A Day Trip in Romania's Haunted Forest: Hoia Baciu

Alex With: Alex 25
Let me tell you about Hoia Baciu forest: a seemingly quiet 250 ha woodland near Cluj-Napoca that became famous in 1968 when a UFO was photographed right above it. After that, strange energy readings and lights were recorded by visitors and scientists. Even the vegetation looks weird and there's an eerie feeling about it, some saying it's haunted. Would you like to see it for yourself?

Moments to expect during the haunted forest tour:

  • A trip to Poiana Rotunda

    The round clearing is considered to be the main spot of the forest where various researchers have recorded unusual data and paranormal activity over time. It's almost perfectly round-shaped and no vegetation grows in the middle except for grass at exactly the same height. How weird is that?

    We will investigate the clearing and make our way deeper in the forest using EMF meters, a Geiger counter, photo cameras or other devices depending on the situation.
