GAVLE

Gavlebock

City of Gävle is famous for its Christmas goat.

Each year, a huge stuffed straw goat is set on the square in the center of the city, and at Christmas it is traditionally burned.

The first time was built in 1966.

In 1985 he was listed in the Guinness Book of Records.


Parameters stuffed:

Total weight: 3.6 tons (1.3 tons of straw).
Height: 7.6 meters.
Length: 7 meters.
79.5 meters of different tapes.

Almost every year the local hooligans burned erected a figure, despite the fact that these actions are considered by Swedish law as vandalism and will result in criminal liability.

Today, the giant supply additional fire-resistant clothing, set the camera around to help police track down the arsonists.
