What is Kromvojoj and what does it mean?
Kromvojoj is a word that comes from Esperanto and describes possible and diverse paths. Our proposition, based on a mandatory single route, adopts its name because we focus on the essential: the variety of experiences that all participants will enjoy and how a single, established route, unfolds through multiple paths. We recommend you to read the Manifesto that we have published on our website.
