Bulgaria Town Predicted to Become Balkan Jerusalem

Society | June 2, 2008, Monday // 00:00

Bulgaria's southwestern town of Petrich is soon to become the Jerusalem of the Balkans according to the Standart Daily.

Only in the past month the town has been visited by tourists from Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Russia, England, Germany, Italy, Japan and India.

The town owes its magic to the famous clairvoyant Vangelia Gushterova, known as Baba (Grandmother) Vanga. Vanga lived in Petrich since 1942 until her death. The neighborhood near Vanga's church, St Petka, is recognized as a place charged with powerful positive energy.

After many years of anticipation, the museum of Baba Vanga opened doors in Petrich on May 5 at 11 a.m. at the house where the internationally acknowledged clairvoyant worked and helped visitors from all over the world.

In a less then a month the museum's guest book has been filled with comments with new ones written everyday, all glorifying Vanga's psychic abilities and praising her for the help she has offered to many through the years.

By October 5, when the Orthodox Church celebrates the day of St Petka, the exhibit and ritual premises at the monastery complex near the church and the tourist accommodations are also expected to be finished. There is a project for a botanical garden to be created behind the monastery
