Krušlovský včelín (Krušlov Apiary)

The unique, wood-carved and painted Mach’s Apiary in Krušlov is literally a bee kingdom. The South Bohemian village of Krušlov is located 21 km south of Strakonice. Bee-keeper and carver Josef Mach created this unique work of folk art. The apiary contains 65 artistically made beehives, some of them showing folk architecture, other hives decoratively painted. The apiary’s interiors are also richly ornamented. The building of the apiary started in 1948, thus it is over sixty years old. Children will smile when they see a huge carved bee called Maja.
