“Easter Time”: New Exhibition in Krapivna

easter1April 20 – May 13, 2013

Local History Museum of Krapivna 

Opening of the exhibition: on April 19 at 15:00

You are welcome to attend an exhibition devoted to the coming “holiday of holidays” – the Orthodox Easter. This year it is celebrated on the 5th of May. Every holiday has its own distinctive features and traditions, and our new exhibition will first of all tell you about the traditional way to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. You will also learn about the history of Easter celebrations and various symbols of the holiday, and you will see old Easter postcards and visiting cards from the collection of the Krapivna Museum.


Easter is also a family holiday, and it marks a transition from winter to spring, too; it’s a symbol of the victory of life over death, of love over evil, and of faith over despair. It’s common to celebrate Easter with our family and relatives, and many of its traditions – preparations for the celebration, special Easter wishes and food – unite the family members and become an important pattern of the family’s life.
