Nature places of interest
Medvědárium (Home of Bears)
Nerby the river: Berounka
Medvedarium (Home of Bears)
Town´s Hill, Beroun
This park forms a fowl-run extending 25 acres, hedged with wire-work, including inserted steel nest. This construction prevents bears from escaping. Moreover, the fence is protected with electrical enclosure containing 9 thousands of Volts tension, whereas in a distance of one meter approx., there is another fence containing six thousand of Volts. So, the escape of bears is improbable. This park could be proud on one interesting fact: the bears from TV evening fairytales (Večerníček) found here their home. There was a TV programme Bears´ Brothers.
Since filming time period they grew up, for sure and their lovely plays changed to power presentation. Anyway, they are no young bears, as they were born in January 2000.
