There is a village in the western Serbia area called Zarozje that when a mill fell down it awakened a vampire that is mad and is trying to find someplace else to spend eternity.
A local council advised villagers to put garlic in their pockets and wooden crosses in all the rooms of their homes, typical lengendary ways to repel vampitres.
The vampire is named Sava Savanovic who is considered Serbia's most famous vampire.
Housewife Milka Prokic said about the vampire, "The story of Sava Savanovic is a legend, but strange things did occur in these parts back in the old days. We have inherited this legend from our ancestors , and we keep it alive for the younger generations." Still one of her hands had a string of garlic and the other had a large wooden stake, traditionally used to kill a vampire by piercing his heart. This makes me think she is unsure if it is a real story or legend and is taking precautions to make sure. Afterall, what would it hurt to take precautions against this vampire.
There are those villagers who say they can hear footsteps in the forest where Sava Savanovic was killed by a wooden stake to the heart if he ever existed in the first place , which I highly doubt.
Sava Savanovic drank the blood of those who came to the small shack which worked as a mill on the river Rogatica.
Mico Matic who lives close to the collapsed mill said,"One should always remain calm. It's important not to frighten him, you shouldn't make fun of him. He is just one of the neighbors, you do your best to be on friendly terms with him". But to err on the side of caution, I guess, he had both pants pockets full of garlic
