Piramida w Rapie

Piramida w Rapie

Pyramid in Rapa is a tomb of Farenheit family. In eighteenth century they bought the village called Angerapp from Christoph von Rap (this is where the current name of the village comes from). Family members were highly educated and traveled a lot. They were very interested in the matter of afterlife and decided to secure protection of their bodies after death. Hence, they constructed a tomb modeled on Egyptian pyramids. The designer of the building was Bartel Thorwaldsen. On top of that, according to some research, Farenheit pyramid was built in carefully chosen location. Apparently, it’s a place of positive energy radiation between earth and space. During the wars in 1914-1915 and in 1945, the tomb was destroyed and this is how we can see it today.
