Polish Christmas

The SZOPKA (shop-kah)  is the Krakowian Creche.  These elaborate creations of tin paper are entered into competition each year on the square of Mariacki (St. Mary's Cathedral) in Krakow.  The largest collection of past exhibits can be found in the Ethnographic Museum of Krakow in the Kazimierz district.
