Serbian Communist-Era Village Another Spot for Salvation From Doomsday


Yahoo News reported yet another shelter for those who believe the Mayan prophecy that the world will end tomorrow. Mount Rtanj, 155 miles east of Belgrade, towards Bulgaria, is yet another "salvation region." Locals believe the region's "mystical powers" come from the time the mountain "swallowed a castle" belonging to a sorcerer, trapping him inside.

"We're booked out," said Darko Jovic, manager of the Balasevic hotel. "People were even calling from the United States and we had to say 'No'. I couldn't even get a room for my own mother and sister."
