travel alertThe U.S. State Department On Tuesday, has advised American to fear everything while planning to travel to Europe for their vacations.

The state department issued an alert telling Americans that the whole of Europe is a big terrorism risk for the next few months. It warned prospective tourists to be afraid of any “major event, tourist sites, restaurants, commercial centers and transportation” Europe-wide.

“The huge number of tourists visiting Europe in the summer months will present greater and softer targets for terrorists planning attacks in public locations,” the sweeping warning said. The travel alert continues through August 31.

The alert specified two events the department considers as exceptional risks: The European Soccer Championship, which France hosts from June 10 to July 10, and the Catholic Church’s World Youth Day, which will be held in Krakow, Poland between July 26 and July 31.

France refused to let the terror threats interfere with the soccer championship, which is expected to draw more than two million fans to stadiums. But France’s spy chief warned this month that France is still “clearly a target” for terrorists.

World Youth Day is expected to draw up to 2.5 million visitors to Krakow, a city with a population under 800,000. As a result the huge influx of tourists could stretch the local infrastructure, according to the State Department. The alert said Poland would impose border controls from July 4 to August 2, and will conduct “stricter security screening” for tourists.
