Every semester CEA plans excursions, either to other cities within your program country, or to cities outside of your program country. Through the Prague, Czech Republic program, one of the planned excursions is to Kraków, Poland, which is located just north of the Czech Republic. The CEA students and some staff hopped on a bus and drove up to Kraków for an extended weekend trip (Thursday to Sunday). Below are a few examples of some of the things that we saw and did while on our CEA excursion!
