  • Casting Curses and Love Spells with the Most Powerful Witches in Romania

    In Romania, the homeland of Dracula and superstition, witches were pretty much spared from the medieval witch-hunts that plagued most of Europe and killed 100,000 women. In fact, witchcraft here is not only alive; it’s thriving, and it’s even feared by politicians. There are hundreds of witches in the country, and they make and break marriages, cure diseases, cast or release people from good and evil spells, and predict the future. Supposedly, one in ten Romanians visits a witch.

    Jilava prison is a 30-minute drive from Bucharest. During Ceaucescu's communist regime, it was the most notorious prison in the country - but today most of the inmates are white collar criminals like Bodgan Paiu, who made a fortune with Internet fraud. The Romanian government is now planning to clamp down on Internet crime. But so far, the newly formed special police unit based in the capital seems unable to rise to the challenge.

But other locals who have long been complaining about noise and disorder in the area have welcomed the measure. Reader comments in Bucharest newspapers also suggest public support for the wall.

  • Romania: Unused Billions | European Journal

    Romania's government has resigned. Its tough austerity measures brought thousands of Romanians out on the streets in protest. But with EU assistance, the country's educational system, at least, might be helped. Schools in Romania have been subject to drastic cuts. Teachers have been laid off and schools closed. School buildings in the countryside are often too small, meaning that the children have to attend classes in shifts. Romania could apply to the EU for financial aid to remedy the situation. But it appears that the eastern European nation lacks the personnel and know-how to negotiate the bureaucratic hurdles of the application process. Even when such funding does make its way to Romania, it often does not reach the people it is intended for.

    Wine-making is a tradition that goes back thousands years in Romania. At various times in the past, up to 200,000 hectares of land in the region have been devoted to grape-growing. Today, pioneering young vintners in places like the Târnava valley of Transylvania are trying to revive that tradition. European Union membership has been a boon for Romanian vintners. It's opened new markets and brought capital into the area. But local winemakers still face many obstacles, among them local bureaucrats, who often demand bribes in exchange for approving export licenses and awarding EU support and subsidies.

These are the top 10 most mysterious things in Romania from the location of Dracula's tomb and his creepy castle to Baciu Forest! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 4. The Buzau Mountains Mystery The Buzau Mountains are a beautiful place to see in Romania, but by no means does that not make them mysterious. If you dare to walk through the mountains here, you may come across, these strange cave complexes. What’s strange about this place, is that the caves contain a mysterious language encarved on the walls that no one is quite able to decipher. The walls contain several messages that many people are dying to know what they mean! There’s also depictions of mysterious beings. Some believe these carvings come from the Luana Kingdom which little is known about. Tales of people who lived in this kingdom say that they had access to magical water that could heal anyone. Could this be their language written on the wall? The tales ends with the kingdom dying out due to the sun exploding. What might this have been a reference too? Others believe it’s simply from christian missionaries who settled on romanian land around 300 AD. But it still remains a mystery exactly who wrote it. 3. 36,000 Year Old Footprints How long exactly have people been living in this mysterious land? Archaeological discoveries seem to prove the existence of a family of 6 or 7 individuals with at least one child living in the caves of the Carpathian Mountains. Could these have possibly been some of Europe's first inhabitants as well? Radiocarbon dating of two bear fossils below the footprints suggest that they were indeed 36,000 years old. How these footprints were able to survive the test of time is still somewhat remarkable. Here in this photo, you see some bear scratchings, proving humans weren’t the only ones to inhabit the caves. The findings were sufficient enough to be documented into a peer review journal. Who exactly were the mysterious people to once live here and where did they go? Were they attacked by a bear? The timeline seems to put them as some of the earliest home sapians but further research is needed. 2. Where is Dracula’s Tomb People who are fascinated with Romania’s history are often intrigued with Count Dracula. The vampire we know from movies is a fictional character but the real person he was named after, also known as, Vlad the Impaler, actually did have a taste for blood. He was born in 1431 in the Sighisoara,Romania, in this ordinary house, in the central region of Transylvania. He didn’t actually suck the blood from his victims but he was known to dip bread into buckets of blood from the people he impaled and would eat a meal while watching his victims being executed. The search for the grave of dracula has remained a mystery, that’s bothered many people. Some claim he was buried in the Snagov Monastery on an island near the capital of Bucharest. when people came across it in the 1930, it appeared as though he was no longer there, possibly moving on his own. People still come to the altar at this monastery to pay their respects. Others claim he was buried in Naples, Italy but this was quickly debunked. Historians believe he was beheaded by an Ottoman assassin and as a cruel twist of irony, had his head impaled on a stake. After it was preserved in honey and presented to the Sultan. Hard to come back to life after that. His final resting place is unknown. 1.Mystery of Dracula’s True Castle Vampires lovers from all around the world flock to the Bran Castle in Transylvania and is extremely popular for the 500,000 people per year who visit it. But are they being mislead? This picturesque fortress is positioned on the top of a cliff in Brasov County. But the true mystery about this place is that people still aren’t really too sure if Vlad the Impaler even lived here! There’s no historical evidence of him ever residing at Bran Castle. Historians know the true residence was at Poenari on a remote clifftop that’s much less easy on the eyes and was constructed by slaves. He even constructed a different palace/fortress to defend against the Ottomans later on in his life. Many tourists are tricked into believing that he resided at Bran Castle, when the reality is that he might have just visited it a couple of times. It would also be extremely difficult for tourists to access the real lair of Dracula that requires a mass hike. Nonetheless, it’s still a pretty creepy place to go when you take a look at the artwork and the armor on the walls. Did Vlad the Impaler eat blood soaked blood at this table in Castle Bran? What other gruesome atrocities he possibly committed at his residence at Poenari is still quite puzzling.

