Amazing LEGO Creation Breaks World Record in Budapest

Amazing LEGO Creation Breaks World Record in Budapest

Things in the LEGO world just got serious.

A new world record was broken just this week in Hungary, Budapest when LEGO architects placed the finishing Rubik's Cube ornament on the top of the massive Lego skyscraper.

Reaching 34.76 meters (114 feet), the tower was officially registered with the Guinness book of World Records as well as the LEGO Store in Budapest on May 25.

Constructed in front of St. Stephen's Basilica, the structure was created as a group effort. Dozen's of school children and specialized workmen banded together to assemble the tower using hundreds of thousands of LEGO bricks.

When asked about his reasoning behind the project, Mayor Antal Rogan explained:

This is a modern obelisk behind us, it shows that with lots of minute engineering knowledge & diligence how we can call attention to the fact that this is one of the most beautiful squares of Budapest.

The tower certainly has turned the publics eye to the lovely square.
