  1. Located in the northwestern Bohemia town of Luková, the ‘Church of Nine Ghosts’ first fell into disrepair after the ceiling caved in during a funeral service in 1968. Locals took that as a bad omen, attributing the structural failure to a curse, the superstitious congregation in the Czech village of Lukova abandoned their small church to the elements. For decades the ornate wood and plaster-work interior of St George’s has steadily deteriorated. But many residents saw the church as an important part of the town’s history, and wanted to see it restored. The figures represent the ghosts of Sudeten Germans who lived in Lukova before World War Two and who came to pray at this church every Sunday. Artist Jakub Hadrava is responsible for the ghostly figures which now inhabit the church. Since his work was added the church has seen a huge influx of tourists from counties as far away as Brazil, Australia and Germany. The thousands of visitors who have turned up have now left behind enough money to get much needed repair work done to the church. At first there are only nine ghosts sat within the pews, this has since increased to sixteen and they can be seen now standing throughout the church. This place had been something i had wanted to see for a long time and something of a holy grail for me (excuse the pun) It took us a 4hr drive on a baking hot day with 4 other people cramped into the car to get to this place from where we were based but it was worth it in the end. Anyway, here is a small selection of photographs from our visit. Hope you enjoy. As always, thanks for looking
