The Montenegrin resort town of Kotor was included in the ranking of the 20 safest cities in the world for travel and post-coronavirus tourism this summer
, according to the international organization European Best Destinations (EBD). This rating includes those places that were least affected by the coronavirus infection COVID-19.
The first place in the list of TOP-20 of the safest cities in the world for travel in 2020 was taken by the city of Tbilisi (Georgia), the second place was taken by the island of Corfu (Greece), the third place was taken by the city of Cavtat (Croatia). The remaining places were distributed as follows: Azores (Portugal), Preveza (Greece), Alentejo (Portugal), Batumi (Georgia), Zagreb (Croatia), Algarve (Portugal), Sibiu (Romania), Kotor (Montenegro), Rijeka (Croatia) ), Warsaw (Poland), Vienna (Austria), Bohinj (Slovenia), Malta, Gdansk (Poland), Vilnius (Lithuania), Riga (Latvia) and Wild Taiga (Finland).
Due to the fact that many countries in Europe mitigate the restrictions associated with coronavirus, open borders and create new ways to ensure the safe movement of residents and tourists within the country, summer vacations in European countries are becoming an increasingly real opportunity for travelers.
Along with creative concepts such as “air bridges”, “tourist bubbles” and “rest corridors” created between countries that have officially emerged from the coronavirus crisis (and do not require quarantine for visitors), governments, international agencies and specialized tourism organizations they are rapidly introducing new initiatives into their work that will allow them to resume long-distance, and in a few weeks international, trips and flights ahead of the summer season.
Summer trips to Europe may resume next month through safe “air bridges,” The Sun reports.
“Many European countries are opening their borders, and are currently launching flights and opening hotels,” European Best Destinations reports. In addition, before going to any city in any country that is on this list of the 20 safest cities in the world, EBD recommends that every traveler:
- remain vigilant, do not forget about gestures, social distance, about wearing protective masks, when possible and necessary;
- Avoid traveling if you are in poor health;
- people over 70 years old who are overweight or have lung problems should be especially vigilant;
- Travelers are obliged to protect their most unprotected relatives (children, the elderly and the sick), as well as residents of the host countries.
