The World´s Largest Necktie

October 18th, 2003.  Pula, Istria, Croatia

Yep, this is it - The World's Biggest Tie.  And the neck is a 2000 year-old Roman amphiteatre in Pula, Istria, Croatia.

It took just 9015 sq. meters of fabric, 120 kilometers of thread and 300 hours of work to make the world's largest neck-tie.  When it was finished it was 808 meters long, 25 meters wide and it weighed 450,75 kilograms.  An artificial owl was used to scare off the seagulls and prevent them from crapping all over the thing.  After all, Croats invented the neck-tie back in the 17th century.

I just love those creative Europeans, they really have such a great culture and no matter what they are the meaning of being creative.  It must be their resilience.
