conditions of Ukraine.
Ukraine is located mostly
in the moderate climatic zone, except for southern coast of Crimea, which

and in the south - the Crimean mountains. The highest altitude in Ukraine
is mountain Goverla (2061 meters) in the Carpathians. The maximum altitude
at the Crimean's is the Roman-kosh (1545 meters).
The biggest river of Ukraine
is Dnieper. Danube, Dnister, Siverskyi Donets are important water
arteries. There are plenty of small rivers in Ukraine, which makes Ukrainian
landscape especially picturesque.
Beekeeping in Ukraine has
centuries-old history. Foreigners, which visited Ukraine, were always surprised
by "huge quantities of bees and honey" in this land. This was an outcome
of the combination of the favourable natural conditions with diligence
and keen perception of our ancestors. In the period of Kiev Rus' the honey
and wax were among the basic products of trade.
The Ukrainian researchers
have made a significant contribution to the development of beekeeping.
One of them - Petro Prokopovych (1775-1850) -
was the world's first inventor of the frame beehive. He organized a school
of beekeeping - the first in Ukraine.
Modern Ukraine is among the
world's top -10 producers of honey and other products of beekeeping. 500
thousand beekeepers collect up to 70 thousand tons of honey annually.
