The Covid-19 pandemic is over and all travel restrictions have been lifted - so tourism in Romania is once again normal, hurray! Read our Covid-19 travel restrictions blog for up to date info! For everyone's safety, our guides will respect prevention measures.
The war in Ukraine hasn't affected tourism in Romania (who is a NATO member) in any way. The initial shock passed and it's clear the Russian army isn't as threatening or capable anymore :) So you don't have to worry or change your holiday plans!
