Croatian Christmas Nativity Display by Jerry and Branka Malinar Croatian Heritage Museum 34900 Lake Shore Blvd, Eastlake, Ohio November 26, 2023
The Croatian Heritage Museum in Eastlake, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland) has a beautiful Nativity set on display for the Christmas holiday. Branka Malinar and her late husband Jerry have volunteered for the Croatian Museum and community for over 40 years.
Jerry created this traditional Croatian Nativity scene out of papier-mâché. A painting of Zagreb, Croatia is in the back and besides the crèche there are other special features such as a Mill and a rotating Kolo circle dance.
Watch a quick video of the Croatian Nativity Display.
Here are some pictures of the display.
