The Prophecies of Baba Vanga (The Bulgarian Nostradamus)


Baba Vanga

‘The future I see as a scene from a movie’, explains the prophetess to people who would ask her about her visions.

Baba Vanga was a blind Bulgarian woman, known as the Bulgarian Nostradamus. She died in 1996 but is credited to have predicted many of the major global shocks during her life, such as the Chernobyl disaster, the exact date of the beginning of the Afghan war and the collapse of the twin towers in New York, the tsunami of 2004, and the war in Syria. And now, another one of her omen seems to begin to unfold: according Baba Vanga, 2016 would be the year that “Muslims will invade Europe”

Find out her predictions for the years to come … Truth, or Myth? 



Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova, known as Baba Vanga

Baba Vanga (meaning Grandmother Vanga in Bulgarian), was born as Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (31 January 1911 – 11 August 1996) and known after her marriage on 10 May 1942 with Dimitar Gushterov, as Vangelia Gushterova.

Baba Vanga was a blind  Bulgarian woman, known as mystic, clairvoyant, and herbalist from the region of Macedonia, who spent most of her life in the Rupite area in the Kozhuh mountains, Bulgaria.

(Read the detailed biography of Baba Vanga here)

During World War II, Vanga attracted believers in her ability to heal and soothsay –a number of people visited her, hoping to get a hint about whether their relatives were alive, or seeking for the place where they died.

She is said to have visited hundreds of thousands of celebrities from around the world, presidents and heads of state, business leaders and politicians, kings and sheiks, famous writers, philosophers and scientists. Millions of people around the world were convinced that she possessed paranormal abilities.

Followers of Vanga believe that she predicted the precise date of her own death, dreaming that she would die on 11 August, and be buried on 13 August. Shortly before that she had said that a ten-year-old blind girl living in France was to inherit her gift, and that people would soon hear about her. Vanga died on 11 August 1996.

Vanga reached news headlines after apparently predicting the 9/11 terror attacks.

Sources such as “The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal” claim that she also foretold the break-up of the Soviet Union, the Chernobyl disaster, the date of Stalin‘s death, the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk, the September 11 attacks and Topalov‘s victory in the world chess tournament.

However, the people who were close to her claim that she never prophesied about Kursk or other subjects circulating the Internet, and that many of the myths about Vanga are simply not true, which ultimately hurts and crudely misrepresents her and her work.

Vanga predictions that are said have yet to happen, include; that the 44th President of the United States will be the last acting US president. Europe will be transformed into an Islamic caliphate and the transformation will be complete in the year 2043. Communism will return to Europe and the rest of the world in 2076. There will be a war on Mars in 3005. Followers of Vanga believe these events could happen. However, due to the subjective nature of many predictions, many remain skeptical. Predicting a specific event before it occurred can be seen as being correct after by coincidence or chance.


Accounts on the predictions of Vanga are often controversial and distorted by the media. One recent attempt to systematically summarize the existing knowledge about Vanga was made in the documentary Vanga: The Visible and Invisible World. first aired on RTV on 31 January 2011 The movie includes interviews with some of the people who met Vanga in person, including; Sergey Medvedev (press secretary to President of Russia Boris Yeltsin in 1995–96; Sergey Medvedev visited Vanga as Yeltsin’s envoy following Vanga’s request to meet her), Neshka Robeva (Bulgarian rhythmic gymnast and coach), Sergey Mikhalkov (Soviet and Russian writer, author of the Soviet Union anthem), Nevena Tosheva (director of the first documentary about Vanga), Kirsan Ilyumzhinov (Kalmyk multi-millionaire businessman and politician). According to the documentary, Baba Vanga predicted Yeltsin’s second electoral victory in 1995, and warned him about his heart condition. Several researchers have studied the phenomenon of Vanga in the attempt to establish whether she has any extraordinary capabilities. One of the first studies was initiated by the Bulgarian government and is described in the 1977 movie Fenomen directed by Nevena Tosheva. Prominent Bulgarian psychiatrists Nicola Shipkovensky and Georgi Lozanov also studied the capabilities of Vanga in an extensive study in the late 50s. Reportedly, some of the studies concluded that about 80% of predictions of Vanga turned out to be accurate.

Scientists about Vanga

In recent years, a lot of popular science books, scientific papers and entire books, exploring the phenomenon of Vanga appeared. Work of physicians, philosophers, sociologists, psychologists, as well as journalists and writers working in the genre of popular science topics. The “Big Encyclopedia of Vanga” can not cover  and comprehend all this huge work in detail, so they have shared the title’s of three of the most interesting books.


Vanga died in 1996 but is said to have predicted many of the major global shocks.

Boris III

In 1942, Vanga predicted that Bulgaria will become a socialist country. She told the Bulgarian tzar Boris III, who visited her on 8 April 1942, that he will die in August 1943, and that red flag will rise above the palace. The King died on August 28 1943, and in the autumn of 1944 Bulgaria became a communist country.





1952: Josef Stalin

Joseph Stalin

Joseph Stalin

Vanga’s biggest problem with politics came in 1952, when she predicted that Josef Stalin will go into the nether world and the Soviet Union will fall apart”. She was thrown in jail for her prediction. Stalin died on 16 October 1952  and the Soviet Union collapsed, but his death did not save Vanga from political persecution.




1980: Kursk


K-141 Kursk

One of the predictions that got her famous in Russia was made in 1980.

“At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it.”

The prediction did not make any sense back then. Twenty years on, it did. A Russian nuclear submarine perished in an accident in August of 2000. The sub was named after the city of Kursk, which by no means was covered with water.

2001: The 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers 

9265229_origIn 1989, Vanga predicted the 9/11 disaster. She said;

“Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.”.

The world trade center collapsed on September 11, 2001.The steel birds in the prediction are the terrorists who drove the planes into the trade center.

2004: The Indonesia tsunami of 2004


The 2004 Indonesia Tsunami

 “a big wave will cover a large coast with people and villages where everything disappears under water.”  






The 44th president of the USA will be a black


President of the United States of America Barack Obama

Baba Vanga predicted that

the 44th president of the USA will be a black president.

She was true as Barrack Obama was elected for 44th president of the US.

She also predicted that

Things will start deteriorate for the U.S, and that the “African Americanpresident would be the last acting president of the northern country.

That can partly be described as true, as the US suffered through one of their worst economic crisis.



2043: Complete control of Rome

A “great Islamic war” would begin in Syria culminating in complete control of Rome, in 2043.



According Baba Vanga,
2016 would be the year that “Muslims will invade Europe”.

She also stated that
There would be established a definitive Caliphate and that Europe “would cease to exist”, to become a continent “almost empty “and” wastelands devoid of any form of life. ”
