Travellingto.asia -Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, there has been increasing concern about travel in certain regions of Europe, especially for those planning to visit neighboring countries. So, is it safe to travel to Eastern Europe for a vacation at this time? In general, the answer is yes; most Eastern European countries are still safe, and your travel plans will most likely continue. However, it is understandable that some people are concerned about traveling to countries close to Russia or Ukraine.
However, the UK Foreign Office currently only warns against traveling to Ukraine, Belarus and Russia, which means that by traveling to neighboring countries that are receiving influx of refugees, such as Poland, Romania and Hungary, you can provide much-needed tourism revenue for the right business.
