Is witchcraft illegal in PL? And did she float?
Illegal enough to arrest someone for it apparently. It was in a village down in Podhale. The prosecutors didn't pursue the case because of the obvious lack of proof. That and ridicule from the media.
Poland was quite a hotbed of witchcraft (and witch hunts). Doruchów was of course the most famous case but there were hundreds of others.
An update on the Polish 'vampires':
Legends of vampires roaming rural areas of Eastern Europe may have actually been the result of untimely deaths of cholera victims, according to scientists.
Suspected vampires were buried in bizarre rituals during the 17th and 18th centuries to ward off evil and prevent them from rising again from the grave.
But rather than being blood-sucking monsters, tests have revealed they were in fact early victims of cholera and were viewed suspiciously because they died so suddenly.
Archaeologists discovered skeletons in a Polish cemetery that had rocks and sickles placed across their necks in these strange funerals, known as apotropaic burials.
