The survival of the tourism sector in times of the Covid-19 epidemic represents the framework of our problem. We wanted to investigate how the selected countries have taken steps to prevent an economic catastrophe, from which we have still not fully recovered. The reason for this research is that tourism was one of the most affected industries during the epidemic, which led me to the desire to investigate the situation. The aim of the assignment was achieved by collecting data from the official websites of the countries concerned, mainly by using the method of data analysis and the comparative method, which was used to compare the countries with each other and to better understand the measures, which were taken by the countries by means of a SWOT and PESTEL analysis of the countries. The analysis found that countries were experiencing a tourism crisis in 2020, and by 2021 they were already tracking pre- epidemic figures. Croatia has taken the least preventive measures, while Austria and Italy have taken the most. Slovenia has also done very well to recover this sector. As the thesis is mainly of a comparative social science nature, the contribution made is also seen as practical for the wider economy to use in dealing with health-concerning disasters such as the Covid-19 epidemic. Should a similar situation occur in the future, the thesis could provide information on how the situation has been dealt with in the past.
