News – Louvre, Colosseum, Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Colosseum…, it would be nice to visit all the museums and monuments now that a very small number of people are circulating in Europe due to the pandemic.

However, those brave and impatient who hurried through the countries where the citizens of Serbia are allowed to enter, with certain measures, found a large number of cities incredibly deserted, and museums still closed. Without tourists, with limited working hours for caterers and with obligatory measures of social distancing and wearing masks – is that the future of all metropolises?
