UNESCO defines the intangible culture as practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills that communities recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.

In Slovenia it is usually divided in the following areas:

Its safeguarding is based on the UNESCO Convention (2003) and the state law on natural and cultural heritage (2008) and is coordinated by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum.

In September 2019 the national register of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Slovenia lists 72 items, among them the Škofja Loka Passion Play, the Laufarija in Cerkno, the Procession of the Kurent - Korant, Making Idrija bobbin lace, Ribnica woodenware, Traditional production of sea salt, the Traditional breeding and keeping of Lipizzaner horses at the Lipica stud farm, Slovene folk-pop music, the Reading Badge movement, and the Painting beehive panels.

Museum of Apiculture, Radovljica

The Museum of Apiculture, Radovljica, located in the Baroque Radovljica Mansion in the historic centre of Radovljica (together with the Municipal Museum of Radovljica), was founded in 1959 by the executive committee of the Beekeepers' Association of Slovenia in response to an appeal in the journal Slovenski čebelar (Slovene Beekeeper) to collect more material on the ancient practice of beekeeping. The museum was incorporated into the Radovljica Municipality Museums in 1963, thoroughly renovated in 1973, and again from 1996 to 2000.
