Bear sanctuary in Zarnesti

by eltont

Hello all,
I will be staying in Brasov this June and am interested in visiting the bear sanctuary nearby in Zarnesti.Has anyone got any helpful information regarding it,for example whether it will be open to the public,and if so at what times and how easy it is to reach from Brasov.
Cheers.

I doubt it's open to the public yet (but if it is open, it's probably just 2-3 times per week -according to this interview with one of the founders:
http://crinanovac.blogspot.com/2007/04/interviu-cu-cristina-lapis-partea-2a.html).

It's easy to get to Zarnesti from Brasov, there are buses for that city leaving every hour (trip takes 40 minutes - one hour) and there are also seven daily trains (they take 40 minutes to get to Zarnesti).

I recently emailed WSPA about the sanctuary and they said it would not be open to the public until the middle of the year. They're having a fund raising challenge in May (http://www.wspa.org.uk/helping/raisemoney/bearadventure.aspx) but that's about it for awhile. They will definitely be open by this time in 2009 though!

Beware the bears

by survivorofabear

Hello!
My wife and I traveled to Romania in August 2009. Calmly, too calmly.

We had in our trip, set for camping, as described in all the guide books and by the Romanian people we had met in France and Romania.

Our trip ended in Brasov. After getting confirmation from the tourist office that should not have food in the tent, we took the road to Mount Bucegi. The car parked 2 km from Sinaia, the paying forest road that goes into the nature reserve, we were hiking all day.
The most beautiful hiking our lives!

Exhausted, we planted the tent next to the car, after eating a soup. The place looked like a village of campers.

The beauty of the place was not rewarded by the uproar caused by the Romanians, the serenity of their festivals were artificial, to ward off the danger that short, what we have learned regretfully.

Around midnight, in fact, one adult bear dwelled on our fate, crushing everything in its path, he grabbed me by the neck until asphyxiation strangling. He left me for dead when he grabbed the leg of my wife, wrestling him to the ground by its weight and claws.

Her calls were not moving any camper around and you know, in Romania, what happens to men who disturb a bear while having a meal.
Luckily, I woke up and took the warning whistle that resulted annoy our Eater, since It jumped on me and then had time to bite me twice more before my wife yells, standing outstretched arms, the cry of his suffering and hatred. The bear disappeared immediately but continued it's observation while we ran to the car which would save us on the road of the nature reserve.

Two months of bed rest, 15 operations of the leg, four months of hospitalization, nine months of suffering, life to recover. Exceptional survivors of the killer.

Tell you one another.

Bran - DRACULA's castle

by Aurorae

Not very far from Brasov, just a few kilometers away, there is a lovely little village of Bran, and its glorious castle, famous for the count Dracula, alias Vlad Tepes, who was staying there. That is where the famous legends and vampire stories come from, and Romanians surely knew how to take advantage of the popularity Dracula gave to this place...

A restaurant having a great history

by Fam_Stoica about Cerbul Carpatin

The present-day restaurant Cerbul Carpatin was built by Apollonia Hirscher between 1539-1545 in the style of western halls. The building was used for selling the products made by the handcraftsmen of Brasov; this was the reason why it was called The House of Handcraftsmen or Kaufhaus. From the initial Renaissance elements are maintained only the city's stamp and the blazon of Hirscher family which dates from 1545. Being burnt almost totally in 1689 and in 1699, it was rebuilt between 1840-1842, but in 1857 it suffered major changes. The wine cellar of Cerbul Carpatin is famous; all the Romanian traditional dishes are delicious.
