My husband and I visited in September on our way to Split from Krka National Park. We were so glad to have taken the time to find this centre! We learned so much from the passionate staff and the ability to be up close to these amazing animals was awesome! We have seen many animal demonstrations in our travels, and... More

We have visited a number of raptor centres around the world and this would rate highly with its peers. The owner is particularly passionate around conservation of birds of prey and has been instrumental in establishing this centre as both a wildlife rescue and education centre. The demonstrations last around 45 minutes and also include handling of some of the... More

I had some two hours "to kill" with my 7-year-old boy in the Šibenik surrounding on a really bad summer day (cloudy, windy, some rain). I was considering Šibenik aquarium or this place (couldn't do both) and am really glad to have decided on this one. Learned some really interesting facts about falcons and owls. Had a unique opportunity to... More

We read about Sokolarsky Raptor Center here at Tripadvisor and decided to make a visit in our way from Krka to Split. We had some trouble finding the way, and nearly gave up when our GPS lead us out in the bush. Luckily we didn't. We had expectations other than maybe too see an owl, but it turned out to... More

This raptor centre is an absolute must see for anyone with an interest in animals and their rehabilitation. It caters to everyone from couples to large school groups. They do not run traditional bird of prey shows as this is not the natural environment for a bird of prey. Rather they offer a more individual experience which is also more... More
