Hoia-Baciu Forest, Romania
Step foot in the Hoia-Baciu forest and you’ll quickly see why it’s renowned as one of the most haunted forests in the world. This forest spreads across 250 hectares in Transylvania, Romania, and boasts an eerie atmosphere. Many paranormal instances have also been reported, some even call it the “Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania.”
The forest gained interest in the 1960s when Alexandru Sift, a well-known scientist, captured a photo of an unidentified flying object hovering over the forest. My Best Place says after this incident, other unexplainable events started occurring. For starters, a shepherd and his 200 sheep suddenly went missing and were never found again. The source also says a 5-year-old girl disappeared and reappeared 5-years later without aging and wearing the same clothes. Those who were brave enough to step foot in the forest without disappearing have reported severe rashes, headaches, burns, and high fever.
