bears look healthy and happy and you get to observe them quite close up. Pick your time to go as some of the bears were sleepy but we got to watch one cheeky fellow, Bruno, have a bit of a wash in his pond! All in all a great experience and an activity worth doing (plus it’s a great cause to support - the Sanctuary is run by volunteers so remember to bring some cash to donate and support the cause (bears)).

THE way to see bears
8/2019 • Pariskunnat
While in a zoo bears often live under bad conditions these bears are really well taken care of. Whilst there is little explenations about the herritage of the animals, the volunteers can tell you more about them. The concept is great and I'm glad we stopped by. It's completely free so you should make a donation or buy something in the small gift shop as a token of appreciation. You spend here max 1 hour.
