Portugal has been placed on the ‘Peace Podium’ after once again climbing up the latest Global Peace Index. This comes after Portugal had risen to fifth in 2016, when it was also the country with the biggest improvement in Europe. The rankings, sent to The Portugal News on Thursday afternoon, followed hot on the heels of a survey by tourism industry leaders and experts who predicted yet another bumper year, and are expecting revenue and occupation rates to set new records.
The Global Terrorism Index 2017 found that in Europe, two countries that had no impact of terrorism included Portugal and Slovenia.
Not only that, but they are also surrounded by other countries with a low risk of terrorism, putting them in a safer position.
When travelling to Europe, it can be even cheaper when choosing an alternative city to the capital.
