Baba Vanga’s track record: Have her predictions ever come true?

Gloomily, Bulgaria’s most famous mystic, Baba Vanga, has predicted a new pandemic and an alien invasion await us in 2022.

But how likely are the clairvoyant’s predictions to come true and should we really care what she thinks?

The blind mystic died 25 years ago but has left predictions for every year up to 5079.

But Baba Vanga has often gotten her prophecies wrong – although several big ones have eerily come true.

So what is her track record? Here Metro.co.uk looks at what she’s got right and wrong over the years.

Who was Baba Vanga?

The clairvoyant was born Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova and grew up in the Bulgarian village of Strumica while it was still under the control of the Ottoman Empire.

Everything in her life seemed normal for the time until a massive storm hit and flung her into the air when she was 12-years-old.

She got lost in all the chaos and had mysteriously lost her ability to see by the time her parents found her a few days later.

Baba Vanga said she had her first future-predicting vision in the days she was missing and later claimed her sight was replaced with a clairvoyant ability to foresee the future.

The mystic died in 1996, at the age of 85, but not before she supposedly made predictions up until the year 5079, when she believed the world would end.

Each year’s prophecies are revealed before the start of January but there are always doubts over which ones she actually made herself, as they were never actually written down.

What has Baba Vanga predicted for 2022?

Next year holds more sorrow and disasters for the world, My Astrofame claims Baba Vanga said.

She apparently believed another pandemic would emerge – although this time it would be from a frozen virus in Siberia and defrosted by climate change.

Countries will supposedly be left without drinking water, famine will hit India and aliens will send an asteroid called ‘Oumuamua’ to look for life on Earth and ‘take prisoners’.

Perhaps most believable is her forecast that the world will spend more time than ever looking at screens.

Those addicted to technology will be ‘pushed in a downwards spiral and will confuse fantasy with reality’, she apparently said.

Indeed, none of these predictions are fun to read about after the last two years which have been incredibly difficult for the entire planet.

What are Baba Vanga’s most famous predictions?

Many of Baba Vanga’s followers believe she foresaw 9/11, Brexit, the election of Barack Obama, the 2004 tsunami and several other major events.

In 1989, the mystic said: ‘American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds… and innocent blood will be gushing’.

This is what some see as a prediction of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York in 2001, when two planes were forced to hit the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

Baba Vanga claimed she knew that Europe would ‘cease to exist’ by 2017.

Although Europe is obviously very much still standing, some think the clairvoyant was talking about Brexit – which the UK had voted on in 2016.

Baba Vanga was eerily precise in saying the 44th US president would be black (Barack Obama) but she also said he would be the country’s last president.

In 1980, Baba said the Russian city of Kursk would be ‘covered with water and the whole world will weep over it’ in August 1999.

Although the city is still around, there was a horrific disaster in August 2000 – when a Kursk submarine sank and 118 military personnel died.

What did Baba Vanga predict for 2021?

The clairvoyant seemed to be spot on with her summary of this most recent year. She apparently said: ‘Difficult times will come. People will be divided by their faith. We are witnessing devastating events that will change the fate and destiny of humanity.’

More abstractly, she said a ‘strong dragon will seize humanity. The three giants will unite. Some people will have red money. I see the numbers 100, five, and many zeros’. 

Some interpreters thought the dragon was a nod to China’s rising power in the world. 

She also predicted doctors would find a cure to cancer and the production of petrol would stop because trains ‘would fly using sunlight’. This did not come true.

What did Baba Vanga predict in 2020?

Baba Vanga prophesied that Donald Trump would suffer from a ‘mysterious disease’.

Many thought this came true when the former US president got coronavirus, but it did not go as Baba Vanga thought.

The disease was supposed to leave Mr Trump deaf and cause him brain trauma but that obviously did not happen.

What did Baba Vanga predict in 2019?

The ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’ said Trump would get sick this year too. She also said someone from within the Kremlin would try to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

Of course, Putin was not killed and the world is not aware of any inside assassination plot.

Baba Vanga apparently went on to foresee Europe’s economic collapse. The continent has taken a huge hit because of coronavirus but it still contains most of the world’s richest countries.
