Visit Europe’s biggest brown bear reservation and admire these great animals in their natural environment! We plan our visit to the Zarnesti Bear Sanctuary early in the morning. During bear feeding time we increase our chances to spot as many bears as possible from the total of 99 available. You have the changes to watch cubs, teenager and adult brown bears live in action. Our tour continues with a visit to the mysterious Bran Castle. Learn about Dracula’s legend and let the medieval castle amaze you. The third stop is at a local Palinca Distillery. Here you will taste the traditional Romanian drink called ‘Palinca’. This hot spirit drink is 100% natural and is distilled from plumbs, apricots, cherries, quinces, grapes and many more. There is a wide variety of flavors to pick from!
