The Idrija Municipal Apiary  is an exceptional example of a skilfully crafted and executed and painted apiary and is one of the highlights of the 20th century Slovene apiculture. 

The apiary is located by the Church of the Holy Trinity where, according to the legend, a bucket maker discovered native mercury in 1490. It was built in 1925 at the request of Pavel Lapajnea well-known Idrija lace trademan. 

After years of decay, the apiary was in need of a through renovation,which began in 2013, when the Municipality of Idrija together with the Idrija Beekepers’ Association, ICRA d.o.o. Idrija, and several contractors tried to preserve as much elements of this unique apiary as possible (wooden construction, windows, doors) in order to preserve the authenticity of the apiary. As the beehives and the beehive panels were in a bad condition, some of the old beehives were replaced by new ones and all of the beehives were painted by the local artist Danilo Jereb with local themes. The beekeepers populated the beehives with families of Carniola Honey Bees and began with several beekeeping activities to help revive the apiary.
