Beehives in Slovenia

A while back, I visited Slovenia. I was in the Carniolan region, actually, and didn’t know about the connection to honey bees. (Ignorant American that I am, I cannot read Russian or Slovene.) When I came home and realized a major breed of honey bees originated in this region, I dug out the old photos to share on this blog. (Carniolan is the breed that originated there, btw.) Cool, right?

They had large hive houses like this one pictured here.

I love the folk art painted on these hives!
