Poland’s giant snowman

KRAKOW TOURS – It’s Frosty, super-sized.

This 31-foot behemoth – dubbed ‘Milocinek’ – is casting a long, frigid shadow over Trzebnica, Poland.

A group of ‘bored’ Poles started building him one day – and then decided they would just keep going.

Six days later, they hunted down a barrel for a hat and a traffic cone for a nose, and their work was done.

The resulting Goliath of a snowman stands on eye-level with surrounding two-storey homes, and dwarfs passing cars it is 9.5 metres (31 feet) high.

The snowman was completed Friday near the town of Trzebnica in southwestern Poland.

A Polish newspaper’s website reported Saturday that the snowman’s builders believe Milocinek is the largest snowman built in Poland since winter weather set in more than a week ago.

Other observers go further – suggesting he may well be the largest snowman in the world.
