"Our rose gardens are full of working bees during the spring, and we will show the smallest visitors what their life is like in the form of the Včeličkovo game and creative workshops. This year we are also opening a new educational section of the apiary, where you can walk along an educational trail with physical activities and beekeeping exhibits," said Dáša Dzurechová from the Apimed mead farm, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
