About Europa - Stories and Myths

Every nation has its own beliefs and myths that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. It is no different with the people from our region, who, in addition to the myths of death, life and love, seem to have believed a lot in supernatural, evil creatures that are stilltalked about with a dose of fear. Myths are stories that people tell to explain events in nature or history. The mythology of the Slavic peoples, including the Serbs, is very vivid and colorful. There is no man who has not heard of fairies, howlers, vampires, different types of ghosts, but also the famous Bogeyman… The Screamer (Drekavac) is a creature from the mythology of the South Slavs. The belief is spread throughout Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro. According to the legend, the screamer is a material manifestation of a dead, unbaptized man (according to some stories, a young boy) who cannot find peace, so he persecutes those who have sinned in his life. According to legend, the Screamer is a small, hairy creature, with long and sharp claws on its toes and a large head on a thin neck.
