  • Interesting place to visit. Those poor animals was taken from their gipsy owners and released here to live in peace the rest of their lives. It looks they are in good hands now. It look like zoo but....  more »
  • Dancing Bears Park is a rehabilitation place for rescued bears. It was amazing to see these big animals peacefully sleeping in their natural habitat, in the lush green forest, well taken care of.  more »

  • I couldn't get the idea behind the park. It's a rescue zone for dancing bears from around Bulgaria, but besides of the fact that the bears are taken care of, it seems strange to me that so much money was invested in rescuing ~20 animals (some are blind or very old). In this country where bears are hunted legally, it would make much more sense to put these few animals down and decrease the hunting permits accordingly - without building such a big fenced park inside the forest.
  • Great idea, loved the educational part of it! BUT - in 30+ degrees Celsius, they had no cold drinks, no coffee, no ice cream for the overheated kids!!! I believe the park could be managed much better Also desperately need some road improvement - you are seriously risking braking your car on the way there! Health and safety - while our group was being told interesting facts about the park and the bears, a man from the maintenance team just sped by car through the group, drove only centimetres away from a lady?!? Only the great views and the idea of the park give me a reason for such positive review. I am regretting my visit
