The buzzing in beehives means much more than just collecting honey. The insight into bees removes the veil from their mysterious life and work.
If so, we would like to invite you on a unique adventure that cannot be experienced anywhere but in green Slovenia. In the cradle of modern beekeeping, where people still know how to take a wholehearted and hands-on approach to keeping bees. In coexistence with nature and in harmony with the peaceful Carniolan honeybee, a tireless Slovenian bee.
Take a walk on a beekeeping trail and make your leisurely way from one apiary to another.
Visit providers of beekeeping tourism and make a wax candle, or try painting a bee-hive panel.
Also visit one of the beekeeping museums and learn about the past history of these insects, on which every third spoon of food in the world depends.
There is nothing sweeter than honey. Authentic, home-made, aromatic. Try buckwheat, chestnut, forest, acacia, flower honey, etc. Furthermore, bee-keeping tourism offers unique culinary experiences. From gingerbread to mead and to the refined gastronomic delights of modern cuisine.
If you are looking for a truly special experience, you can also spend the night in an apiary, where you can be lulled to sleep by a true sonic bath of tirelessly buzzing little bees, the Carniolan honeybees. Try apitherapy and experience its positive effects. Treat yourself to an experience that you will never forget.
Concern for the environment begins with small acts – with the smallest elements of life: BEES.
Beekeeping is an extremely important part of Slovenia’s natural and cultural heritage. The efforts of Slovenian beekeepers have in recent years been directed primarily at preserving the native Carniolan bee or Carniolan grey, the second most widespread bee subspecies in the world. Slovenia is the only member of the European Union that has protected its native bee. Slovenia, homeland of beekeepers, initiate the proposal for the proclamation of World Bee Day within the framework of the United Nations.
