The model was built in 2015 by the Crestyl company in cooperation with Lego, as part of a larger exhibition to celebrate the opening of the Central Kladno shopping center – Kladno is home to a large Lego packaging facility.
âIt consists of 342,000 Lego cubes, weighs 2,700 kg and it took 2,137 hours to assemble,â Crestyl said in a Facebook message A few days ago. The company also confirmed that it loaned the model for free to place it at the Central Station, for all commuters and visitors to enjoy.
