Yekaterinburg residents who visited the city's square in front of the Kosmos cinema on Tuesday were able to take one of the 1,023 pieces of the 300-meter puzzle to try to complete the image of the painting. Guests and citizens alike could recreate the masterpiece by the famous German printmaker and painter, the Voice of Russia reports.

The event was part of the German-Russian Year of Culture celebration. The gargantuan jigsaw puzzle was produced in Nuremberg, the hometown of Albrecht Durer, for the festival.
