Romani culture

3.11
Prekmurje Roma, Slovenia

The Prekmurje Roma live in the north-east of Slovenia. Traditional occupations and the institution of Romani chiefs have almost completely disappeared with the exception of the Romani settlement of Kamenci which has even transformed into a cultural tou­rist site, offering an insight into the Romani cultural heritage. The development and preservation of their culture depends on their socio-economic status – the higher it is, the lower the level of the importance of preserving cultural heritage.­
