Hoia-Baciu Forest has been called the “Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania”. It became famous in the 1960′s when biologist Alexandru Sift took several intriguing photos of flying disc-shaped objects in the sky. People that enter the forest claim to feel ill or develop rashes and electronic devices malfunction. Several investigators claim it is due to supernatural activity.
There are people who believe the forest is a gateway to another dimension. Stories have been told of people entering the area forgetting how they spent their time there or even losing all sense of time.
There was a story about a 5 year old entering the forest and getting lost only to reemerge looking 5 years older but her clothes were untouched, exactly the same way as when she entered.
