As the existence of bees is endangered, we decided to hold an exhibition in the Castle's Casemates to draw attention to this issue. The exhibition is thematically divided into three content sections. The first showcases the classification of bees and their prevalence on Earth, the biology of a honey bee, her life cycle and also her phenomenal importance for the existence of the human race. The second part of the exhibition is dedicated to Slovenian beekeeping as an economic activity and its produce. The third part of the exhibition reveals the richness of the heritage reflected in professional and fictional literature, the cultural landscape, material and intangible heritage and contemporary art. For the moment, Slovenia remains a 'green' oasis and a country with global recognition for its outstanding beekeepers. It is our responsibility to conserve bees not just as a society but also as individuals. Guided tours are available around the exhibition, with more information available here. Admission to the exhibition costs €3. The exhibition is on view from 21 May to 25 September 2016.
