Baba Vanga (born January 31, 1911, Strumica, Ottoman Empire – Died August 11, 1996, Sofia, Bulgaria), birth name Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova, known after her marriage as Vangelia, a blind Bulgarian mystic, clairvoyant. He was a herbalist who spent most of his life in Bulgaria, in the Kozhuh mountains, in the Yer Rupite region. He is claimed to have paranormal abilities. Zheni Kostadinova claimed in 1997 that millions of people believe they have paranormal abilities.
Vanga was born as a premature baby in 1911 in Strumica, which was then part of the Ottoman Empire, as the daughter of Pando and Paraskeva Surchev. A name was not given to Vanga until it was determined whether she would live according to tradition. When Vanga first cried, her babysitter went out into the street and asked a stranger to name her. She suggested the foreign name Andromaha, but it was not accepted because it was Greek. Another foreigner suggested the Greek name Vangelia, and this proposal was accepted.
In childhood, Vanga was an ordinary child with brown eyes and blond hair. His father was an activist of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization. He was drafted into the Bulgarian Army during World War I. While Vanga's father was in the military, her mother died. This situation caused Vanga to spend most of her childhood with her neighbors and close family friends. After the war, Strumica was ceded to Yugoslavia, and Yugoslav authorities arrested Vanga's father for his pro-Bulgarian ideas and confiscated all of the family's property.
Vanga was seen as a smarter child than her peers. He is said to have played "healing" games with his friends when he was little.
Her father later married another woman, and Vanga had a stepmother.
A turning point in her life was a hurricane (this claim was not confirmed in meteorological records at the time) and hurled Vanga 2 km away. Vanga was later found very frightened and her eyes were covered with sand and dust, so she could not open her eyes due to severe pain. No improvement efforts have yielded results. Only a partial operation was performed with little money, so it was not possible for him to see again.
In 1925, Vanga was taken to a school for the blind in Zemun, where she spent three years. During this time she was taught to read Braille, and besides playing the piano, she did knitting, cooking, and cleaning jobs. After the death of her stepmother, she had to go home to take care of her younger siblings. His family was very poor financially and had to work all day.
Vanga had been quite healthy in previous years, but in 1939 she contracted Pleurisy. In the doctor's opinion, he would soon die. Despite the doctor's misconceptions that he died at a very young age, he actually recovered quickly and to an acceptable degree.
II. During World War II, more and more people believed in Vanga. They came to him in hopes of getting a clue as to whether relatives of the visitors were alive. On April 8, 1942, the Bulgarian Tsar III. Boris also visited him. On May 10, 1942, Vanga married Dimitar Gushterov. Recently married, Dimitar and Vanga moved to Petrich. Dimitar later joined the Bulgarian Army and was forced to go to Greek Macedonia, which was once annexed by Bulgaria. Her husband fell into another illness, alcoholism, in 1947 and eventually died on April 1, 1962.
Vanga died on August 11, 1996 from breast cancer. Huge crowds attended his funeral, including many statesmen.
To fulfill Vanga's will, her house in Petrich was turned into a museum and opened its doors to visitors on May 5, 2008. It is claimed that he made many prophecies from the end of the Second World War to the death of Gandhi, from the September 11 attacks to Obama's becoming the President of the USA.
