Copy from web site:

Slovak Bethlehem was opened in November 1995. This is the masterpiece of Jozef Pekara, a woodcarver from Rajecke Teplice. Mr. Jozef Pekara has been working on it since 1980. In his work of art he depicts not only the Nativity but also the history of the Slovak nation. The tableau of the Nativity is in the middle of the creche that is located in the village of Rajecka Lesna. All the Slovak regions can be found there represented by their most famous places and buildings, such as: the castles of Devin, Bratislava, Trencin, and Orava and the cathedrals in Nitra, Trnava, Spisska Kapitula, and Kosice. One of the High Tatras mountains, Krivan, rises in the background as a symbol of Slovakia.

Once it is finished in 1998 it will be 8,5 m long, 2,5 m wide and 3 m high.

On the first floor of the House of the Nativity there is a gallery that attracts visitors by the works of art of woodcarvers like Briestensky, Vesely, Baca from Rajecka valley.
