RDP WEDNESDAY: CORPSE
No matter how you want to approach this, St. George’s Church in the Czech Republic is a Church for ghosts.
The church, constructed in 1352 fell into disrepair and when efforts were made to restore it in 2012 the artwork that was added to the building were plaster figures of the of parishioners who lived in Lukova before World War Two and who came to pray at this church every Sunday.
The shrouded figures are sitting in the pews, standing in the back of the church some of them are sitting close enough to each other to touch. Even though the figures are definitely human in shape, none of those figures could ever be mistaken for being alive, so I find it curious they are there to represent living ( once upon a time ) people.
Don’t get me wrong, that macabre touch is what I find interesting about this Church and it’s ghostly parishioners.
Because like I said, no matter how you approach this Saint George’s Church is a church for ghosts and I am thinking this would be a great place to visit around Halloween or any night at all.
