A Transilvanian forest is considered Europe’s “Bermuda Triangle” by the BBC journalists
BBC journalists recently put together list of the top choices forthe world’s scariest forests-
The Hoia-Baciu forest in Cluj was described as one of the most impressive and scary destinations among all of the haunted forests that were investigated! The descriptions that were given by visitors to this spooky place seem to be taken out of a f science fiction movie complete with strange plant life, spooky fog and even aliens!
“ The Hoia-Baciu forest in Transylvania captures a great amount of attention for the wrong reason for over a century” state the BBC channel which got inspired by the American Travel+Leisure magazine when making this top.
The locals believe that this forest – which has a circular meadow in the center – is a portal (to another dimension) and that anyone that crosses it may never come back. There are those that have reportedly entered the portal and survived. But, they said they suffered from anxiety and nausea while they were in that circle.
The trees that grow here are another thing that has added to the spooky factor the forest has. The story, according to author, Mihaita Nagy, goes that they were once tall and straight, now are crooked and have nodes – and that there is no reasonable answer for why this happened to them. .
The other nominees for the most haunted forest are Aokigahara forest in Japan, Isla de las Munecas in Mexico, The Black Forest in Germany and Wychwood in England.
