The Beekeeping Development and Training Centre of Gorenjska is situated in the town of Lesce. Slovenia is famous for its traditional beekeeping practices and of course its honey. With the opening of this beekeeping centre in 2012, all the education, development, demonstration and promotional activities related to beekeeping that you could possibly imagine can all be found in the same place. Learn about long history of beekeeping and see how honey gets from the flower to the jar, and is nowadays used for a diverse range of purposes in addition to sweetening your tea.
For most people the highlight of any visit will be tasting the different varieties of honey, but many other activities, workshops and short trips can be arranged with advanced notice. Definitely one of the sweetest destinations in Slovenia!
