I don't know if the climate puts them off (it must be hot in all that black) or whether the Federal Government has extended its "Stop the Boats" policy to also include "Stop the Brooms", but even at Halloween the most magical thing you're likely to experience is your bus or train arriving on time.
|He's waiting for you at Witches' Hill|
On the Curonian Spit, near the small seaside resort town of Juodkrante, is Witches' Hill, a home for witches, goblins, dragons, the devil and host of other characters.

|Someone or something is always watching you on Witches' Hill|
This reputation was cemented during the nineteenth century when it became a favourite spot for Lithuanians to celebrate the summer solstice; a time when it was thought witches were on their way to meet with other supernatural beings.
For the past three decades, sculptors have congregated here and assembled more than 80 oak sculptures bringing to life old legends and stories.
And so the number of mythical creatures continue to grow.
The hill naturally has a light and dark side, and this has created obvious homes for those sculptures representing the good and those representing the bad.
