Plunge into the secret underwater world of Tarka and Luna, the otters. Get up close to a brown bear. Join in with a colony of isards, watch the playful squirrels and the cunning foxes. Discover the mysterious world of a wolf pack.
All is arranged so you can get to know their lives better, the keepers will help with explanations, then follow the animal tracks path and make your own molds for an unforgettable souvenir to take home. After a visit here you will have another way of looking at nature.
