World's Largest Pyrogy

The world's largest pyrogy is located in Pyrogy Park, on Pyrogy Drive, in the pyrogy-mad town of Glendon, Alberta. Notice the crazy spelling of "pyrogy." But then again, what do you expect from a country that calls their famous hockey team the "Maple Leafs," instead of the grammatically-correct "Maple Leaves."

World's Largest Pyrogy

The World's Largest Perogy (also "Pyrogy"), a huge Ukrainian dumpling, is on a fork. There's also a Perogy Hotel and Restaurant where you can sample the yummy little things.
