Klaipeda has many statues around town. This one is rather peculiar and creepy, but it gets people talking and is quite popular with tourists. Legend has it that in 1595, a guard from Klaipeda Castle saw the ghost creep out of the water to warn...More

There are many interesting and some bizarre statues in Klaipeda. This is by far the scariest, it depicts a ghost emerging from the sea. Well worth the trouble of finding it, fascinating and brilliant.

I really liked this, you look at it then realise what it is coming out of the water up the dock. Worth finding it to have a look

Can give your kids goosebumps... A ghostly creature coming out of the harbour, well located at the corner of the old swing bridge....

I had seen this sclupture many times online, but didn't know it was in Klaipeda! What a nice surprice! Smaller people could even fit into the statue and have a funny picture!

There are interesting sculptures all over Kalipeda and this is an eerie one. Coming off the cruise ship walking by you see a hand reaching up from the water. At closer look it's a faceless ghoul. Great for pictures.

The pictures don't do it justice. Even looking back through my pictures of being there, it just wasn't the same as being there. Do yourself a favor and go see it! If it's dusk, it will give you the creeps! Totally cool.

Walking down to the dock where the cruise ships stop, we came across the sculpture of "The Black Ghost". While seemingly simple, the "Ghost" has remarkable detail, both from the front and the back. Next to the sculpture is a hand operated bridge (see picture)...More

This harbour is one of the key points in Klaipeda. There are some old buildings and there is this statue, quite singular. It is worth to take a stroll along the river up to the old harbour.

Sometimes in winter there are candles placed inside the ghost. It it the main attraction on the port. You can sit inside and have your photo taken. Beautifully made piece.
