Do you know that the world as we know it would stop to exist in just four years, if bees became extinct? This is a truly shocking fact, for sure! It is true that bees are valuable parts of nature, always buzzing around and tranferring pollen to plants and flowers. Without them, the balance of nature would be off and there are many negative results in such a slippery slope. And if you want to know more about bees and their value to humanity and the world, then the Bee Museum in Rhodes is just the place to be!
Located in the settlement of Pastida, this is a one-of-a-kind museum dedicated to bees and it consists of two different sectors. They are all well connected and combined, of course. First, the history of bees over the centuries. Where are they first documented in scripts and when was their value first recognized and acknowledged? Next section is all about bee products. Not only honey (Greek honey ranks among the finest in the entire world), but also pollen and various treats, enjoyed ever since antiquity. Honey and pollination, along with the biology of bees, complete the tour in an experience that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Upon entering the Bee Museum in Rhodes, you feel as if you have entered a huge beehive and you immerse in this experience at first sight. A three-dimensional honeycomb on the roof, as well as 3D bees flying around, these are elements that add to the unique phenomenon of literally visiting the bee’s home. Are you ready to appreciate bees, these never-ceasing workers that contribute to the blossom of flowers and the pollination of nature?
