About the tour

We will discover the interesting world of Roma people, one of the largest minorities in Romania. Few hundred Roma families have settled for some decades in this unique village of Transylvania. You will find out about the history of Roma people and some of their traditions, but also how nowadays and future look like for the people in this village. A coppersmith who is proud to continue the craft of his ancestors will welcome us into his house and workshop. And he is actually not just a coppersmith from Transylvania, he is the one who worked with famous Vienna-based designers, who took his work to exhibitions in Vienna, Paris and New York.
