Did the traffic circle 3 times before we realized what we were looking at.
Sep 2019
So, one of goes, "what on earth is that?" as we approach the traffic circle. It took us about 3 times before we realized it was a huge white statue of Jesus. It reminded us of Rio, but it is actually larger than that statue by 3 metres (9.8 ft. It's absolutely huge. I read up on it and found out that it was completed completed on 6 November 2010. The figure is 33 metres (108 ft) tall, the crown is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall, and along with its mound, it reaches 52.5 metres (172 ft) overall. Cost was 1.5 million payed for by the 21.000 residents of the nearby town. The statue gets more imposing as you drive closer.
Locals from Sulechow (nearby town) said derisively that it was constructed to put Swiebodzin on the map. No other reason. I guess there must be one given that Poland is historically a strongly Catholic nation. Anyway, it's imposing.

Good break in-between Berlin and Krakow
Jul 2019
Not to be missed a Huge Statue to Jesus Christ along the highway between Berlin and Krakow. Impossible to miss as it is so big. A good spot to have a break while driving. Leave Berlin in the morning and have Breakfast in the town. Little English spoken but I found it easy to get breakfast. just make sure you have a cafe already noted to stop at as the town does not have a tourist area. so you need to know where you are eating at.

Spectacular! Breathtaking!

I never knew this statue was in Poland 🇵🇱 and always thought the statue in Brazil was the largest in the world 🌍 This Jesus statue is the bigger by 3m.
It’s free. You can walk up to the statue. Not too many stairs. I was in awe looking up. It looks like Jesus is holding his arms out to you, the world and her people, pointing towards Heaven. I really felt such a strong sense of belief standing there. What a beautiful, amazing site. There is a hotel there but the reception was closed so we couldn’t buy any mementos. The toilets were available to use.
I am surprised I haven’t heard more about this wonderful statue in Swiebodzin or the place.
Well done Poland.

Impressive!

Christ the King Statue is easily visible from the highway, and is well worth stopping to get a closer look. It only takes a few minutes to exit the highway and it’s a short easy walk (no charge) walk to the base of the statue. I’ve been to Rio’s Christ the Redeemer and this is more impressive and not as commercial or crowded. Highly recommend!

An impressive thing to see.

It is well worth to get off the highway and drive 10 minutes off route to see this Jesus statue, which is more than 5 meters taller than the one in Rio.

I have stopped here during business trip as you can notice this monument from highway. It is really impressive and worth to see and deficate 15 minutes for small walk. Do not forget to donate it after as for sure it costs a lot to mantain it, for example lightening.

Saw from the distance at night - quite surprising
Jul 2018 • Family
The statue is huge, it dominates over the town, illuminated at night, we could see it from the distance, outside the town.
Looked somehow odd and surrealistic located on that hill.
There were no traffic signs to guide the tourists to the statue.

Impressive statue of Jesus. Only a couple of minutes off freeway if you are driving by. Worth the time to take a picture. Shows Christianity alive in Poland
