Radovljica is richer for a new adventure for families. The themed adventure, named 'Follow a 'bee' through Radovljica', has been designed to acquaint visitors with the life of bees in a fun way will be available from 24th May onwards.
The adventure, which is in Slovenian and English, addresses families from Slovenia and abroad.
In the old town centre of Radovljica the Radovljica Public Institute for Tourism and Culture, in cooperation with Pagon Šport, has created three interactive points, while the fourth point, which connects the path as a whole, is located in the Museum of Apiculture. By solving didactic tasks, children can hone their manual skills and spacial recognition, strengthen their creativity and, most of all, have fun whilst learning about the life and work of the Carniolan grey bee, the indigenous Slovenian breed of bee.
By lauching the Radovljica Beekeeping Adventure, the Radovljica Public Institute for Tourism and Culture wishes to consolidate Radovljica's position as the capital of Slovenian beekeeping. When thinking about what was available for families, which was something that had been desired for a long time, the idea about a bee-related adventure was an obvious choice and was inspired by the events last year to mark the first-ever World Bee Day.
Families can set off on the path entirely independently. It is recommended that families call in at the Radovljica Tourist Information Centre prior to setting off to purchase a booklet containing tasks to be completed and a map, which costs €8 and also includes a family entrance ticket to the Musem of Apiculture, where, at the end of the visit, a sweet treat awaits!
The booklet is also available for school and nursery school groups in combination with a guided visit to the Museum of Apiculture. Such groups must arrange their visit in advance with the Museum of Apiculture.
Set off as a family on an adventure accompanied by a cute 'bee' who will explain where she lives, what her chores are, and where she goes to gather nectar. Visit the Museum of Apiculture and see her treasures, and, as a reward, savour the taste of sweet honeybreads.
