Sculpture "Juodasis Vaiduoklis" ("The Black Ghost")

If you have not heard yet about the mystical ghost, which was mentioned in and old manuscript - you will now. If you have not seen the horrendous, grotesque figure yet - you will. But the best thing is to befriend the spectral creature, many riches and fortune awaits the daring. 
Near the castle remains, just past the swing bridge, there is a bronze sculpture of a ghostly silhouette that looks like it is just stepping out of the water via the shore line. 2.4 metres in height, the sculpture holds its own secret - everyone who comes near the frightful sculpture will be greeted by it.
According to one legend, in 1595, one of Klaipėda Castle guards, Hans von Heidi, saw a ghost. The mystical visitor warned the guard that the city’s supplies of grain and timber may be running out, and with that, it vanished just as it had appeared.
