30 sculptors have built world’s tallest sandcastle in the Jutland town of Blokhus village in Denmark.
“We placed the coronavirus on the top as a crown, because corona means crown and it has ruined our lives in every way,” said a sandcastle builder Wilfred Stijger from Holland.
The castle is 21.16 meters high and has broken the previous record in the Guinness Book of World Records by three meters. The castle is built around a wooden frame for stabilization. Nearly 5,000 tons of sand has been used to build the giant sand pyramid.
“It’s more than beautiful. It looks like a piece of architecture from Rome,” says Brian Pedersen, who visited the sandcastle and Blokhus, which holds a sandcastle festival every year.
The sandcastle in Blokhus will be included in next year’s world record book. The now second highest sandcastle in the world stands in Germany.
