Although the Czech Republic is a small country, it is certainly not lost among the great powers. Czechs are also successful record holders. We have selected a few interesting ones that we can be proud of.
The smallest paper swallow
The Czech record holder is Tomáš Kreuzman, who managed to fold the smallest paper swallow in dimensions 3.5 mm and 2.5 mm within thirty minutes. You will surely be interested in how he was able to assemble such a tiny swallow. He managed it thanks to a toothpick. The record was entered in the Book of Records on January 23, 2023.
Most college degrees
Many of us are happy to earn at least one academic degree in our lifetime. Leo Savet won a total of 13 of them, which is an absolute record. You may be surprised, but this man did not study right from his youth, on the contrary, he started as a tram driver and earned his degrees during his life. He published in many magazines, wrote two books and also worked as a teacher in schools.
His name, including titles, is as follows: doc. Ing. Ph.Dr. PaedDr. PhDr. and PhDr. etc. PhDr. JUDr. et JUDr. Leo Salvet, Ph.D., DBA, DSc., dr. h.c
Longest walking distance on hands
98.5 meters in 2:40:81 minutes – that’s the Czech record for walking on hands. The holder is Patrik Hložek from Brno, who managed to achieve the record in 2018.
The longest endurance in the plank
For some it is difficult to last a few seconds in the plank, but for Josef Šálek from Písek, even a time of over 9 hours and 38 minutes was not a problem. But beware, this is not only a Czech record, but a world record, which was broken in May of this year. The plank was not performed on the palms, but directly on the elbows. Josef had to strengthen his body enough to last such a long time. And it worked, hats off.
The oldest restaurant in the Czech Republic
The restaurant in the Moravian-Silesian region has been operating continuously for an incredible 750 years. It is called the Jaškovská tavern and is located in Horní Těrlick. It is an architecturally very interesting building and a secret passage led from the local cellar.
Drinking kefir milk
Radim Dvořáček managed to drink five liters of kefir milk in one hour, seven minutes and 42 seconds. We can’t imagine what that amount of kefir did to his intestines, but we dare say it cleansed him perfectly.
The longest film career of a Czech actress
Jiřina Bohdalová ended her career, which was the longest among all actresses, a month ago. It lasted exactly 86 years and appeared in 224 films. She starred for the first time in the silent film Žižla and Pižla on the road.
