A VAMPIRE on the loose in Serbia, the country’s residents are being warned.

Garlic sales in the region of Bajina Basta are booming after a local council issued the warning of a possible escaped vampire.

It’s all very well for people who don’t live in the area to laugh at our fears but nobody in the region is in any doubt that vampires do exist,” said Mr Vujetic.

A vamp is a woman who allures and exploits men, so grab her extract her teeth and call her (G)umpire.

I'm from Croatia, a country next to Serbia. This case is quite interesting because they are not known to be a superstitious people, contradictory to what the article says. And the legend of their vampire i've never heard. In any case, i'll try to keep everyone posted about this unsual Balkans case :)

  Well I've seen Mickey Mouse walking down Broadway,so he must be real to. These people must be seriously uneducated to believe in this rubbish. Sorry no offence meant.

Hi, Boris, it's nice to bump into a fellow countryman on the world wide web. If only we were from the same parallel universe too... because superstition is rampant in this neighbourhood.  

Especially in Serbia, have you not heard of "Vlaška magija" (the magic of Vlah people, they brought their beliefs from Romania) and how serious a lot of people takes it still?

(Nothing offensive in that fact, it's part of their heritage and found its way into my heritage too. What not to love about good, old-fashioned vampire story? That has roots in true weird events ;) )

Interesting . . . Croatia was the site of one of the first vampire epidemics of the modern age. In 1672 Giure Grando, late of Khring on the Istrian peninsula, Croatia, apparently returned from the grave and caused many deaths.

The Bosnian "Lampir" is the name of the oldest recorded vampire Meho Lampir.

I’m the vampire in this symbiosis, leave the hatopus alone :D

There are loads of folk vampire stories... or vampire folk stories... over here, some as “new” as early 20th century.
Today, I can’t say anyone truly believes in vampires, but every village or part of any town has its house with bad history and more-less inexplicable goings-on.
I heard Sava the first Serbian vampire Savanović story, I know he was a real person before he died and got up as a vampire, but I didn’t know the actual house was still there. I’m absolutely certain he was not the first Serbian vampire, since the belief is much older than Sava and his house.

It reminds me, few years ago there was this cute story about possible vampire in Serbia... a young boy has a grandfather who’s sitting all day, stopped communicating, just stares blank in the distance and sometimes goes out to wander around, all pale and expressionless... god help the not superstitious folk that bumps into him in provincial twilight... being not known to be superstitious people, his family came to conclusion he must turned into a vampire. No, not dementia or stroke or whatever, he obviously has become a vampire.
