Forest Hoya Baciu, located near the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca, rightly bears the title of one of the most mysterious places in Europe. It is called the “Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania.” This analogy suggests itself, it disappears people frequent meetings with UFO.
The inhabitants of the surrounding villages prefer not to go to the Hoya Baciu, so as not to incur the wrath of the powerful forces that, in their opinion, live in the forest.Forest before my eyes The main tourist attraction is considered Transylvania Bran Castle, built in the XIV century. They were at one time owned the legendary Vlad the Impaler, better known to us as Count Dracula. However, in recent years more and more tourists tend to visit not only and not so much to Dracula’s castle as the surrounding forest Hoya Baciu, paranormal phenomena which have become almost commonplace.But a little more than 100 years ago it was a forest as the forest . Locals hunted there, pick berries and mushrooms. Ran through the forest well trodden path on which travelers were not afraid to travel at night. Now this road is almost overgrown, and go to the Hoya Baciu night will risk unless extreme. Or obsessed with the paranormal researchers. Which, however, lacking. At the beginning of the last century, the forest ,then still called simply Hoya began to change before our eyes.
Straight tree trunks gradually bent under monstrous angles. Soil overgrown with thick moss. From the forest animals gradually disappeared, followed by almost all birds. Locals whisper that Hoye saw Vlad Tepes, who at one time loved to hunt in these places. It was rumored that thicket took a fancy to the devil himself.
Missing shepherd Vlad Tepes liked to hunt in the Hoya Baciu His sinister reputation forest Hoya began to justify immediately after the First World War. In one of the local villages lived a shepherd nicknamed Baciu “leader”, “leader”. The local inhabitants were engaged in cattle breeding, and therefore Baciu, who grow and sell hundreds of sheep respected. One day in June shepherd drove a flock of 200 heads to the fair in the town of Cluj-Napoca. His path led through the woods. Baku went there early in the morning and. Disappeared.
When the appointed time, he did not appear at the fair, merchants, and wait for the flock, for which have already made a deposit, alarmed. Residents of the city and surrounding villages (in search of a few thousand people attended) meter literally combed the forest, an area of 35 hectares. But no trace of a shepherd, neither the sheep could not be found.
Thieves in these places for a long time was not found, but even if they come from somewhere and killed Baciu, hiding his body to lead such a large flock so that it is not noticed in the surrounding villages – an unrealistic task. Dear people, and the sheep are gone without a trace. A forest has since become known as the Hoya Baciu.
Loop timeTrees under the influence of mystical forces changed their formForest, like a predator, a taste for human blood, demanded more and more victims. For several years in the Hoya Baciu lost a few more people. Their bodies were never found, too. But these tragedies can be attributed to the accident, the attack of wild animals, that is to somehow explain. Others stories smack frank devilry.
For example, two cases that occurred after World War II. Young teacher, who believed not in God nor the devil, went to the Hoya Baciu for mushrooms. Soon the locals found her sitting on the edge. Unhappy completely lost her memory – she does not even remember his name. And, of course, could not answer the question of what happened to her in the woods. On another occasion, five year old girl in the pursuit of a beautiful butterfly ran into the woods and disappeared. Organized search, but found the baby and failed. Only after five years of missing girl – in the same clothes and looks absolutely not changed – came out of the woods, holding the wings catch the butterflies. Baby and could not tell where the disappeared: for her from when she came into the thicket, was only a few minutes.
Educated people like teachers, which was discussed above, despise superstition. Therefore, although the bulk of the locals avoided trips to the Hoya Baciu, some people still went there to pick berries and mushrooms. Not all, but some soon fell ill – people have complained about skin rashes, headache, dizziness, vomiting causeless. Doctors were unable to determine the cause of ailments in completely healthy people. After some time, the patient recovers, but for the Hoya Baciu finally entrenched notoriety.
World fameUFO picture, made by Emil Barney in 1968In the 1960s, a phenomenon Hoya Baciu interested Romanian biologist Alexander CIFTA. He became the first scientist who seriously took up the study of paranormal zone. Over the years, Alexander, despite the danger of crossing the forest and down, slept in the thicket, to hold a photo shoot. Surprisingly, the Hoya Baciu did not cause him any harm. Alexander CIFTA noted that in the depths of the forest there is a strange circular field where there is no vegetation. When comparing soil samples from this glade and forest with the usual no difference in the composition was not found. Hence, the biological reasons for the disappearance of vegetation within a circular field is not.
Alexander CIFTA noted: UFO (usually a circular shape) can be found anywhere in the forest. But in the “bald” in the field of their activity is greatest. When the manifestation of the films after a night shoots researcher noticed another strange feature. Many photos recorded round luminous objects are not perceived with the naked eye. By the way, these balls and now often appear in pictures taken by digital devices. Scientists can not give a reasonable explanation for this, but the locals it is. According to them, the balls – the souls of dead people. The fact that the land of Transylvania abundantly watered with blood – this area in the Middle Ages constantly passed from hand to hand. All this, of course, accompanied by violence. Unfortunate peasants robbed and killed mercilessly and local strongmen, and Hungarians and Romanians and Turks.
In 1968, the business continued CIFTA Romanian military engineer Emil Barney. Shortly after the start of observation he was able to take a picture of a UFO over the treetops. Experts have found that it is really talking about a flying object, the nature of which they do not undertake to explain. It is believed that this is the most accurate and reliable picture of the UFO, made in Romania.
Portal to another world “Bald” Glade – a portal to another world Today in the Hoya Baciu come many urologists from different countries – Germany, France, Great Britain, Hungary. However, paranormal activity in this area in recent years has declined slightly. Not all visitors unable to face the mystical phenomena. However, many of them in the woods watching the glowing orbs (more often – near the “bald” clearing deep in the woods). Researchers sometimes hear strange noises or see flashing lights and shadows. In winter, the snow often appears strange tracks that do not belong to any known on Earth exists. In the photos is still common to see strange shapes and glowing balls that were not visible to the naked eye.
Prestigious publications on ufology, as well as the BBC called Hoya Baciu one of the most interesting areas of the paranormal on the planet. This came even Nicolas Cage, intrigued by the mysterious forest transmissions. The famous Hollywood actor a few days filming a documentary about the Hoya Baciu, who now shows his friends at private parties. Cage sure that the trees in the forest changed its shape under the influence of powerful energy inherent in these places. After this statement, the actor in the Hoya Baciu started coming yoga enthusiasts. They meditate in the woods and try to scoop up the mystical energy from the source.
Inhabitants of the surrounding villages in recent years have found the explanation for all devilry that is happening in the Hoya Baciu. They believe that “bald” clearing in the woods – a portal to another world. Disappeared people simply failed there. A glowing orbs, strange shadows and UFOs – the inhabitants of a parallel universe, accidentally fell into our world.
But there is another version that explains the mysterious phenomena in the Hoya Baciu. Dracula’s castle, which somehow forgotten amid all the hype around the mystical forest, it can affect the surrounding territory of their negative energy and even be a kind of portal that connects our world with the parallel worlds.
