The Haunted Forest of Hoia Baciu

Most people associate Transylvania with Dracula but far stranger things are out there. Just outside the city of Cluj-Napoca lies the Hoia Baciu forest, a place so strange people have begun calling it the Romanian Bermuda Triangle.

The forest became famous in the late 1960’s after biologist Alexandru Sift captured several photos of a flying disk-shaped object while documenting the forest wildlife. During the 1970’s, the area was a considered a UFO hotspot and multiple sightings were reported. Since then, the area has attracted skeptics and believers alike, in their search to either prove or disprove the strange phenomena going on in this haunted forest.

To the locals, the Hoia Baciu forest has always been a place of fear and mysterious otherworldly events. It is named after a shepherd that disappeared in the forest, along with his herd of 200 sheep. The local people avoid going into the forest due to the many strange apparitions. They have seen strange and unexplained lights dancing in the dark and heard disembodied voices deep inside the woods. It is said that sometimes people became obsessed with the voices and visions and once the forest got hold of them, they were never seen again.
