Historical records indicates that the Romungro or Hungarian Roma were the first Romani group appeared in the Carpathian Basin in the 14th and 15th centuries.
Traditionally they worked as craftsmen (mostly as blacksmith) and as highly valued and very talented musicians. They were also involved in trading and agricultural occupation.
Most of the Romungro population speak only Hungarian, but a minority still preserved the language of their ancestors.
Roma is a unique and the largest minority in Europe. Their origin is still a debate but most probably migrated from Punjab and Rajasthan (Northern India) in waves between the 9th and 14th century. Unfortunately, Roma still often face poverty, segregation and discrimination in Europe.
