Krizem Krazem is the biggest railway travel event in the Czech Republic, around 500 – 700 people in 100 teams take part every year. The event is a 24-hour long competition, where teams receive points for traveled distance by train, visited bonus places and completed tasks. It is primarily intended for scouts, students, families and railway fans. The event is organized by a scout group and is completely non-profit.

The 14th edition of Krizem Krazem took place on Saturday, September 18, 2021. As we are celebrating the European Year of Rail this year, we included this theme into the competition as well – we prepared special thematic challenges for the competitors as well as promoted the European Year of Rail on social media.

Experiences…

The best experience was having fun in the night train – about 100 people in one railroad car – meeting other people, talking, playing board games, performing competitive tasks together, playing guitar and singing – Anna

The biggest experience was the night quick ascent to the hill and the beautiful view of the surrounding night landscape… – Matej (Matthias) 

I enjoyed solving puzzles and ciphers and then going to a secret place or a mountain, tasks were also fun. Sometimes it was a challenge – for example, swimming in cold water in a pond – Martina

It was very difficult to plan the winning route – to combine the train journey, bonus places, visit of cultural attractions and competition tasks – fortunately all train connections in the stations were provided despite the delays. Our journey started a few minutes after midnight by boarding the EuroNight train, during the whole day we took 18 trains, traveled 1243 km and in total we gained over 2100 points Jaroslav
