Welcome to the Czech Republic – a country of many stories!
There are not many places in the world where will you find so much beauty in such a small area. History has left its mark on this country in the very heart of Europe in its many wonderful medieval towns, proud castles, elegant chateaux and charming folk buildings. All of this is embraced by the diverse landscape of harmonious fields and meadows in bloom, thousands of fishponds, deep forests and borderland mountains. Set out to get to know some of the fascinating stories of a country which is proud of its historical heritage. All you have to do is come and enjoy it with all of your senses.
The historical lands of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia have been a crossroads of culture between the East and the West for more than a thousand years now. Their history, linked with the history of Europe, tells stories of an era of economic and cultural boom and decline, bitter wars, revolution but also national awakening. All of this was projected onto the character of the country and left appreciable traces there. Nowadays, the Czech Republic is a developed country which provides its visitors with everything they need to spend an unforgettable holiday in a country where there is constantly something new to discover.
There are many advantages to living in the beautiful city of Prague. It is cheaper than most other European countries, centrally located within Europe, and has a great public transportation system which is easy to use. Here are a few tips about living in Prague:
There are many large grocery stores in Prague, including Tesco, Billa, and Albert. Most grocery items that you can buy in your home country can also be found here. When you go grocery shopping, you should bring your own bag, or buy them at checkout for a few cents each, depending on the size and quality.
Prague also boasts a few large marketplaces, such as Holesovicka Trznice, where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, and even second-hand goods and housewares. Farmer's markets are also located around the city during all but the coldest months, including one just a few minutes' walk from our school

Prague is renowned for its nightlife, and every person can find a place to suit his or her tastes. Beer gardens are popular during the summer months, providing beautiful views of the city, live music, and a chance to relax outdoors. If you prefer a more adventurous night, there are many discos to choose from, such as Nebe, Lucerna, Roxy, Mecca, and Duplex. If a night of dancing isn’t what you are after, then a more casual hospoda (a.k.a. pub) is in order. Czech people love going to pubs and discussing any topic over a beer. Beer in Prague costs anywhere from 20-40 CZK (1-2USD) and is usually cheaper than water!
Safety in Prague:
Prague is one of the safest cities in the European Union. The majority of the crime deals with petty theft, mainly on the metro or trams. All the same, it is always important to know your surroundings, watch your belongings, and to travel in pairs at night. We recommend purchasing a cell phone once you get to Prague in case any problems should occur. The Program Coordinator can be reached 24 hours per day if any questions or concerns should arise.
