Nutritious, sweet, and aromatic, silkily glowing with golden colours: It’s no wonder honey is still revered as a gift of the gods. According to myth, the nymph Melissa taught people how to keep bees, a practice which has been established on the Greek islands for over 5,000 years. Even today, the locals still celebrate their local honey during festivities, such as during the Honey Festival in Dragano, which takes place in August. Enjoy traditional live music while experiencing the production of honey up close and tasting delicious pastries and sweets – or savour thyme honey on a bowl of yoghurt. In the evening, local nature conservation associations organise a colourful street parade.
