From people who know best

"Slovenia - one small and charming country, where you like to return."

“Slovenia - one small and charming country, where you like to return. The beauty is everywhere in the nature and in the way of living. Honey, the symbol of sweetness and love is a part in the children education. It looks like a space where the spirit of the bees lives free."

(Dr. Cristina Aosan, Member in the Apitherapy Commission of Apimondia, Vicepresident of the Romanian Apitherapy Society)
