Visiting Gypsies of Romania is a  journey back in time to “an environment not far removed 
from that which existed from their arrival into Europe."

Sir Angus Fraser, History of the Gypsies  

  The Hindu-Indian caste system carried over space and time to today where
it comes alive in the hierarchal tribal system: 

Aristocratic Roma (Gabor) leading the Roma nation -
followed by the wild and unpredictable Tent Gypsies 
- free-spirited House Gypsies (settled Gyspies)–
-  the abhorred rag-pickers (tzigan) -
- and finally the Untouchables 
the lowly Forest-Gypsies caught between the beasts of the Forest and contemptuous villagers




"There is more to the Gypsy character than, if I may borrow an Italian headline, a Gypsy face and a jar"

TZIGANIA  -   Bringing New Trades to Fiscally Dried-up Gypsy Communities

Tzigania - introducing new incomes 
into the socially and economically deprived Roma communities
 by offering passage into what many still consider the “forbidden” zone. 

Do like Pushkin, Franz Liszt, Tolstoy – come “inside”, reverse the status-quo perspective and
see for yourself the Gypsy world view from their side of the tracks and through their bright eyes.

"The More - The Merrier" is our motto. 

Reaching across social and class lines with programs fitting all ages, tastes, and budgets

Stay overnight and hang-out with the Gypsies….  Or just make a day of it

--- Join us in a special event or party  

 ….Or come for the meal in the Roma kitchen.

Learn!

We’re relaxed around here – we’re gypsy flexible

 the gypsy homeland- Tzigania - is a sacred place,  a mystical place where carpe diem reigns. 
Experience why impoverished, fun-loving Gypsy community reigns as the happiest place on earth


" I'm ready - give me champagne - let's go to the Gypsies! "
Doestoevsky's Natasha Fillipovna in The Idiot
