[PHOTOS] 1,479-metre Croatian Strudel to Enter Guinness Book of Records


A 1,479 metre strudel prepared on Sunday in the central Croatian town of Jaškovo is to enter the Guinness Book of Records…

The record-breaking strudel was cooked with indigenous apples and grapes, and made according to an old recipe from the region Ozalj as part of the ‘Jaškovo for the world- Strudel for Guinness’ manifesto over the weekend.

It was planned that the strudel would be 1,300 metres long, but because of the quantity of ingredients prepared, the organisers decided to set the bar even higher and eventually produced a strudel which the judges measured at 1,479 metres.


Over 520 kilograms of apples and 260 kilograms of grapes were used for the strudel, all coming from the region.
