Serbian village puts out vampire warning, advises to stock up on garlic

If western Serbia smells a little garlicky these days, locals will tell you it’s for good cause.

Oddity Central reports that villagers in Zarozje are stocking up on cloves of the pungent bulbs due to fears that Sava Savanovic, one of the area’s most fearsome vampires, has resumed his blood-sucking activities after centuries-long slumber.

We’re not talking about love-struck vampires who sparkle in the sun either. Eastern Europe has established itself as Vampire Ground Zero when it comes to fanged folklore and Serbia’s Savanovic is a particularly nasty fellow.

Legend has it he would kill and drink the blood of the peasants who came to grind their grain at his watermill on the Rogačica river.


A local family bought the building in the 1950s and re-opened it as a profitable tourist attraction. But they were so terrified by what may be lurking within that they refused to go near it — even to perform repairs.

Recent trouble began when the old mill collapsed due to decades of neglect.

Now that the mill lies in a pile of rotted wood, everyone is terrified. Particularly since mayor Miodrag Vujetic told Orange UK there had been numerous reports of "strange growls, neither animal nor human" coming from the mill, along with sightings of a "dark tall individual" standing next to the mill in the "dead of night."

"People are worried, everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for somewhere else and possibly other victims is terrifying people. We are all frightened," Vujetic said.

And thanks to the wintery time of year, repairs will have to wait until spring. So to prepare citizens, city council has put out an official vampire warning and encouraged residents to fill their every room of their homes with garlic and holy crosses.


Vampire hunters, book your flights to Belgrade. This could be your big chance.
