The falcon centre is situated only eight kilometres from the centre of the city of Sibenik in the thick pine forest (Dubrava) and it represents the unique site where the visitors could grasp the mystery of falcons' life.
The pray birds have always impressed a man and hunting with a falcon is as old
as the ancient cultures of our planet.
The first resources dealing with falcon hunting were found in 5000 B.C. in China from where they spread to Europe across Persia and Middle East. The above mentioned skill flourished in Europe in the period of the Middle Ages. The invention of fire arms diminishes the importance of the falcon hunting. But due to the admirers of that activity the falcon hunting survives and nowadays it experiences a certain renaissance.
We are proud to continue the tradition of this noble skill revealing to the
visitors the secrets which a falcon master needs to know in order to live in
harmony with the wild falcon's nature.
For all of those visitors whose curiosity is not satisfied by just one visit, the Falcon centre offers various possibilities meant to get the visitors to know more about the pray birds and their environment.
