Home to more than 10,000 beekeepers, 12,500 apiaries and nearly 170,000 hive colonies, bees have a significant role to play in Slovenian culture for centuries. Today, Slovenia is home to a huge variety of bee-related activities, from relaxing honey massage, beehive air inhalation to staying overnight in your very own private honeycomb! The Slovenian pavilion at Expo Dubai 2020 will present the country as the green heart of Europe, which lies at the crossroads of diverse landscapes, and where apitourism (bee tourism) and bee related exhibits will be a major aspect at the pavilion.
In order to showcase the best of Slovenia’s api-adventures, the Slovenian Tourist Board has joined hands with local bee-keeping, honey industry and tourism specialists to create a special 4-day ‘Apitourism’ packaged holiday, that combines visits to Slovenia’s iconic tourist spots like Ljubljana and Lake Bled, with apitherapy spa treatments and visits to bee farms and other bee related attractions.
