Roma (also referred to as Romakloster) is a locality (Swedish tätort) situated in Gotland Municipality, Gotland County, Sweden with 913 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

In 1995 the locality known as Roma was divided by Statistics Sweden into a part with the tentative name of "Roma kyrkby" or "Lövsta" (pop. 277) and the remaining part that retained the name "Roma" (pop. 913), but is using to as "Romakloster" as postal address.[2] Some confusion is caused by the fact that Lövsta/Roma kyrkby has been referred to as "Roma" in the statistical figures since 2000.[3]
