Hello everyone,
As we all know, in recent years, the epidemic of covid-19 has progressed very complicatedly, directly affecting the economy of the European countries. The epidemic has not yet strongly exploded and has been basically partially controlled. So do not know European countries have reopened tourism services to serve tourists yet? Hope everyone let me know.
Thanks everyone.

>The epidemic has not yet strongly exploded

Are you serious? The pandemic may not have 'expoloded' where you live (unlikely imo) but it has most certainly done so in many, many countries....that's why it's called a pandemic.....and it has had a direct impact on the economies of all the countries it has affected.

> do not know European countries have reopened tourism services to serve tourists yet

The continent of Europe has 50+ countries.

The EU (too often wrongly called 'Europe') has 27 countries.

Each country has its own laws, rules and regulations about tourist entry during this pandemic. Some are not allowing any tourists at all, some only allow tourists from certain countries, some require quarantine or self-isolation on arrival......

Each country has its own rules about whether and how long e.g. hotels, shops, bars, restaurants, clubs etc can open.

Each country has its own rules/laws about e.g. whether visitors must self-isolate, where and when masks must be worn etc etc etc.

Each country has its own rules about whether its own citizens can take a holiday in their own country or elsewhere.

Some European countries e.g. Spain, Malta, Greece are hoping to open for more tourists in the coming summer but there is no certainty.

If you want to visit an EU/European country you should look at your own government's advice about that country. It should tell you whether visitors are allowed and what laws and rules are in place at this time.

If your own country doesn't have such a government advisory look at this official site:

Maybe if you filled out your profile information, we could help you better?
Where in the world are you coming in from?
Where in Europe do you want to go?

If you're from India, this week India was moved to the red list for UK and from Friday (today) the border will be closed to India for the time being/while India are dealing with record number or cases.

Where are you from in the world?
It's really all about what country you're coming from and what country you're going to.

It's 2021, there is a pandemic, if you're lucky enough to be able to travel further than local, then why not just put all this nonsense of 'I want to go to a country that's fighting Covid worse than mine' away this year and use it as an opportunity to see your own country because some countries may be open enough to force you to quarantine for 2 weeks upon arrival, this year (it's a real thing).

Staycation, other countries might not even be open, but if yours is, see it; nothing wrong with seeing your own country as well as seeing the world.

This Pandemic isn't going to last forever and most countries aren't going anywhere, but different countries are all locked down at the moment dealing with an internal crises across the board.

I can't even tell you if my country'd (UK) be open to you without knowing from which country you wish to travel to UK from I'm afraid; and we're leading Europe in vaccinations and the fight against Covid.

Last I heard, other countries in Europe like France and whatnot were going into lockdown and curfew because of another wave of Covid; UK in contrast is opening back up - but countries across the board are looking at other countries and Covid and writing and rewriting the rules for travel from them into that country be it border closed or forced quarantine.
