Wow - this incredible mechanical nativity scene located in Třebechovice pod Orebem in the Czech Republic is on my list of places I would LOVE to visit. Known as Probošt's mechanical Christmas crib, this stunning nativity was declared a cultural monument of the Czech Republic in 1999.
Here is a video you can watch of the nativity in action. It's truly amazing!
Here at YonderStar, we currently have just one nativity scene made in the Czech Republic. The very popular Czech illustrator Josef Lada created an illustrated nativity scene in 1920. He was a prolific artist in Prague and his very specific style was displayed in many magazines, newspapers and books.
