The Slavic mythology is full of deities, spirits, demons and alluring creatures. It is not our intention to scare you and make you look under your bed

If I had to choose a way to die, I’d want to be killed by Rusalka. 🙂
BTW I think we should update Slavic mythology. It constantly evolves.
An evil spirit often depicted wearing an Adidas tracksuit, who lives in communist apartment blocks. He beats and robs visitors. In order to be safe in communist apartment blocks, people offer him sunflower seeds and vodka to calm him down.June 20, 2018 at 4:27 pm #458481
Hah, I really wish the post reactions would be back! 😀June 21, 2018 at 1:10 am #458524
There should be “Baba Yaga” too.June 21, 2018 at 8:07 am #458526
@__3 Baba Jaga is too mainstream. Nobody’s scared of her. Plus when you say her name, westerners think about John Wick. 😀June 21, 2018 at 1:59 pm #458581
@kapitan-denis Nah, I think of this little monster toy of her I had when I was a kid. It was from a series of small rubber toys called Monster in my Pocket. Greatest toys ever, and my favorite was the werewolf. I think of that, and some witch my grandpa used to tell me spooky stories of, the ježibaba.
Also, vodnik kicks ass.June 22, 2018 at 3:43 pm #458655
Muma Paduri? 🙂June 23, 2018 at 8:35 am #458666
Back in the 90s there were plenty of dodgy spirits. Not creepy though, I don’t think.June 23, 2018 at 9:32 am #458667
You had to go to neighbouring SR Yugoslavia to see the actual creepy ones.June 23, 2018 at 11:17 am #458669
@shaokang just imagine if Bulgaria was part of SFR Yugoslavia too, what a collapse would that have been… And the spirits would be much creepier.June 23, 2018 at 12:41 pm #458670
Or there would some sort of smaller union between Serbia and Bulgaria, at least just for the period between 1990 to 2005, just to give the powerhouses of the East to recover and so both countries could preserve cultural and other identities of a nation, but now its pointless – each man for himself 🙂June 23, 2018 at 3:55 pm #458675
@Shaokang nah, I think there would be some wort of Eastern FRY (Bulgaria and Macedonia) and Western FRY (Serbia and Montenegro)…June 23, 2018 at 8:30 pm #458696June 23, 2018 at 8:47 pm #458699
<div class=”bsp-mentions”>@aaaaa Well yeah, we never had problem with alcohol in the 90’s, but buying a bread, oil or sugar was sometimes quite challenging.</div>June 23, 2018 at 10:15 pm #458705
Well, same here – I seem to remember some coupon system from when I was a kid (early 90s). Not to mention the winter of 96-97.
