Development of
Romani Culture

The ethnic culture of the Roma living in central, eastern and south-eastern Europe has formed and developed through a long and complex process of continuous active interaction with the culture of their surrounding population. The internal heterogeneity of the Romani communities and the fact that they live scattered among the surrounding population in different countries and in different cultural and historic regions, results in the presence of many diverse subvariants of the Romani culture.
