IN THE week leading up to Easter weekend, 21 trees and the whole premises of the Museum of Liptov Village in Pribylina were decorated with 3,676 Easter eggs, which constituted a Slovak national record. The commissioner of the Book of Slovak records, Igor Svítok, informed the TASR newswire, who added that Easter has had a long tradition in Slovakia.

“An Easter egg is a gift for every boy who showers a girl with water and whips her with a wicker whip,” Svítok said. “Most Easter eggs were brought by students of the Secondary Grammar School in Liptovský Hrádok [336] and pupils of the elementary and nursery schools in Lúčky [310]. Parts of the gallery constitute a mansion with 428 decorated eggs and another 1,023 Easter eggs were placed in the so-called wagon-room. People came each day in the hundreds and even thousands to visit the open-air Museum of Liptov Village,” he added. The programmes in the museum also included a nation-wide competition of the most beautiful Easter eggs, a show presenting spring rituals and an exhibition of eggs of collector Ľudmila Bátorová from Prievidza.
