Worldwide, the tourism and travel sector (business, visits) is one of the largest industries, the evolution being an increasing one, estimating, over 10 years ago, that approx. 3% of the active population in the world works in this field. Europe is ranked number one in the world as a tourist destination. The European countries most requested by foreign tourists are, in a random enumeration, Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Holland, Poland. The importance of the safety and health of tourists is essential, the countries adopting regulations that encourage the free movement of people for recreational purposes, in principle they have similarities between them. Among these regulations are, of course, those in criminal matters. As a result of the recognition of the right to free movement and of the economic development and the standard of living, the Romanian citizens became more and more active as tourists, choosing to travel for various purposes in almost all the states of the world. In this context, they must adapt their behavior to the laws of those states in which they move, but at the same time they must know the possible dangers that could affect their life, liberty, health or property, as well as the procedures to turn to if necessary. Romanian tourists, abroad, can become both victims of criminal acts and perpetrators of others, sometimes unintentionally or out of ignorance of certain specific local regulations. This is the reason why we considered useful the short presentation and analysis of the most common situations of a criminal nature in which the Romanian tourist could be found abroad.
