Romania is an attraction for Western tourists. Especially during this time of the year, when Omicron wreaks havoc in their native countries, Western travelers choose Romania to spend their winter holidays.
Romania has few travel restrictions at the moment and the New Year’s Eve parties were an attraction for the locals and tourists. Among them, some cannot help themselves from overdrinking.
Just a few days ago, a drunk Irishman jumped the fence and broke into the Romanian Parliament building in Bucharest. Apparently, he told the police he thought the building was his hotel, but this is, of course, a blunt lie. Now, a drunk Italian adopted the same behavior, this time with the Museum of Art.
On the first day of the New Year, around 2 AM, a drunk Italian tried to jump over the fence of the Museum of Arts in Bucharest. He was immediately stopped by the Gendarmerie guards protecting the place.
The Italian, 27, was immobilized after being sprayed with tear gas. Police were called to intervene and they investigated the circumstances of the attempted break-in.
The Italian was fined 100 EUR for his intention of trespassing the property and he was freed.