Wine-making is a tradition that goes back thousands years in Romania. At various times in the past, up to 200,000 hectares of land in the region have been devoted to grape-growing. Today, pioneering young vintners in places like the Târnava valley of Transylvania are trying to revive that tradition. European Union membership has been a boon for Romanian vintners. It's opened new markets and brought capital into the area. But local winemakers still face many obstacles, among them local bureaucrats, who often demand bribes in exchange for approving export licenses and awarding EU support and subsidies.

From unknown homeless person to celebrated star of the art scene - and back on the street. The Romanian Ion Barladeanu went on a rollercoaster ride from success to failure.Ion Barladeanu lived for many years in the cellar of a Bucharest apartment building. During the Ceausescu era, he began making collages from old magazines. It was risky work, because many of his collages are biting criticism of the regime. Two years ago, galleries and art critics finally noticed Barladeanu and his unique mixture of Pop Art, Dada, and Surrealism. His work was exhibited in Paris, London, and Basel. But then his new friends dropped him again.

But about 40 years ago the island in southern Romania had to be evacuated to because of a hydroelectric plant being installed. The authorities promised residents that they could relocate to the downstream island of Simian and that everything would be rebuilt there. But Simian is now a waste land.

Once a year, thousands of Roma women from around Bulgaria travel to the city of Stara Zagora for an open-air brides market. Money, not love, is the first priority.The brides market is a tradition in Stara Zagora. Women are only allowed to be married within specific clans. The wife of the current clan chief was married at the age of 14. The brides today range in age from 14 to 20 years old, and the brides' families are in control. The parents often have to provide dowries worth thousands of Euros - and that's not an easy burden to carry.

Ten years ago, a number of eastern European rivers were contaminated by cyanide after a toxic spill at a gold reprocessing plant in northern Romania. Residents are protesting against efforts at the plant to resume the extraction of gold by using cyanide.It was one of Europe's worst-ever chemical disasters. In January 2000, the Sasar, the Tisza and the Danube were contaminated by a spill of at least 100,000 cubic meters of water containing cyanide which had originated at the Aurul gold processing plant in Baia Mare, northern Romania. The plant has now been bought up by a Russian company, which wants to resume the extraction of gold using cyanide. Residents are up in arms and have turned to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg - which already ruled against the Romanian state last year in a separate case concerning residents' rights to a healthy and protected environment.
