Au programme

To this day, our organization has bred and released back to the nature 75 barn owls.

We will start the tour by a short on lecture on how our shelter operates to boost population of various endangered species of birds of prey, with the focus on barn owls. Then you will learn about unique physique of owls, their habits, and how they differ from other birds of prey. Our shelter is home to couple dozens owls, namely: barn owls, little owls, eagle owls, great horned owl, tawny owl, long-eared owl, snow owl, and great grey owl. You will be able to see them all in our aviaries and freely sitting down in the rescue center's garden.

Did you know the snowy owl Hedwig in the Harry Potter movie was in fact a male "actor"? Or that owls are amazing quiet flyers? Or that they can turn that heads around by 270 degrees? Come to our shelter, and learn why is that so!
Other things to note
This is and all-weather event. Even though this is mainly outdoor activity, there is a garden house providing cover from an incidental rain from which you can still fully participate in the whole event. We also have umbrellas and blankets for everybody.

This was one of the best Airbnb experiences I have experienced! Even if you are not a huge follower of birds this experience will definitely satisfy any adventurous needs while traveling to Czech Republic! Being an American, it was really cool seeing the bald eagle up close and personal. Each of the owls had their own unique characteristics and Petr was very knowledgeable and answered all questions I had. They went out of their way to make sure you were able to take adequate pictures and made it very enjoyable!

I was in the first group to participate in this new 'Meet the owls' experience at Penthea. It was a wonderful and engaging experience and exceeded all my expectations. The whole family was very friendly and obviously care a lot for their birds (owls, falcons, kites, eagles, vultures, etc.). Petr told us lots of interesting facts about owls and we got to see many different species, which were all incredibly cute. We could take photos and videos, and we also saw several examples of how Petr and his wife train the eagles and falcons outdoors. Penthea is involved in important breeding and conservation work and I was glad that I could support them through this experience.

For someone who loves the hard species, I was sooooooooo happy to have come across this event during my stay in Prague - who would've thought!! When we arrived, we were greeted with such a warm welcome on a cold day! As well as blankets, biscuits, tea or coffee and the BEST mead I've ever had (for real.. 😭). The owls were absolutely gorgeous.... And it was hard not to fall in love with their eyes 😍 the knowledge that was shared with us also let us appreciate them on a deeper level. We even watched them fly from one side of the room to the other. As well as listen to their calls! It was honestly amazing.... My partner got super jealous actually and we hope to come back for another round at this wonderful organisation!! Secondly, we were super lucky enough to also have a small taste of the birds of prey event such as their falconry, seeing the vulture and also the American bald eagle..... WOW...... Unbelievable. First time in my life to be so up close to such gorgeous animals. And in so thankful for this experience!!!!! See you guys again soon ♡♡
