If you are touring Prishtina and its surroundings on your Kosovo vacation, you should definitely visit the amazing and unique Bear Sanctuary Prishtina Bear Forest. The "Four paws" bear forest is located in the vicinity of Pristina, not far from the Badovc reservoir. This is the place where it is not only possible to see bears in an environment specially arranged for them, but also to learn their personal stories.

Not so long ago these bears were in captivity and displayed in cages at restaurants. Parliament banned the unworthy keeping of bears in November 2010. The bear reserve is about half an hour's drive from Pristina city center and is a 16 hectare national park near the capital Prishtina. The Prishtina Bear Forest is open to visitors from February to December.

Visitors can take a walk through the bear forest and see bears in their natural habitat. There are currently 20 brown bears that were previously kept as so-called restaurant bears in Kosovo and Albania, leading a species-appropriate life in large, natural enclosures. Address: Mramor, Badovci Lake, Prishtina 10000.
