Nativity scenes exhibit opens in Hodonín

An exhibition of nearly 400 nativity scenes opened in the south Moravian town of Hodonín on Sunday. Nativity scenes are a traditional part of Czech Christmas; they are usually made of wood, ceramics, corn or ginger bread. The largest scene on display is six metres tall; the exhibition also features a Romany nativity scene on loan from the Museum of Romany Culture in Brno.
