Tallest Lego tower – level 2

02-06-2014 15:00

People broke another world record in Hungary. They built the tallest Lego tower in Budapest. It is 36 metres tall – 1.57 metres taller than the second tallest tower in the USA.

The mayor of the city hopes that the record will promote Budapest to the world. More tourists may come visit Budapest.

Officials from the Guinness World Record company arrived in Budapest and confirmed the record.

Difficult words: promote (make more known), official (somebody who is in a position of authority), confirm (say that something is true).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
