If you want to indulge in spiritual peace and enjoy a beautiful view of the Orava countryside, visit the unique statue of Christ in the village of Klin. The statue of the Saviour rises above the village on Grapa Hill, and the hands of the statue are directed at protecting all of Orava. The monument is a copy of the famous Brazilian statue in Rio de Janeiro. It is 9.5 metres tall and it weighs 23 tonnes. The statue was created by a local folk master and it is the tallest statue of
the Saviour in Slovakia.

Did you know that... ?

The statue is the third copy of the Brazilian Christ in the world; the second one is a 23 metre Christ the Saviour in Lisbon, Portugal.
