*<see name="Dancing Bears Park Belitsa" address="Andrianov Chark Area, Belitsa 2780, Bulgarien" phone="+ 359 88 244 1377" url=""> was built by the animal welfare organisation Four Paws in 2000 and is located in Rila Mountain at about 180 km south of Sofia, 12 km from town Belitsa and about 35km from Bansko. The whole area of the sanctuary comprises 120.000 m². The park can be visited only in frame of a guided tour from 1st of April until 1st of December. These guided tours offer visitors comprehensive information about the sad conditions in which the bears suffered before they were rescued, as well as to raise awareness about the main natural requirements of brown bear species and its conservation.</see>
The main attraction is the nearby "Dancing Bear" park. It's about 14km out of the town, and the roads are in very bad condition. Finally, in 2007, the last three dancing bear in Bulgaria have been liberated, and now lives in this park.
Entry is free, the but Four Paws foundation relies on donations to survive (and hopefully to help fix up the road).
The park is closed December through March. The bears may be hibernating (some for the first time). April and May the park opens at 10am, and closes at 6pm. June through September the park closes at 8pm, and October and November at 4pm. Guided tours every hour.
