On Easter Day, Kiev Pechersk Lavra will present a huge paska, or Easter bread, aiming to break the existing record, which belongs to a 200-kilogram giant baked two years ago in Dnepropetrovsk.
Perhaps an idea to bake a massive loaf has been inspired by a Biblical story when Jesus fed a thousand people with bread and fish; we are not sure.
The record-breaking paska is expected to be higher than two meters.
The Lavra priests said that the water used for the dough would come from the blessed springs of saints Antony and Feodosiy.
Bread tasting is open for everyone on Sunday, April 24, starting at 3 a.m., Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, metro Arsenalnaya.
Entrance is free.
