Romania Legalizes Witchcraft
31-year-old Gabriela Ciucur will stay in history as the country's first legal witch, after she registered a company dealing with "astrology and contacts with the spiritual world", media reported.
Ciucur spent quite a lot of time arguing with various officials until she convinced them that witchcraft was a sound area of work. At first everyone laughed at her, but they finally caved in.
Now Ciucur charges her clients GBP 3 to 6 to peek into their future, to help them get in touch with the spirits of loved ones, or to unravel what's in the stars.
Witchcraft is quite popular in Romania as many local people believe in the occult, especially in rural areas where legends of Transilvania's count Dracula are still taken quite seriously. All over Eastern Europe women tend to believe in the powers of witches and some often resort to their help when settling a love score, healing a broken heart, or punishing a rival.
