This year's Final Rounds of the International Blockchain Olympiad (IBCOL Finals) is held in the vibrant city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

Travel: Amsterdam is located in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is part of the Schengen Area, which is a zone of 26 European countries that have abolished passport and other types of border control at their mutual borders. If you are a citizen of a country that is not a member of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA), you may need to obtain a visa before you can enter the Schengen Area, which includes Amsterdam. It's important to note that visa requirements can change, so it's always a good idea to check with the Netherlands embassy or consulate in your home country before you travel to Amsterdam. Additionally, even if you do not need a visa to enter the Netherlands, you may need to meet other requirements, such as having a valid passport or travel insurance.
