The Most Terrifying Church in the World
When Czech artist Jakub Hadrava was asked to help transform a dilapidated village church, he knew he would have his work cut out.
Thankfully he came up with a frightfully good idea.
Mr Hadrava has helped secure the future of the 14th century St George’s church in Lukova after creating a spooky art installation that features a collection of hooded ‘ghosts’ that line the pews and aisles.
The church, which is in the north-western Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, had initially fallen into disrepair in 1968 after the roof collapsed during a funeral service.
These veiled statues represent the ghosts of Sudeten Germans who lived in Lukova, before World War II, and used to come and pray in this church.
