Don't Go Alone

The Roma are a closed community. DO NOT go to Hetea without an invitation and escort from a local host. Respect the local resident's privacy by not arriving  without an escort. We made our arrangements to visit through the Tzigania Project.

The Tzigania Project  - a Community Development Program bringing new incomes into marginalized Roma/Gypsy communities of Romania through participation and trade. 


Valcele Village

We stayed in the "Gypsy Hostel" in the nearby village of Valcele. The area is exceptionally beautiful showcasing the authentic traditional Romania countryside.
