Since it's 20th of May, World Bee day, we share with you some facts about it in this post written by Slovanska duša. We are truly a land of honey;) #GGuides are also celebrating #WorldBeeDay2020

We are celebrating the World Bee Day / Svetovni dan čebel today! 💛🐝🍯
Did you know, that...
... one third of the world’s food production depends on bees? 🐝 You can help the bees by adding to the shrinking inventory of flower-rich habitat in your area by planting honey plants in your garden or on your window shelf 🌸🌹🌼
... for one kilogram of honey, a bee must visit 4 million flowers and fly a distance equal to four times around the world? 🌍
... there are approximately 4500 beehives in the area of the City of Ljubljana? 💚
... there are more than 10,000 beekeepers in Slovenia? 🍯
... a particular feature of Slovenian apitherapy is treatment in a bee house? 🐝 Beehive air has a favourable effect on our respiratory system, and the buzzing of bees relaxes us. Some apitherapists also offer honey massages and thermal beeswax therapy in their bee houses.
... in addition to being the original home area of the Carniolan honey bee, Slovenia can also pride itself on having Slovenski med– or Slovenian honey – with protected geographical indication, which guarantees customers the purchase of natural, genuine honey produced in Slovenia? 🍯
... in Ljubljana a "BEE PATH" was designed, which connects 35 members from various backgrounds (e.g. beekeepers, educational, cultural and health institutions etc.), who are raising awareness and approaching issues about creating favourable conditions for sustainable urban beekeeping, preserving urban biodiversity and urban food self-sufficiency and can introduce you to highlighs of these topics?
... in Slovenia we also have certified api-tourist guides, who have had specialized training and education and can organize apitours and introduce you to the interesting world of bees? 👩🏻‍🏫🌍🐝
