The opening of a memorial devoted to the Carniolan Honey Bee


From May 18, 2018 19:00
At Višnja Gora pri Ivančni Gorici town centre (Višnja Gora, 1294 Višnja Gora, Slovenija)

In the 19th century, the Rothschütz beekeeping family was active in the area of Višnja Gora, and is to be thanked for today’s recognisability, reputation, and prevalence of the Carniolan honey bee in the world. Emil Rothschütz provided an incredible contribution to the naming, propagation, and recognition of the Carniolan honey bee. Today, the Carniolan honey bee is an indigenous bee species and a part of the Slovenian national identity. For this very reason, the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association and the Municipality of Ivančna Gorica erected a memorial in the town centre devoted to the Carniolan honey bee, and this memorial will be unveiled on the occasion of commemorating the first World Bee Day.
