An interesting exhibition for children as well as adults. You will visit a fairy Christmas world featuring nativity scenes, a devils’ flea market, angels, a big gingerbread house, small landscapes with dwarfs, a mice house, a theatre made of wooden spoons, and more. The Angel Train with 50 waggons will present Czech Christmas customs and tradition.
You will smell Christmas cookies as well as needles, at the trees you will see hand-made decorations. There will be also a screening of old Christmas cards. You will find out what are Christmas symbols, what are „switches“ (vrkoče). Furthermore, do you know what is St Christoph Crook or why should be an angel on a Christmas tree?
Last but not least, you can look forward to a rich accompanying programme and workshops for children.
