Wooden Bethlehem in Rajecká Lesná

It belongs among the largest wood-carvings in Slovakia. Master Jozef Pekara from Rajecké Teplice worked on it since 1980, and it took him 15 years to complete. In addition to Christ’s birth in Bethlehem and his life, the exhibition also shows the history of the Slovak nation. The Bethlehem is 8.5 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 3 metres high.

The Bethlehem includes a total of 300 figures, out of which more than half are animated.
