If we were to describe Transylvania in one word, we would choose diverse. This historical land was home to numerous isolated villages, and we will find their traces of Romanian, Hungarian, Gypsy, and German communities, all living in harmony for hundreds of years. Gypsies first settled in Romania more than 800 years ago, after being forced away from their lands by the Mongol invasion. Today, we will visit an isolated community of Gypsies who earn their living through various crafts such as coppersmithing.

Because they are a slightly isolated community, the access is permitted only to those accompanied by someone they trust.
