This Abandoned Church In The Czech Republic Is Going To Haunt Your Dreams
June 23, 2015
If you unknowingly walk into St George's church in the Czech Republic, you might need a change of pants.
Sitting in the pews are haunting statues of ghosts that represent church-goers from the past.
The church was abandoned in the 1960s after the roof collapsed during a funeral service - locals considered this an omen.
Four decades later, a local artist named Jakub Hadrava was brought in to attract visitors and investment.
Hadrava says the figures represent the ghosts of Germans who lived in Lukova before World War II and who came to pray at this church every Sunday.
Hadrava's installation draws in crowds from all over the world, raising funds for the church's repair.
