The Black Ghost Sculpture at Lithuania

The creepy statue, which is located near Memel Castle, actually has a historical precedent. Klaipeda, which was founded by Teutonic Kings as early as the 7th century, was saved from impending famine by a mysterious ghost. 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.

So, in the end, The Black Ghost actually turned out to be a friendly spirit.
