Stalin Refused Them to Roam

Author: Yana Israelyan


There are about 700 Roma people in Tbilisi. Mostly, they live compactly in the settlements in Tbilisi: Gachiani, Kobuleti, Kutaisi. The ancestors of the Georgian Roma people were roaming since Stalin refused to allow these Roma people to roam in 1956. The majority of Roma people are orthodox, but there are catholics and muslims as well. To celebrate a holiday is a holy thing. At that time, all Roma people followed these holidays. They can work all year, earn money, and spend them just in one day.
