Baba Vanga Biography, Wiki

Vanga was born on 3 October 1911 to Pando Surchev (7 May 1873 – 8 November 1940) and Paraskeva Surcheva in Strumica. She was a premature baby who suffered from health complications.

In accordance with local tradition, the baby was not given a name until it was deemed likely to survive. When the baby first cried out, a midwife went into the street and asked a stranger for a name. The stranger proposed Andromaha (Andromache), but this was rejected for being “too Greek” during a period of anti-Hellenic sentiment within Macedonian Bulgarian society. Another stranger’s proposal was a Greek name, but since she was Bulgarian: Vangelia (from Evangelos).

In her childhood, Vangelia was an ordinary child with brown eyes and blonde hair. Her father was an Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization activist, conscripted into the Bulgarian Army during World War I, and her mother died soon after.

This left Vanga dependent on the care and charity of neighbours and close family friends for much of her youth. After the war, Strumica was ceded to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (i.e. Yugoslavia). Yugoslav authorities arrested her father because of his pro-Bulgarian activity. They confiscated all his property and the family fell into poverty for many years. 

Vanga was considered intelligent for her age. Her inclinations started to show up when she herself thought out games and loved playing “healing” – she prescribed some herbs to her friends, who pretended to be ill. Her father, being a widower, eventually remarried, thus providing a stepmother to his daughter.

According to her own testimony, a turning point in her life occurred when a ‘tornado’ allegedly lifted her into the air and threw her in a nearby field. She was found after a long search. Witnesses described her as very frightened, and her eyes were covered with sand and dust, she was unable to open them because of the pain.

There was money only for a partial operation to heal the injuries she had sustained. This resulted in a gradual loss of sight.

In 1925, Vanga was brought to a school for the blind in the city of Zemun, in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, where she spent three years, and was taught to read Braille, play the piano, as well as do knitting, cooking, and cleaning. 

After the death of her stepmother, she had to go back home to take care of her younger siblings. Her family was very poor, and she had to work all day.

In 1939, Vanga contracted pleurisy, although it remained largely inactive for some years. The doctor’s opinion was that she would die soon, but she quickly recovered. The house of Vanga in PetrichVanga’s last house (built-in 1970) in Rupite, Petrich

During World War II, Yugoslavia was invaded and dismembered by the Axis powers and Strumica was annexed by Bulgaria.

At that time 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 the place where they died. On 8 April 1942, the Bulgarian tzar Boris III visited her.

On 10 May 1942, Vanga married Dimitar Gushterov, a Bulgarian soldier from the village of Krandzhilitsa near Petrich, who had come asking for the killers of his brother but had to promise her not to seek revenge. Shortly before marriage, Dimitar and Vanga moved to Petrich, where she soon became well-known.

Dimitar was then conscripted in the Bulgarian Army and had to spend some time in Northern Greece, which was annexed by Bulgaria at the time. He got another illness in 1947, fell into alcoholism, and eventually died on 1 April 1962.

She continued to be visited by dignitaries and commoners. After World War II, Bulgarian politicians and leaders from different Soviet Republics, including, reportedly General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Leonid Brezhnev, sought her counsel; in the 1990s, a church was built in Rupite by Bogdan Tomalevski with money left by her visitors. 

Vanga died on 11 August 1996 from breast cancer. Her funeral attracted large crowds.

Fulfilling Vanga’s last will and testament, her Petrich house was turned into a museum, which opened its doors for visitors on 5 May 2008.

Baba Vanga’s Predictions

Baba Vanga’s predictions, including those listed below, were said to have an 85 percent success rate.

  • The Kursk nuclear submarine disaster: In 1980, Baba said Kursk will be “covered with water and the whole world will weep over it” claiming the disaster would happen in August 1999. The Russian sub sank in August 2000, killing all aboard.
  • ISIS: The Bulgarian is also said to have predicted the rise of terror group ISIS.
  • Syrian gas attack: Before she died, Baba warned of a showdown in the country, where “Muslims would use chemical warfare against Europeans”. This is thought to be similar to the suspected gas attack Assad launched against his own people.
  • Brexit: While some crackpot conspiracy theorists claims Baba predicated Brexit – she actually incorrectly said Europe will “cease to exist” by 2017, something which obviously has not happened.
  • She claimed the 44th US President would be black – however she also said he or she would be the last President, which again did not happen.
  • In 1989, she claimed the “American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds… and innocent blood will be gushing”. Some believe this is a reference to the September 11 attacks on the US in 2001.
  • Vladimir Putin will win the 2018 election. In 1979, during a meeting with writer Valentin Sidorov, Vanga said: “All will thaw, as if ice, only one remain untouched – Vladimir’s glory, glory of Russia.”
  • World War 3: Shortly before her death, the elderly woman said: “Russia will not only survive, it will dominate the world.”
