Central Europe’s only bear sanctuary is located a short journey northeast of Budapest in the town of Veresegyház. The Bear Farm provides a comfortably safe habitat for 42 brown bears and over two dozen wolves, most of which were rescued from harsh conditions in the wild. The huge animal enclosures are designed with the beasts’ natural instincts in mind – the bears enjoy man-made caves for winter hibernation and ponds for splashing about or hunting for fish, while the wolves enjoy hiding out among the dense forest.

You can see the bears and wolves from close, you can buy honey and get a wooden spoon with it which you can give the bears to lick. For newborned there is a bear nursery too!
