Pyramid of Giza Replica
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering present-day Giza in Greater Cairo, Egypt. It’s also the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, but due to the pandemic, many people have not been able to visit this year. A couple, Andrey and Victoria Vakhrushev, from Istinka, Russia, used modern tools to build a miniature concrete replica in their backyard. Read more for two videos and additional information.

Approximately 400-tons worth of concrete blocks were used, and the completed the pyramid is 19-times smaller than its real-life counterpart. Despite its size, many details were recreated, as they spent years researching the Great Pyramid while building their own.

I was really striving to achieve exact sizes, up to one-centimeter accuracy, on the right level, not with one or two-centimeter error, but the exact size, perfect and nothing less. Of course, the blocks we used are different, but this is still a monolithic structure, we made careful calculations in terms of masonry, making it in a special way so that it is as close [to the original] as possible,” said Andrey.
