The existence in Husi of more than one nationality is tied to the Lords of Moldavia and the Bishopric of Husi, which often brought foreigners as workers, especially for the court and for the vineyard. But there is little information about the numbers and the ethnical component of the inhabitants of Husi. Of course the Romanians represent the majority of the population, but we can talk about a ethnical convergence

...living together

The Hungarians in Husi stabilized on the estate Cornii, where Stefan The Great colonized them here as workforce. Later Cornii became a village and is now a big neighborhood of the city.
The Bulgarians
coming from south of the Danube because of the Turks, formed a numerous colony on the lands of the Bishopric of Husi, between Draslavat and Turbata, and then they climbed up the Dric. They stretched like a "belt" around the city, forming a new Bulgarian neighborhood.
The gypsies came here as slaves of the Bishopric, working as craftsmen, later making the gipsy neighborhood behind it.
Jews were one of the biggest communities that lived in Husi.
