Duchna – The Haunted Road
There is a road on the edge of Kampinoska Forest, between the towns of Laski and Izabelin, known as the “Duchna” on which a strange things happen. When night comes, you can become a witness of an activity of strange balls of light, the ORBS visible by naked eye. Or maybe those are the spirits of the ancestors known as will-o’-the-wisp? It is a natural phenomenon for swamp areas, except the fact that there are no spamps anywhere near, and the terrain is very dry.
Another strange phenomenon is directly related to the sense of smell – it is possible to smell a nice, sweet aroma in two places of the road. Source of this phenomenon has not been determined yet. Sufficient to say that this phenomenon has been noticed during spring as well as winter. People say that the aroma comes in waves, and there are few seconds (50-70 seconds) between each wave.
In a few places we can notice growing birches, curved in unnatural way. Trees has been checked by dowsers, and as they admitted – such unnatural trees are prove for negative earth radiation. The very same radiation is causing electrical equipment malfunctions, just as it has been reported in famous Bermuda Triangle or during poltergeist activity. Fascinating!
Finally, witnesses say they have seen apparitions of horse raiders, soldiers from different periods of Europe history, and finally, a woman with huge, black dog. Spooky!
Language trivia – name “Duchna” comes from “Duch”, which in Polish means “Ghost”. The ending “-na” suggest that something is swarming with ghosts, that something is haunted.
