I'm sorry but this is horrible. It looks like a set from Lord of the Rings? Why would anyone want to build something like that? And who paid for it?

Pious people of Świebodzin build it from their donations so that Poles and people from all around Europe travelling a nearby highway see just how much they love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

For those that are unaware, during WWII, Australian forces tried to invade Turkey here, only to be completely slaughtered. Every year thousand of Australians make a pilgrimage to this part of Turkey to pay their respects. It's one of the most remembered battles in Australian military history, and ANZAC Day is a public holiday here.
