Discover the Stuff Fairy-Tales are Made of

When you study abroad in the Czech Republic, you’ll get the chance to pick up some Czech language skills, further your education in one of Europe’s finest universities, and live in one of the loveliest European countries. Experience the devastatingly charming city of Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in central Europe. Walk across the historic 14th century Charles Bridge and pose for a photo with one of its many Baroque statues. Check the sun and moon’s phases on Prague’s exquisite astronomical clock in the Old Town Square. Catch a show or just admire the architecture at the National Theater, home to opera, drama, and ballet performances. Rent a pedal boat in the Vltava River and enjoy a day on the water. Spend a spring or summer afternoon strolling through the picturesque Vrtba Garden, where perfectly trimmed green hedges, bright flowers, Baroque statues, and panoramic views of the city create a hidden oasis. When you’re ready to venture out of the capital, pay a visit to Olomouc or Brno, where the Czech Republic’s unique allure and culture come out in the architecture, castles, parks, and familiar red roofs.

Tap into the national enthusiasm for hockey at a live game. Spend a relaxing day at the hot spring spas in Karlovy Vary. Hike to the serene Resov Waterfalls in the Nízký Jeseník Mountains or through ecologically diverse Krkonoše National Park. Take a tour of the Konopištĕ Castle in Benešov to see the chambers of the ill-fated Archduke Franz Fredinand and stroll through the lovely grounds featuring a rose garden and resident peacocks. Experience Czech cinema at the country’s international film festival or rock out at the Rock for People music festival, if you’re in the country over the summer. While Czech food may be different from what you’re used to, don’t hesitate to try it out! You can’t go wrong with a hot bowl of Czech goulash or a plate of potato pancakes. If you’re more adventurous, try the classic Czech dish svíčková, featuring beef in a vegetable cream sauce with bread dumplings, whipped cream, and cranberry sauce on the side. Satisfy your sweet tooth with some fresh gingerbread from a local bakery; the Czech version of this common treat can’t be beat.

If you’re a lover of the arts or a general culture buff, the Czech Republic has plenty of creative delights for you to enjoy. View the genre-defining Art Nouveau paintings of Czech native Alphonse Mucha in his dedicated museum. Visit the famous bar, Café Louvre, where world-renown Czech writer Franz Kafka used to socialize. Spend a weekend evening touring Prague’s jazz clubs to hear live music or try the more unconventional method of riding the Jazz Boat down the Vltava. Get up close to the bizarre public sculptures of David Černý, as you roam Prague’s streets: Sigmund Freud hanging from a tall beam, Kafka’s stainless steel reflective head, and giant crawling babies. If you’re a bookworm, you’ll feel right at home in the Czech Republic, where independent bookstores continue to thrive and centuries-old libraries with dazzling interior design remain in operation.  

Czech Republic Points of Interest

Czech Republic Points of Interest

  • Petřín Hill

    This park full of trees is a great place for a calm and pleasant stroll any time of the year. The park is adjacent to Prague’s busy historical center and just a few minutes’ walk from the CEA Prague Center! On your way up the hill, taking many hidden paths, you’ll enjoy wonderful views of Prague’s landmarks, and at the hilltop, you can climb the Eiffel Tower reproduction!

    Hint: this is just one of many great parks within the city to enjoy. Others include Stromovka or Divoká Šárka.

  • Farmers Markets

    From March through December, several independent farmers markets set up shop in town squares throughout the city on the weekends. The countryside is not far from Prague, so local producers are within reach. The markets are not only a great place to buy fresh produce, but also to taste unique, local, organic meals and beverages and enjoy a mid-day outdoor concert. The market at Naplavka is famous for several reasons, including its calm riverside location on a large landing below street level.

  • John Lennon Wall

    During Communist times, this otherwise normal wall became a location for the unsanctioned expression of dissent. Standard graffiti is common in other parts of Prague, but the Lennon Wall has always been the place to express support for peace, democracy, and unity. The name comes from an image of John Lennon painted by an unknown person, along with some Beatles lyrics, shortly after John Lennon was killed in 1980. The tradition has continued since then, and socially aware messages persistently replace each other on this graffiti-allowed wall

  • Cultural Festivals

    No matter the time of year, there are almost always festivals in Prague celebrating music, film, visual art, dance, theater, or any other cultural art form. Signal Fest installs original light exhibitions in public places throughout the city over a few days each October. Febio Fest is an international film festival taking place in March that has been going on almost as long as the country has been free from Communism. Those are just two examples of your many festival options. In addition to festivals, almost every day of the week you can find some kind of performance (classical music, ballet, etc.) in a beautiful historic theater.
