Independent travel is becoming increasingly popular. More and more people prefer this method for many reasons. It allows them to spend their vacation at a much lower price than what they would pay at a travel agency. At the same time, traveling alone allows one to get to know the true colors of the country and avoid the tourist attractions. Of course, such a vacation also has the flavor of adventure.
However, it is important to be aware of all possible risks. The recent tragic events in Sri Lanka show that one can never feel 100% safe anywhere, and at the same time, one must question whether there is anything one can do to ensure one\’s own safety.
If you are already traveling abroad, and not just in terms of unsafe places, I would recommend that you register with the Drozd online system, as it is a great way to ensure that you are safe.
Drozd is an acronym for citizen registration when traveling abroad, and the website is maintained by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
Travelers fill out a simple form consisting of information about themselves and their traveler, details of their stay (including an exact itinerary), and contact information in the Czech Republic.
Information is important in providing assistance. For example, in the case of natural disasters (hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes) or social crisis situations. For example, through e-mails and SMS, the system sends information to registered people about imminent dangers, which may no longer be the conflict itself.
On the Drozd website, one can also find a variety of important information on how to deal with different situations abroad and what to do in case of an emergency. The website also contains information about countries around the world. This website is a great help to all travelers.
