Gypsies of Romania 🇷🇴

Cernavoda, Romania 🇷🇴

This spring I had the opportunity to work in Romania.

Despite the Covid and its restrictions, I still had some opportunities to explore the surroundings of Cernavoda, a small industrial town of 20,000 inhabitants located on the banks of the Danube, which is the second longest river in Europe. 

Here is a family of Gypsies, who kindly accepted to pose in front of their home. Eight families live in this residence which is flooded every year because of the overflow of the Danube. 

Gypsies, also known as Roms, Romi, Manouches or Tziganes represents about 3.3% of the Romanian population and are characterized by an itinerant lifestyle, living widely dispersed mainly throughout Europe and South .
