The World's Largest Ukrainian Easter Egg (Psyanka)
Many Ukrainian settlers came to western Canada
in the 1800 and 1900's and no where is that shown more than in the small town of Vegreville, Alberta
. Here you can see the world's largest psyanka (a Ukrainian Easter egg), which was built in 1975 to honour the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) at their centennial. The giant aluminum egg is 3 and half storeys tall, weighs over 5000lbs, and spins.
