An exhibit featuring some 300 nativity scenes - including rare showpieces - has opened in the north Moravian city of Ostrava. Visitors will be able to see such rare exhibits as a mining-themed nativity scene that depicts a replica of a hoist tower and uses various nuts and bolts and other metal objects to represent traditional nativity figures. Other exhibits have been crafted from non-traditional materials like ceramics and even glass.
