When the first snow covered the manor house and park in Svätý Anton, museum workers decided to make a pleasant day for them and their visitors. They built non-traditional snowmen near the entrance, My Žiar wrote.

“Attention! Snow and snowmen fall from the roof!” the workers wrote on the Facebook page of the museum, commenting on the snowman that lay upside down. The second snowman sat on bench nearby, My Žiar reported.

“Meteorologists announced that it was snowing. So we wanted to have fun, not just a calamity. We created snowmen with colleagues to welcome the Christmas season, and visitors as well,” said Jana Slaná from the museum, as quoted by My Žiar.

Christmas in Svätý Anton

The manor house and its exposition offers an overview of period living of the aristocracy and also the development of hunting in Slovakia, My Žiar wrote.

A Christmas market, together with lighting the Christmas tree and the arrival of Saint Nicholas is planned for Saturday, December 9. Kiosks with punch, cabbage soup and meat specialities will be available for visitors from 10 a.m, My Žiar reported.

“Visiting our museum will be connected with Christmas events that day,” summed up Slaná, as cited by My Žiar.
