Pyramid in Garden – level 2

06-07-2020 07:00

A Russian couple built a copy of the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt. They built the pyramid in the garden behind their summer home near St. Petersburg.

Andrey and Viktoria Vakhrusheva used concrete blocks to build a pyramid that is 19 times smaller that the original pyramid in Egypt. The pyramid is smaller; however, it is still very big. Its sizes are more than 42 feet long and its tower is 29.5 feet high.

The couple studied the original pyramid very carefully, and it took them two years to plan the building. Currently, many people come to visit the pyramid. Some people take part in spiritual activities, and some people are only interested in the building itself.

Difficult words: concrete (a grey building material), block (a large piece of hard material), spiritual (related to what someone feels and believes).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
