Belarus and Czechia Host the Most Stressful Train Stations in the World


Uručča in Minsk, Belarus, and Praha-Čakovice in Prague, Czechia, have been identified as the world’s most stressful train stations by a survey carried out by Fleet Logging.

According to the same source, each of these stations has a score of 100 per cent on stressful experiences.

“There’s nowhere to sit, and your bag will probably get searched if you go there at night: Uručča in Minsk, Belarus, is the world’s (and Europe’s) most stressful station,” the survey reads.

Further findings from the survey show that Elgin Station holds the highest rate of reviews regarding stressful experiences in the United States. The same noted that this station is not known for its cleanliness either.

Meanwhile, among the most stressful stations in South America is that of Brazil, Jacaré in the João Pessoa urban train system with a rate of 50 per cent.

As the survey explains, the most stressful train stations within the Middle East and Central Asia are in Turkiye and Iran. Turkiye’s Emiralem Station in İzmir has a stress rate of 36.4 per cent.

Based on this survey, Harbin Railway Station in China stands out in the category of the most stressful train stations in the rest of Asia and Oceania. This station welcomes 25.46 million passengers annually. The survey also estimated that over 76.9 per cent of these passengers experience a stressful experience at the station.

The sixth most stress-inducing station globally and securing the top spot in Africa is Egypt’s Jeddah station, which has a stress rating of 85.2 per cent.

According to the study’s rankings, Bellville in Cape Town, South Africa, and Missafou in the Republic of Congo share a tie for second place, with a stress rating of 58.3 per cent. On the other hand, Palapye Station in Botswana secures sixth place for being among the least stressed, with a remarkably low-stress rating of 4.6 per cent.

While the rest of the Piccadilly Line in London maintains a relatively calm ambience, this contrast brings down the line’s average tension rating to 28.6 per cent. As a result, the distinction of being the most stress-inducing line in London is claimed by the Victoria Line. This is attributed to the presence of high-stress stations such as Blackhorse Road (52.6 per cent), Vauxhall (49 per cent), and Finsbury Park (45 per cent), which collectively contribute to the elevated stress levels experienced by passengers on this line.
