Many of the most visited tourist destinations in the world reside in the historic continent that is Europe. With centuries worth of history to learn about, traveling to beautiful countries like Greece, Italy, Germany, and Sweden to name a few is no question. However, in light of the COVID-19 becoming a global pandemic in the West as well as the East, it’s become a huge question mark where people can still travel to.

The increasingly significant impact of the coronavirus outbreak has severely impacted many of the most frequented tourist destinations in Europe. In fact, according to an article by Pharmaceutical-Technology, six out of the top ten most infected countries are located in the European continent. These include the homelands of scenic attractions like The Royal Palace of Madrid in Spain, the Pantheon in Italy, and the Eiffel Tower in France to name a few.

It’s best to keep in mind that many of the European destinations may temporarily be inaccessible due to the severity of COVID-19 in every country, however, some other lesser-known attractions still remain open to the public. Meanwhile, for those looking to make travel plans to Germany, Spain, France, and Italy among other popular European attractions, take note of the current attractions that you and your travel buddies may want to stay away from down below.
