Unjustified restrictions imposed by the influence of COVID-19 in most parts of the world have seriously jeopardized all tourism and related industries. The Baltic States are no exception: the seriousness of the situation in local hotels, restaurants, and travel companies is not yet properly understood by the authorities or ordinary citizens, who have not been directly affected by these restrictions in their own business or by losing their job.

Therefore, the organizers of the project “Quarantine: a game of survival”, decided to conduct a social experiment – an Internet show, and look at the problem from the other side – with the eyes of an ordinary tourist. How attractive is “inbound” tourism in the current environment? What problems do travelers face today?

To find out they accommodated 20 volunteers in 10 apartment rooms in one of the most comfortable apartment hotels in the Old Town of Riga for 10 days, in strict compliance with the standards defined by the Latvian government’s self-isolation rules. Participants’ task: various creative and psychological tasks will have to be performed during the whole experiment, observing all restrictive requirements. One pair was eliminated from the game every day. The winner received the main prize: a month of free accommodation at the hotel and gifts from partners – also from B’MORE!

We were also supporting all the volunteers with water and vitamins to be their best versions and perform better.
