Handmade crib from Krakau, South Poland
The Kraków crib, as the name suggests, you can only find in Kraków. There is a long tradition in making these crib out of shiny paper and cardboard. They suggest more an architecture modell than a common nativity scene. Since 1937, there is a competition on every first Thursday of December in Krakow, organized by the historical museum. Everyone is allowed to participate, but the crib should be crafted in Krakow style and satisfy certain aesthetic requirements. A colorful paper roll is not enough.
