Eastern European Culture and Mythology - ROBERT SEPEHR

Samodivas are woodland fairies found in South and West Slavic folklore and mythology, commonly depicted as ethereal maidens with long hair, and in some cases, wings. In Macedonian folklore, they were said to inhabit oak or willow trees, and in Romanian mythology they are known as Iele, with great seductive power over men, and magic skills and attributes similar to nymphs found in Greek mythology, sometimes reported to have been seen bathing in the springs or at crossroads.

Another important aspect of the Balkan myths surrounding Samodivas is their dance, with similarities to ancient Thracian and Greek legends, which included songs and dances performed by fire-priestesses.
