Český Krumlov

Karlovy Vary

Terezín

Kutná Hora

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You’ll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we’ve offered in the past.

*In an effort to offer lower-cost internship options and support you in maximizing your professional development in a condensed timeframe, summer internship programs do not include excursions.

Český Krumlov

Join us on an overnight trip to Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the banks of the Vltava River. One of the most popular destinations in the Czech Republic, Český Krumlov is an outstanding example of a Central European medieval town with an architectural heritage more than 500 years old. It’s easy to see the influence of several different cultures—Czech, Austrian, Bavarian, and Northern Italian—on this charming town near the Austrian border. Encircled by a bend in the river, the town features a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque elements. During this two-day, one-night trip, we also hike through a nearby forest to a ruined castle, forming a contrast with the perfectly maintained, picturesque center of Český Krumlov, and provide you with free time to explore on your own.

Karlovy Vary

On this day trip, you’ll explore Karlovy Vary, the Czech Republic’s largest, most famous spa city. For centuries, Europeans have gone to spas for rehabilitation, usually staying for a month or two in a naturally beautiful location. Doctors today still prescribe spa stays as treatment. Situated in western Bohemia west of Prague, Karlovy Vary offers more than 300 hot springs and the warm-water Teplá river. Legend says that the town’s thermal springs were accidentally discovered in 1370 by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. In the 16th century, the spa enjoyed the favor of many noble families and wealthy townsmen; by the 19th century, it was a popular destination for celebrities like Beethoven and Goethe. Today, the city draws movie stars and fans who gather for the annual summer International Film Festival. You may recognize Karlovy Vary as the location for a number of films, including Casino Royale.

Terezín 

Spend a day exploring Terezín, an 18th-century fortress that was used as a concentration camp by the Germans during World War II. Terezín is a little-known but interesting example of the network of concentration camps in operation during that time. Most famous for its history as a gruesome prison, Terezín was a transit camp for Jews and other prisoners of the Nazis; most of those coming from the Czech lands who died in camps further to the west, such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, came through Terezín. Though the camp was used by the Germans for propaganda during the war—even managing to get the Red Cross to agree that the camps were not inhumane— the vast majority of those who went through Terezín did not survive. Inmates in Terezín are known for keeping cultural and artistic life alive and striving to make life as normal as possible for the children present. The on-site memorial details these efforts and illustrates Terezín’s terrible but enlightening history. Visiting such a site is an important historical and cultural experience during your study abroad stay in Central Europe.

Kutná Hora

Imagine you’re standing in one of the world’s most important financial centers, a place that sits squarely in the middle of a global trade network and provides an entire region with its common currency of exchange. Where are you? London in 1844? New York in 1964? No, you’re in Kutná Hora in the 14th century. Larger than London at that time, Kutná Hora was the economic and geographic center of a trade network that spanned Europe and reached across the spice routes to the Middle and Far East. The silver deposits mined in Kutná Hora were minted into a currency called groschen (a later currency from the region, the tolar, was the origin of the word “dollar”). On this day trip to Kutná Hora, you’ll explore this beautiful, well-preserved medieval town, now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Don a traditional white miner’s uniform to tour the old silver mines, visit the gothic-style Church of Saint Barbara with its flying buttresses, and see the nearby “bone church,” the 19th century Sedlec Ossuary decorated with elaborate arrangements of the bones of thousands of victims of the Black Death and Hussite religious wars.

Take advantage of the unique flavors of Prague! CEA offers a variety of cultural activities to match your interests. The CEA Prague Staff helps you get involved in local culture, experiencing music, history, sports, and many other themes. To help you plan, you’ll receive a calendar with CEA trips and activities and a booklet with descriptions. Less formal events are announced on the CEA semester Prague Facebook page, so there is always something going on. All activities listed are included in the program fee. For events that require reservations, there is a sign up during your first weeks on site. Below are just a few examples of the activities we offer in Prague.

Hike in Průhonice Botanical Gardens

Explore colorful plants and flowers in this gorgeous natural park, founded in 1885 by Count Silva-Tarouca. While at the gardens, you can also visit the romantic Průhonice Château, a serene setting that’s famous for weddings, receptions, and exhibitions.

Nuclear Bomb Shelter

After World War 2, the ruling communist government re-built a luxurious hotel on Wenceslas Square in the center of Prague. It provided an opportunity to include a bomb shelter in the basement that doubled as a center to spy on those staying in the hotel (comrades and foreigners). Take a guided tour of the equipment, technical machine rooms, and tunnel system that lie beneath the hotel and extends under the square. It’s a great way to get a first-hand glimpse into the historical and political events that shaped the fate of Prague, Czechoslovakia, and the former Eastern bloc.

