Ukrainian City Home to World's Largest Crossword Puzzle

29. June 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Last year, officials in Lvov, Ukraine decided to add a fun, new attraction to their city: the world’s largest crossword puzzle!


Placed along the side of a residential apartment building, the puzzle is 100 feet high, 19 squares across, and 34 squares tall. Clues to the puzzle are scattered throughout different parts of the city (fountains, theaters, monuments, etc.) as designers wanted residents and guests to see more of what Lvov has to offer. Though the puzzle appears empty during the day, a special fluorescent light reveals the answers at night, allowing people to check their answers.


The letters are from the Cyrillic alphabet, so most Western visitors will be unable to solve the puzzle. However, if you’re in the area it’s worth checking out this record-breaking crossword puzzle.
