For several years, this was numerically the largest crib exhibition in Slovenia. Around 350 cribs were set up at the 2019/2020 exhibition, this year due to the epidemic we were not able to organize a guided tour or hospitality for visitors, there were 150 cribs on display, but not indoors.
The nativity scenes are usually display in houses, small chapels, cellars, granaries… and in open air, they are smaller than one cm, sometimes enormous and also live-size. We can’t come up with any more ways of making the scene, we have tried everything. The authors are the villagers and also people from other Slovene towns, in the last years many cribs have been brought from abroad.
We prepare all Sundays:
- sguided tours to all the scenes
- process of making the festivity scene is put on display
- holiday market
- hot drinks and something for the hungry.
At the opening of the exhibition there will be a short Christmas concert, We also organize an exhibition of "poprtnik" (Christmas bread) and a surprise for the youngest visitors.
A more detailed program will be prepared in November.
