Participating in national celebrations is the best way to get acquainted with national traditions and customs of Bucharest. Because of a wide choice of interesting celebrations Bucharest is often called the city of festivals. Explaining such a wide number of commemorative dates is quite simple - the city is home to several ethnic groups who have certainly influenced on the culture of the city. Ethnic holidays remain one of the clearest manifestations of national diversity of the city. The holiday called Roma Day is a certain proof of this. The holiday is celebrated annually on April 8.
Despite the fact that many people do not connect the image of the Roma people with high intelligence and morality, the Romanian gypsies are very different from the Roma living in other European countries. They devote a lot more time to studying, but art is still the main passion of gypsies. During the day of the holiday visitors can always listen to performance of the internationally famous Gipsy Orchestra «Fanfare Ciocarlia». You will be also amazed by wonderful dancing performances.
