You Tube Channel

As mentioned in a previous post; Starting in June, I will be showcasing some Urban Myths and Legends on YouTube, featuring some of the best Urban Legends of Russia and New Zealand.

My first project will be to revisit the town of Chapayevsk and do a short film in the Municipal Cemetary, as I explain the Legend of Elena, who reportedly roams the Cemetary.

shirshtolni1 The second Webisode will take place in Zhiguli mountains near Shiryaevo which is in the Samara region.

Hardened Zoya

The Legend of Zoya is well known in the Samara region, so I will also be featuring this Urban Legend.

Going by Legends, on January 14, 1956, a young factory worker Zohi arranged a party. All who were invited had a partner to dance with but Zoya did not. Her fiance Nicholas did not come. Then she took out the icon of St Nicholas, and cried out: “As long as my Nicolas did not come I will dance with this Nicholas!” It is reported that she danced with the icon in her hands. Friends tried to stop Zoyu, but she said: “If there is a God, let him punish me.”

Suddenly they heard a thunder and lightning in the room. The other youth fled in fear. And when her friends returned, they saw Zoya standing in the middle of the room, paralyzed – almost stone-like, with the icon still in her hands.

For 128 days Zoya stood in the middle of the room. Crowds of people came from far and wide to witness the miracle.After 128 days, it is said that she woke up, repented and quietly died.

  6. My grand-father told me that he was near the house where Zoya was standing. There was a crowd of people who wanted to know the truth. They’ve chosen some “representatives” that entered in the house. Then they announced to the crowd tha there was nothing interesting. My grand-father told that they were asked to tell this in order to prevent the panic.
