This legend is about howlers. They are scary creatures from Serbia. There are not too many signs of them. Some people do not even know they exist.
In Zaječar, they have been seen a lot. A legend says that if someone sees them, that person will die the next day in huge pain.
Some howlers scream like a new born baby, and the others somewhat like a wolf or bear. Howlers look like small children, with no hair and some of them have long nails. Their skin is grey and they look like poor little children who are four years old.
If you hear a howler around your house, that means that someone in your house will die.
Today, this legend is not so scary and it is used to scare children not to stay too late outside. I think this legend is lame and interesting. This is my favourite legend so far.
There are a lot of legends in my country, but I find the legend about Sava Savanović most interesting.
Sava Savanović is said to have lived in an old water mill. It is said that he killed and drank blood of the millers who came to the water mill.
In other cultures, vampires are usually plain and slim, but in my country, vampires are tall, plump and strong.
A lot of people say that they saw Sava drink children's blood and strangle young women. It is said that there are a lot of witnesses to Sava's attacks. If you ask people near Bajina Bašta about Sava, you will get the most information about him, his attacks, tragedies and much more.
Legends from my country are super interesting and full of mysteries. I recommend everyone to explore other mysteries, because it can be fun, intense and very interesting.
