The most terrifying creatures of Slavic mythology – Part 1 of 3
Have you ever heard the stories about Baba Yaga, Kikimora or the Strzyga? Slavic folktales and mythology are full of creatures and characters that can only be characterized as the most terrifying ones in the world through history. Tonight we will open up that portal to a creepy and chilling world filled with demon-like characters and ghosts and spirits that are neither humans nor animals but still appear and act like both. Expect descriptions and pictures of scary loners of the darkest woods and even to experience close encounters with witch-like creatures lurking in every dark corner of the harrowing tales told to children and adults alike through the ages in and around the Slavic countries. Embrace yourself for an evening with constant goosebumps…and a following sleepless night.
