Once more did our Association for preserving heritage successfully put up the nativity scene in the hidden places of Gradež, the biggest nativity scene in Slovenia - 350 nativity scenes were put up and 3000 people visited us just to see them. You can imagine that such a big number of visitors, was a big deal for our village, especially because there are only 260 inhabitants, including the new settlement, and the old Gradež only has 120 inhabitants.

Our Association for preserving heritage prepared the 11th display of nativity scene in Gradež near Turjak, which is the biggest in Slovenia. More than 340 nativity scenes will be on display until the 2nd of January 2019.
