Lovari is a subgroup of the Romani people (Gypsies), who speak their own dialect, influenced by Hungarian. They live throughout Europe, in Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Poland, France, Germany, Italy, Greece and Ukraine.
Most Lovari are Catholics, although the individuals born or living in the Balkan region (Romania, Croatia, Serbia, and Albania) and Russia are known to be Orthodox Christians.
Their historical trade was horse-trading and fortune-telling.
Lovari's traditional costume is based on Hungarian national costume and is seldom used nowadays. They also have very strict contamination customs.
