We offer you the opportunity to see our predators flying but also living with a wild rabbit, as close as nowhere in Slovakia, take a picture with a predator on a glove, the smallest excursionist to play in our children's corner and enjoy the unique atmosphere of this beautiful place full of human love for to nature. Sitting under a massive 150-year-old Sequoia, a rare Chinese Ginkgo tree or a four-year-old Linden tree will be a balm for your soul. Part of our work is also the treatment of injured predators, educating young people and helping to protect birds of prey. Welcome to the falconry yard and mini zoo ASTUR!
