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