Gabor Gypsies – Interested about Gypsy, Romani, Roma or Gabor culture and traditions? Perfect, than come and meet the Gabor Gypsies of Transylvania in their very own community. This custom arranged tour will be the most authenthic inter cultural experience you can have in Romania and will also take you behind the invisible wall of self segregation inside a one of the most interesting yet authentic ethnic group of Europe, the gypsies.
We will visit a Gabor Gipsy family in their home in a nearby village of Sighisoara were we can have just a coffee as a pretext for learning about the unwritten laws of arranged marriages tradition, rituals, women`s role in the family life, Romani language, dress codes of the Gabor gypsies and many more.
If you are in for a more profound experience, a traditional gypsy lunch can be arranged with this family and even a live gypsy music and dance session can be arranged too.
The Gabor Gypsies of Transylvania are considered the aristrocrat caste of the Romanian gypsies due to their commitment in preserving sacred traditions and marrying exclusively within their own ethnic group as a protection measure against integration in the more and more uniform society of the XXI century.
PS: you will have the chance to ask ANY question.
PPS: This tour can be combined with visiting of Malancrav Fortified Church or Orthodox Monastery in Sighisoara.
