Nearly 4,000 tourists from Eastern Europe visited Israel during 1968 and about 40 percent of them were from countries which had broken off diplomatic relations with Israel, the Ministry of Tourism reported. The Ministry said that 113 Russian nationals had visited Israel as tourists as well as 480 Polish nationals, 380 Yugoslav nationals, 245 Hungarians, 600 Czechoslovaks and 2,157 Rumanians. Rumania was the one Eastern European country which did not sever relations with Israel after the Six-Day War.
