Medveotthon is just outside Budapest and easy to get to from Ivacs train station (from Budapest Nyugati plus a short walk, lots of useful signs). We went on a sunny day but early in the morning and the bears and wolves were really active so...More

We enjoyed a couple of hours here. The bears and wolves in the main area have lots of space and dens, a lake etc. Feeding the bears was great! The other animals were in smaller cages though, and some wolves separated into smaller pens which...More

If the concept is for rescuing the bears from circuses, that is great news. But the signs show that it is a bear farm and then on the actual location, it is marked as zoo. The definition is not clear, there are no english leaflets...More

They sell honey on the spot, and you can feed the bears, see wolves, reindeer, and raccoons, and have lunch on the premises. This is primarily a rescue/retirement home for old circus bears. The bears have a large, open space to relax, play, and eat,...More

It was a nice surprise for us. Very nice park for the bears and lots of fun for kids. It is not only about feeding bears with honey but enjoy the time outside. My son loved the small train!

The place is around 30 mins walk from the train station and when you get there although it's not small it's not a big place and doesn't take a Long time to see everything. Although the animals have a large space the amount of animals...More

Hey, it's not a zoo, it's a big ranch for bears. A nice bear-retirement-home. Quite a cheap, but such a nice place! There is a big territory, inside a lot of bear and wolf. You can walk around, there is also some other species. If...More

Myself and my partner made the 45 minute train journey and then walked half an hour to the bear sanctuary. It was extremely disappointing. There appeared to be nobody working there, so we could not feed the Bears with a wooden spoon. The place looked...More

Near Budapest is this place where you can see bears and wolfes together at the same time. Great with kids, they can give honey to the bears.

The farm houses rescue bears, so this is good family fun which also does good for rescue animals. You can see bears roam free, and see them up-close. Honey can be purchased from the shop in the farm, and all proceeds go back to maintaining...More

There is a train from Budapest Nyugati pályaudvar in a direction to Vác or Vácegres. You have to get off at Ivacs station (one station before Veresegyház) and from there you have to walk approximately 1,5 km. There are... More
