Restaurant built inside coffin opens in Ukraine
The bizarre eaterie is the world`s first
Undertakers in Ukraine have built the world`s first coffin restaurant, serving a range of death-related dinners, according to Telegraph.This huge casket, which is 20 metres long, six metres wide and six metres high, is decorated with wreaths and dozens of normal-sized coffins.
Morbid diners can browse the funeral paraphernalia before ordering from a menu that includes "Nine Day" and "Forty Day" salads - named after local mourning rituals - and an ominous-sounding dish called "Let`s meet in paradise".
Single candles on the tables contribute to the funereal mood.
Pictures of the bizarre eaterie have been posted on www.kava.lviv.ua, a local Ukrainian website.
The coffin restaurant, called Eternity, is the work of a funeral parlour in the town of Truskavets, in the west of the country near the Polish border.
The undertakers hope that their restaurant will be confirmed as the world’s biggest coffin, attracting tourists to a region best known for its mineral-rich bathing waters.
"Thirty cubic metres of pine have been used for the construction,`` said Andri, one of those behind the new enterprise, ahead of its recent opening.
"It`s our director Stepan Pyrianyk who had the idea. He loves his work and reckons the project will bring tourists to Truskavets.``
A spokeswoman for Guinness World Records said that the biggest coffin title was currently unclaimed, and that they had yet to receive an application from the Ukraine.
