Some restaurants with local cuisine

Sanctuary for the bears in village of Kuterevo on the slopes of Velebit mountain is shelter for bears that are accidentally or due to poaching separated from their mothers when they were too young for an independent life. Such bears, nurtured with the help and care of people fail to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for independent living. Therefore, they never go to their natural habitat but stay in the sanctuary that is now a unique project in the world. In fact, only the enthusiasm of several enthusiasts and with the help of experts opened a shelter for bears and the eco / ethno-village for tourist visits.
