Make sure you read " bol'shAya " and not "bOl'shaya" in this sentence.

I agree, the stress is incorrect. Further examples:

  • Канада - больша́я страна (Canada is a big country)
  • Канада - бо́льшая страна, чем Ватикан (Canada is a bigger country than the Vatican)
  • Канада бо́льше чем Ватикан (Canada is bigger than the Vatican)
  • Канада - наибо́льшая страна на континенте (Canada is the biggest country on the continent)
  • Канада - самая больша́я страна на континенте (Canada is the biggest country on the continent)
