They say the forest is haunted, or an unexplainable energy hot-spot. Well, nothing happened to me, I didn't feel anything, no mystical trance, no spooky energies, nothing at all. On a second thought, I did feel something: pain. This forest is not neglected. It is...More

This forest is amazing, the air is fresh, the trees have strange shapes and its history is frightening!

Had a great time on a night tour of Hoia Baciu forest. Can't say it's actually haunted but it was fun to hear the stories and we had a nice hike.
