Over 230 years ago, a beehive stood in the idyllic village of Breznica. At an early age, Anton Janša used to open the hives, where he observed the life of the bees and helped his father in beekeeping. Later, his life led him to Vienna where he was named the first real teacher of apiculture at the apiculture school after he impressed the empress with his vast knowledge and understanding of bees.
Today, a reconstruction of Janša’s beehives, the first home of Janša’s bees, stands in a meadow along a path in Breznica. Learn about the beekeeping beginnings in a guided tour of the beehives and the old decorative beehive panels. To the delight of your taste buds, you can taste honey-wine at the beehives.
Slovenians and bees have formed a loving bond ever since their first encounter. We have built them colourful homes and placed them in the most beautiful corners of our land. Then, we started to draw paintings on the doors of their homes, creating beehive panels that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. We write songs and tell stories about bees.
Come and experience the mysterious world of bees with all your senses! Taste honey bee products, peek inside the beehives and enjoy the pleasant fragrance surrounding the hives. In the meanwhile, enjoy the stories about beekeeping beginnings, the mysterious lives of the bees and the miracles of the honey bee products.
