Description

The building, which is now the Honey and Bee Museum of the region, matches the architecture of the old houses in Kranidi, made of stone and reed on its roof, and it is in full accordance with the natural context of the land.
The owner, Kosmas Bairaktaris, has preserved all the objects himself, has designed and created the glass beehives, all of which can give the visitor the chance to observe how the bees work.
We are excited to share the story of Bairaktaris’ family, with people visiting our museum from all over the world!
Our apiary lies on a hill southwest of Kranidi, overlooking the beautiful bay of Kilada, as we follow the family tradition in apiculture with passion for the bees and their products from generation to generation since 1914.
We ourselves are the fourth generation of apiarists, keeping the tradition alive. Our long bee-keeping experience led my wife and me to more professional involvement, as we established the first honey and herb packaging company in Argolis in 2007.
