From the beliefs of the Finno-Ugric regions of Eastern Europe, the Nakki were water spirits. They would emerge from the water twice a day, once at dawn and once at dusk.

Did you find Naaki interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a frightening and terrifying image of the Haunting Naaki and send it to this website. Interested in more Russian legend? A great cartoon called Dobrynya Nikitich and Zemy Gorynych (2006) is a Russian children's animation with Dragons and other Russian mythical beings. But for those who love Vampires, lets not forget that Eastern Europe is their birth place. No film quite gives the Vampire spooks like Nosferatu (1922). However if you like it modern, Day Watch and Night Watch are interesting Vampire alternatives. Also the fantasy tabletop game Warhammer features an army called Vampire Counts which has been greatly inspired by Eastern European beliefs and culture.
