As one of the world’s most popular, most widely-played games, “Minecraft” attracts a wide swath of players. Many of these folks are just like you and me — casual, into playing fun games, but maybe not ready to dig in and spend, like, years hand-crafting a massive world.
And then there’s a small section of that massive playerbase that takes the game’s creation aspect to stunning, incredible heights. Such is the case with the so-called “Kingdom of Galekin” — an enormous, incredibly ambitious world that one “Minecraft” player has been hand-crafting for nearly five years.
In both size and detail, the Kingdom of Galekin is insanely impressive. Check it:

The same goes for the flags here -- they don't flap in the wind. But they do a great job with ambience!
The level of detail in the kingdom is stunning, even though it's just as blocky as ever (this is still 'Minecraft').
The sheer size of this creation is truly stunning. And all these buildings have interiors, keep in mind!
But enough of these (glorious, beautiful) images! Check out this virtual flythrough from the latest version:
