“They managed to make the Lego statue in less than two hours, thus breaking the Slovak record so far held by Košice – by 17 minutes,” Viktor Maceják, event coordinator of Europa Shopping Centre, said for the TASR newswire.

Currently, there are almost a million Lego blocks in forms of statues of film characters, animals – even Russian Matryoshka dolls; there are in total more than 20 of them, and many of them weigh more than a hundred kilograms. The heaviest statue is a fireman, weighing 290 kilograms.

LEGOR festival is a travel project and it will stay in Banská Bystrica for the rest of April, combining the unique exhibition of oversized statues from Lego blocks and the thrill of one’s own creation. During the whole stay in Banská Bystrica, anyone can play with the blocks in the local playzone.
