The winter is coming. And many people have to procure firewood. But citizens of a Russian city Rybinsk decided to do it in a creative way and even break a world record. In Demino vallage they built the largest stack of wood in the world. It is twenty two meters (72.12 ft) high which is two meters (6.56 ft) higher than the previous record.
Sportsmen, students and even designers of aircraft engines took part in the process. More than 800 m3 (2625 ft) of wood was stacked in the circular way.
They used special hydraulic cleavers brought from Germany and applied an old Russian technology: they were filling the middle with neat rows of wood with no fasteners. Despite the fact they were working 24/7 it took three months to finish the work. They have already applied to the Guinness Book of Records and the Russian Book of Records too.
Rybinsk is ready for winter now!
