Museum of Nativity Scenes, Kryštofovo Údolí

An interesting exposition of nativity scenes is installed in the U Kryštofa pub, which you will find just down from the wooden church in the centre of the village.

There are more than twenty cribs (nativity scenes) and their parts on display here - from minuscule ones to huge ones, occupying twenty square metres. The oldest crib dates back to 1846. The most interesting exhibits include half of an original oriental-style crib by Müller and a part of a Tyrolean crib by Franz Pohl. This one used to be mechanical and it has been gradually put in motion recently. There is also a "chicory crib" on display here with its figures placed in chicory. The last crib for the present moment is sixteen metres long and at Christmas time it is displayed outdoors, close to the pub.
