‘Vampire’ awakens in Serbia

Get your garlic, crosses and stakes ready: a bloodsucking vampire is on the loose.

Or so say villagers in the tiny Serbian hamlet of Zarozje, nestled between lush mountains and spooky thick forests. They say Sava Savanovic, Serbia's most famous legendary vampire ghost, has awakened and is spreading fear — and a potential tourist opportunity — through the remote village.

A local council warned villagers to stay safe from vampires, although the rumours appeared designed more to attract visitors to the impoverished region bordering Bosnia.
