If you are visiting Lithuania at some point this creepy statue may be one to go and have a look at. It is located near Klaipeda, a small town, which was founded by Teutonic Kings as early as the 7th century.
Legend has it that in 1595, a castle guard was walking by the docks when he saw a ghostly, hooded figure. This “black ghost” asked about the town’s grain and timber supply, inquiring if what they had was sufficient. The guard replied that they did indeed have a good supply, but the figure issued a warning that their stocks would soon run low, and then vanished.
Some say this mysterious sighting saved the town and hence why we have the statue there today…..
