Over the past several years, Bear Sanctuary Prishtina has become one of the TOP destinations for local and foreign visitors.
Only a 20 kilometres drive from Prishtina, the sanctuary is located in a natural paradise where visitors can spend their day enjoying the outdoors while observing the rescued bears foraging for food, wading in their pools, or napping in the brush.
