If you do not know where to look then you will miss this piece for sure. I am not sure if it is a black ghost but I named him "the reaper". It is an amazing piece of work and worth the walk down the...More

If you’re coming off a cruise ship, you should walk straight pass this sculpture, which is next to the old mill. It’s a little creepy, especially as it is hollow inside!

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.
