The Hungarian village of Sajóvámos secured fame with the (yet) unofficial record of making the longest sausage in the world – it is 2431 metres long (2658 yards). A team of 16 people from the village created the extra long sausage with incredible speed, in just half a day!
We have already reported about Hungarian Guinness World Records, which were mostly connected to sports or exercise. There was a silly record of a man balancing a football on his forehead for more than two hours while climbing the stairs, the fastest roundhouse karate kick by a martial artist, acrobatic basketball records, a football juggler girl’s record and a world record at the Budapest circus.
This time, a Hungarian village of 2100 citizens called Sajóvámos near Miskolc has broken the Guinness World Record with the longest consecutive sausage. At a Serbian sausage festival in 2015, a crew made a 2031-metre-long, 3 tonnes in weight sausage, Origo.hu reported back then. Since then, on the 2nd of February 2019, Hungarians set a new record, informed borsonline.hu.
The original goal of the 16-people team was to beat the Serbian record. Well, they did so and even surpassed it by 400 metres (four football pitches). The ingredients of the record-winning sausage weighed 1700 kg.
Gábor Gál, president of the Database of Hungarian Record, announced that the Hungarian record was made that day for sure, and expecting a Guinness World Record is not an exaggeration. However, the village has to wait a couple of weeks for the Guinness Record Association to certify the official record.
The interesting thing about the length of the sausage is that it almost has the same length in metres as the Main Street of the village.