Opera or Ballet Performance

Prague is well known for the wealth, variety, and quality of its performing arts. Plus, they often take place in beautifully restored historical theaters. Each semester we offer one selected performance for students to dress up and enjoy European high art.

Prague through the Eyes of Homeless People

CEA Prague partners with Pargulic, a not-for-profit organization founded and based in Prague, which helps people who have experienced homelessness in Prague to share their experiences and better understand how Czech society reacts to homelessness. This tour is well known and a popular alternative view of Prague for visitors. CEA Prague arranges our own tour for students to be able to see Prague in a different way.

Walk with Kafka: Tour and Literature

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) is Prague’s most famous literary icon and a giant of world literature. He lived most of his life in the center of Prague. His stories and novels are easy to read but difficult to understand; in this activity get an introduction to Kafka’s fiction and life, including a walking tour to see where he lived and the monuments devoted to Kafka.

Czech Culture Workshops

The CEA Prague staff offers several workshops and activities that help students learn about Czech culture, learn some Czech language (if not taking the Czech language course at AAU), and learn how to deal with and benefit from the changed cultural and social landscape. 

iMove with CEA

Staying healthy while abroad is not just about knowing how to see a doctor when you are sick. It is important to stay fit and healthy by exercising regularly, and CEA Prague offers our iMove program to encourage wellness and to help students get to know each other. We arrange various activities, some on a regular basis and some one-off events. For example, we have run weekly yoga and group training classes in the past and a running club, dance lessons, and other opportunities are possible.

Social Activities at the CEA Prague Center

Depending on the season and student interest, we host various social activities at our center in the historical Mala Strana district. Smaller get-togethers like board-game afternoons or creative workshops are announced ad hoc. We also host holiday meals or activities regularly. Get to know other students and the CEA Prague Staff at these fun events!

CEA Photo Contest

Reflect on your study abroad experience in Prague in a visual way. Participate in the contest for a chance to have your photographs displayed in the CEA Prague Center.

Mobile Journalist Program

Want to build your digital portfolio while you study abroad? Join the Mobile Journalist (MOJO) program! You’ll blog, photograph, and video your experience abroad, then share them on social media.

Alumni Ambassador Program

Your study abroad adventure doesn’t have to end when your program is over. Keep sharing your study abroad love on your home campus…become an Alumni Ambassador! This internship allows you to help other students on their study abroad journeys while gaining work experience and growing your professional network.

While CEA recommends that you choose one of our Prague housing options, you may opt to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes a more independent living situation with specific criteria – such as many roommates, location, décor, size, etc. – then independent housing might be the best option for you. Unfortunately, CEA cannot guarantee housing preferences.

Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. You will receive a rebate for your CEA housing payment if and when your request is approved. Rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or who pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date. Keep in mind, CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing.

Institutions

Anglo-American University
Anglo-American University

CEA is proud to collaborate with Anglo-American University (AAU). Our unique partnership combines the strengths of CEA's global education management with the academic strengths of AAU, an institution firmly rooted in both the local culture and the global marketplace. AAU's breadth of curriculum, instruction in English, interactive classes, and integration of students from around the world make this private Czech institution an ideal partner in comparison with programs offered by Czech state universities that serve only study-abroad students.

Founded in 1990, AAU is the oldest private university in the Czech Republic and the first to offer a full curriculum taught in English after the fall of communism. AAU provides accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs through five schools: Business Administration, Humanities & Social Sciences, Journalism, Media & Visual Arts, International Relations & Diplomacy, and Law. CEA students attend classes alongside degree-seeking local students.

AAU is located in the breathtaking 17th century Thurn-Taxis Palace, amidst the baroque architecture of Prague's historical Mala Strana quarter, a five-minute walk from the CEA Prague Center. The carefully renovated historical palace combines the beauty of typical Prague architecture with state-of-the art facilities and technology, all adjacent to the AAU library and a city park. The university is surrounded by the city’s main historical attractions. For example, a short walk from AAU over the medieval Charles Bridge brings you to the Old Town Square, while a short climb uphill brings you to the Prague castle.

Small, interactive classes are taught in English by an international faculty to a student population of about 800 students. With a diverse student body from 50 different countries and a small-university environment in the very heart of the city, AAU offers an educational experience that is unique in Prague. CEA students have access to all AAU facilities and are encouraged to participate in events, activities, and sports organized by the AAU Student Council. Since AAU’s student body is comprised of both Czech and international students, you’ll have ample opportunity to meet and interact with your peers in class and on-campus.

Accreditation

Anglo-American University is fully accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges, USA) and the Czech Republic Ministry of Education.

Grading

All final course grades are reported as letter grades. Final credit and grade evaluation is ultimately determined by your home university.
