20 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Baba Vanga, the Blind Mystic

Baba Vanga is one of the most mysterious figures of our modern history. The blind mystic has helped thousands of people with her prophecies and has foretold a lot about the future of our world.


Every now and then, we hear about gifted people who have the ability to see the past and the future. If you believe in these things, you are certainly familiar with the mystics of our time as well as the past.

Myths about the Bulgarian prophetess emerge every year, even more than two decades after her passing.

It is understandable if you do not believe in her gifts or in any of her prophecies but it is also a fact that not one or two of her predictions about the world have come to be true.
