Ljubljana – most bee-friendly municipality in 2019

The Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association awarded us with the golden recognition and the title Most Bee-friendly Municipality in 2019.

The award is a big recognition for all our efforts aimed at the preservation and creation of a quality green urban environment, welcoming to bees and other pollinators, as well as all citizens and visitors. The recognition of the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association was awarded to us on the basis of numerous activities, among others the Bee Path, which is not only a tourist product but also a movement of 36 partners, the programme Help the Bee – Flower-up the City, within the framework of which we are encouraging planting of honey flowers, the city apiary at the University Botanic Gardens Ljubljana, the international project BeePathNet, where we have partnered up with five European cities, which are using the model of Ljubljana’s Bee Path to build their own paths and are following our fine example in developing urban beekeeping, then the Eneja’s honey garden at Grba, the Api Kindergarten, and so many more.

Beekeeping Tourism Day

The Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association presented recognitions within the scope of the traditional Beekeeping Tourism Day awarding the municipalities for their special efforts and good cooperation with beekeepers, beekeeping associations and all those who in some way or other contribute to the quality of beekeeping practices and products. This is the second time in the past three years that Ljubljana received the golden recognition.
