The Imperial Eagle Conservation Centre was opened in 2009 in the town of Topolovgrad. It was created by initiative of the BSPB with support by the Municipality of Topolovgrad and by the Haskovo Restoration and Development Union, and received financial assistance from the PHARE Transboundary Cooperation Program and from the GEF Small Grants program.
The objective of the Centre is to inform the local people and the visitors to the region about the wonderful nature and rich biodiversity of the Sakar mountain, and, also, about the symbol of these parts - the Imperial eagle. Involving Bulgarian and foreign tourists who wish to enjoy the preserved nature, the wild birds and the animals, the traditional customs and cuisine is of key significance for the sustainable development of the region.
The Centre, intended mainly for education, hosts an interactive exhibition with interesting and entertaining presentations for the visitors of the most typical animal representatives in Sakar and the life of the eagles. The building provides a venue for lessons and discussions dedicated to nature conservation and to birds.
It is open for visitor every business day from 8.00 to 17.00 hours (with a break between 12.00 and 13.00 hours), and the entry fees are BGN 2 for adults, 1 for schoolchildren and 0.50 for children of up to 7 years old. Entry for children and schoolchildren is free each first Thursday of the month.
