The country of Romania, once known by its more infamous and ominous name Transylvania, likely conjures up images of vampires, gypsy caravans, werewolves, and bats. Perhaps it recalls more historical tales of Prince Vlad “the Impaler” Dracula and his crusade for Christian freedom against the invading Ottoman Empire. It is certainly a land of mystery and folklore but one of its lesser-known secrets, in the wake of rampant tourism to Dracula’s many castles, is a forest located in northern Romania just west of Cluj-Napoca. This place, known as Hoia Bacui (Shepherd’s Forest) has been nicknamed “Romania’s Bermuda Triangle” and has been dubbed the “World’s Most Haunted Forrest” by many tourists and paranormal investigators alike who have visited the site. In fact, many claim it’s slowly on the rise to becoming Romania’s number one tourist destination, ousting its famous vampire - Dracula.
