Bees are playful creatures who live an interesting life. They are very important not only for humans, but also for the entire ecosystem. Beekeeping therefore is regarded to be a noble craft, which requires special dedication. In Slovenia, beekeeping is one of the oldest traditional crafts which has had a considerable influence on local culture.
