The Gorenjska region is not only known for its numerous natural beauties, but also as the homeland of an autochthonous bee species - Carniolan honey bee, which represents a special kind of Slovenian pride. And this is precisely the reason why we dedicated to the Slovenian hardworking bees their own space at the Bled castle.
