Apiary under the forest

Dear guests and visitors of Donovaly, we present to you the first api-house in Donovaly! In a wholesome and healthy mountain environment, we follow the saying “Sound in body, sound in mind.”, therefore we decided to put this saying into practice through apitherapy. If you are looking for a way to improve your overall health or to welcome new energy into your life and relax in the embrace of nature, Včelín pod lesom (Apiary under the forest) is the perfect choice for you.

Nowadays, there are many approaches to improve your health or lifestyle, but there are fewer that are based on natural ways. Apitherapy is a purely natural way to improve overall health. It forms part of alternative medicine dealing with the effects of bee products (honey, pollen, royal jelly, bee venom, propolis, beeswax) on a living organism. All bee products are powerful antioxidants full of vitamins and enzymes that help without the intervention of any chemicals in the human body. The effect of bee products is obtained by breathing of hive air and the activity of the bee bio-field in a special api-house. Apitherapy is a suitable form of prevention, which can be experienced either as a therapeutic or as an experiential form of relaxation.

Beekeepers and Apitherapy

Since only a few beekeepers deal with apitherapy in Slovakia, we will be happy to introduce you with this unique opportunity. We approached the award-winning beekeeper Petr Jánošík, who dedicated his heart and soul and many years of experience in the field. Since his childhood, Peter has lived a beekeeping life, following his father and grandfather, who passed down this beautiful mission to him.

Peter has been actively involved in beekeeping for 10 years and currently takes care of 120 bee families in Liptovská Osada, Liptovská Lúžná, Hubová and Donovaly. The bees are cared for solely in an ecological way without the reach of monoculture crops treated with chemical products. For that reason, the bees are healthy, strong and ready to help people and improve their health. What is the secret of the healing effect of the bee bio-field? The bees, with their constant diligence and harmony, create vibrations, the so-called bio-field. Vibrations represent the frequency of cells in a healthy human body, therefore apitherapy has a special property that can improve health on a physical and also on a mental level.

Support your organism

Relax and allow the bees to take care of tuning your body into the right biorhythm in a unique api-house Apiary under the forest. During your stay in api-house you can enjoy a wonderful view of the westernmost peak of the Low Tatras – Prašivá, or just rest your body and mind in the presence of the healing hive air.

Apiary under the forest, unique project in Donovaly, created in collaboration with a local beekeeper Ing. Peter Jánošík.
