Tzigania Tours Programs
Overnight Stay - Day Visits - Roma Restaurant
Re-inventing an old standardTzT programs returns to those days of old when visiting the Gypsy part of town was a common form of entertainment… Many of Europe’s great artists ventured into Tzigania (the Gypsy part of town) in search of new inspiration or simply let go of the daily pressures and have a good time. The “maestro” Franz Liszt was what you might call a regular around the campfire, Pushkin was rumored to have fallen in love while touring the Gypsy camp, even the mad monk Rasputin, an artist of another sort, loved his singing - dancing Gypsies almost as much as his beautiful countesses...

(what the guests are saying) (TzT newsletter)
The Family Gabor are the most hospital people you may likely ever meet. Their goals are simple: that their guests experience peace and pleasure in their home. It’s the Roma hospitable nature that carries over from their vulnerable nomadic days of wandering from place to place without a roof over their heads. They survived from hard work, kindness of strangers and the blessings of Mother Nature. These lonely times have nurtured their strong faith in the blessings of God - "bakht" (good luck) - the Roma religion.
The Gabor family belong to the caste of Roma traditionalist. They follow the Roma laws deriving from their Hindu-Indian origins. Part of the Roma belief system is a distinct separation from “gajo” (non-Roma) and for this reason opportunities to stay with “phral-Rrom” (true-Roma) is exceptionally rare. See first- hand what it means to be Roma and why these Roma are so unlike the lower-level Gypsies.
Female guests have the opportunities to dress as a Roma, and "be a Roma for a day" - or visit the local sites (in Roma dress) with Klara as guide. But most importantly - have a good time..
The musician’s tzigania is the Gypsy amusement park. Their motto is to “spend and have a good time”. It’s carnavale – everyday
Just as the Gypsy language and customs may vary from one locality into the next, so does the styles of their music. Nevertheless, the single link that ties these musicians together and perhaps the only true definition of "Gypsy music" is that the performers can neither read nor write a single note. Gypsy music is all about improvisation
The Gypsies of the village Bagaciu distinguish themselves from the “other Gypsies” by associating themselves with the village's former Saxon community. The Saxons possess the image of an organized, unified, self- reliant people that’s origins in Transylvania date back to the 12th century – and it is exactly these traits that the Bagaciu Gypsies claim thus separating them from the other more frivolous Gypsies
Apalina is a very special place that demonstrates the many differences between the tribes… The Gypsy section at Apalina consists of two conflicting groups living on two parallel streets. On the first street reside the former brick-makers. The hard-working former brick-makers have since adapted their skills into a more lucrative business of paving roads, walkways and patios. On the next street over live the horse-breeding Gypsies. The" Horse Gypsies" lack trade skills and are therefore more compelled to use their wits in order to survive
Ride in horse and wagon into the pristine wilderness surrounding the colony of Forest-Gypsies. Pick mushrooms with the experts. Then enjoy the Gypsy-fire and BBQ - gypsy style.
