Traditionally, we associate the most beautiful Christmas atmosphere with the Czech Christmas mass, also known as Rybovka, which has its origin in the year 1796. The story tells of the preaching of Christ’s birth and of the arrival of the shepherds to the crib. Once you take part in the experience of a true Czech mass, such as the one by composer Jakub Jan Ryba, its charm will keep you continuing this tradition from that moment on.
