Without a head she cannot rest in peace.
The Legend of the Turk
Near Tyn Church in the courtyard of Ungelt you may meet a Turk carrying a box. If he allows you a look inside you will see the severed head of a beautiful girl. In medieval days, this young and handsome Turk stayed at an inn at Ungelt. He fell in love with the innkeeper’s daughter and proposed. She was head over toes in love with him and accepted. The merchant Turk had to return home to Constantinople to settle some affairs and promised to marry her upon his return.
After a long wait the girl became impatient and concluded that her lover had jilted her and married someone else. When the Turk came back to Prague, he found out that she was about to marry someone else. He killed her and hid her body in the basement of a building in Ungelt. To atone for his deeds, the ghost of the Turk now haunts the courtyard of Ungelt carrying a box with her head.
