The first Christmas crib in Slovenia was set up in 1644 by Jesuits at St. James’ church in Ljubljana but it was not until the 19th century when farmers got one as well. Carved wooden figurines and animals were made by numerous talented individuals and handicraft workshops. Later on, other materials won recognition, such as paper, clay, plaster and plastic. It is hard to imagine a home without a Christmas crib, be it either simple, home-made or bought one. They will bring joy, warmth and tranquillity to your home.
