Kačín is a popular recreational locality in Bratislava that now offers the Apidomček healing powers of bees. It was built by the municipal forest company Mestské Lesy v Bratislave for €5,000.

In the bee therapy house there are four bee hives, housing about 120,000 bees. The hives fill the house with healthy bee air suitable for therapy. The house’s visitors do not come in a direct contact with the bees at any point during the therapy session.

“During therapy, the visitor lies on the bee hives, which form a bed, and inhales the warm air produced by bees,” said Zuzana Onufer, spokesperson of the Bratislava City Council.

The air in the house has high humidity, contains etheric oils, liquid wax particles, aerosol from flavonoids and propolis, enzymes, choline, and herbal hormones produced by bees. It is usually about 36 Celsius degrees in the house. The bee therapy cures a weak immunity system, problems with high blood pressure, allergies, asthma, eczema and in particular, diseases caused by stress.

The recommended time of relaxation is 20-30 minutes. It costs €15 per 30 minutes per person while large groups can get a discount. To schedule this therapy, contact info@ba-lesy.sk.

The municipal forest company has been breeding bees since 2015. It has two bee farms – in the garden of the gamekeeper’s house in Krasňany and at Kačín (on the road towards Lamač). It was inspired to build the bee therapy house by a secondary school in Banská Bystrica.
