The exhibit shows life in Moravia as experienced by a great-grandmother Maryška, from Charvátská Nová Ves. With four seasons in the background, the stages of human life take place (childhood, youth, adulthood, and old age.) The customs and traditions of the season are associated with Maryška’s life story, which are also in many ways typical to many other women in the 20th century. In the stories from her life, viewers will recall some important historical moments, such as the world wars. They will also see how the folklore heritage is preserved in Moravia to this day. The exhibit features 20 panels with photographs, recipes, and drawings.
