Fact of the Day: Balkan Vampires

While vampires and vampire-like creatures stories  have existed in many cultures all over the world, the term vampire didn't become popular to the English-speaking world until the 18th century. Mainly because a lot of vampire lore and superstitions from Eastern Europe and the Balkans started to spread heavily into Western Europe at that time.
