Damien, a beekeeper near Maribor converted two buses into bee houses. Actually, this is a common Slovenian practice, one that sets their beekeepers apart from others. He uses the bee buses for tourism and honey production. You can see the chalk marks on each hive that tell him the status of the hive. He says many tourists (many Japanese) will meditate in his bee bus. He opens all the hives and people can sit inside the bus surrounded by the noise of the buzzing bees.
While I was interviewing Damien, a few other neighbor beekeepers arrived with news that their own hives were dying off that day. Damien was nervous that something also might happen to his hives. In the past few years colony collapse, and other forms of hive disturbance have been affecting Slovenian bees.
