Prophetess Baba Vanga – who died in 1996 aged 85 – was known as the ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’.
The Bulgarian is revered in Russia for her 85% success rate when it comes to telling the future – with millions convinced that she possessed paranormal abilities.
In fact Baba predicted that Europe as we know it will “cease to exist” by the end of 2016.
Moreover she claimed the continent will be left “almost empty” – and be turned into a “wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life”.
Baba’s believers also fear her prediction of a “great Muslim war” and an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists – stemming from the Arab Spring in 2010 – and conflict in Syria.
She claimed that “Muslims would use chemical warfare against Europeans”.
Critics however claim that people will twist her prophecies to make them seem true.
Baba’s prediction over 9/11 is said to be from a statement she made in 1989.
She predicted: “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.”
Baba also said that Europe will be transformed into an Islamic caliphate by 2043, Communism will return by 2076 and there will be war on Mars in 3005.
But she got her prediction for the 1994 World Cup final completely wrong – saying it would be played between “two teams beginning with B”, when in fact Brazil beat Italy 3-2 on penalties.
