Prague, Czech Republic
Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, is known as the "city of a hundred spires" and "the golden city". It is said that everyone who sets foot in Prague falls in love with it. A city of museums and galleries, churches and synagogues, palaces and gardens, Prague boasts an amazing mixture of architectural styles and periods, from the Middle Ages to the present. Our excursion takes you to Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge, the National Theater, and the Old Jewish Cemetery. You’ll also visit Prague's main churches and synagogues, including the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Tyn, the Baroque Church of St. Nicholas, and the Old-New synagogue in Prague's 13th-century Jewish quarter, one of the oldest and best-preserved in Europe. You’ll also have free time to visit the Dvorak Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the National Museum. There’s no shortage of dance clubs, cafés, tea houses, restaurants, and beer halls to help you unwind when the museums and galleries have closed.
Potsdam, a World Heritage site with beautifully restored architecture and old-world charm, is just 10 miles southwest of Berlin. This picturesque town offers parks, lakes, outdoor cafés, and its own Brandenburg Gate. A half-day city tour will show you Potsdam’s main sights, including the 18th century Sanssouci Palace and its magnificent 600-acre park; Cecilienhof, the historic country house where Truman, Churchill, and Stalin met at the famous Potsdam Conference following WWII; and the city’s three main historical areas, the Russian colony of Alexandrowka, the Holländisches Viertel (the Dutch quarter) and the Bohemian Weaver's quarter. Renting a bike is a fun way to spend the afternoon exploring Potsdams’ many parks and lakes, or visiting the Babelsberg Filmpark, exploring the world of nature at the Biosphaere, or playing tennis and swimming at the Volkspark.
Sachsenhausen was a Nazi concentration camp in the North of Berlin, used mainly for political prisoners from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in 1945. After WWII, the structure was used by the Soviets as a special camp until 1950. The remaining buildings and grounds are now open to the public as a museum.
Built by Augustus the Strong in the 18th century, Dresden was known for its culture, art, and sophistication, as well as its fabulous riverside setting on the Elbe. During WWII, the city was annihilated by Allied bombing on the night of February 13/14, 1945. After Germany’s reunification in 1990, reconstruction efforts resulted in one of Europe’s most striking baroque cities. We’ll start our visit with the most ambitious of all the reconstruction projects, The Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), located in the heart of Old Town. We’ll also explore Zwinger Palace, an important late baroque building; the Renaissance-style Semper Opera House; Katholische Hofkirche, the largest church in Saxony; Brühl's Terrace on the Elbe river; and the Old Masters Gallery, home to many great works of art. You’ll have ample time to sample Dresden’s outdoor café life and drink a toast to the reconstruction of Augustus the Strong’s beautiful baroque city with a glass of sekt (sparkling wine).
The sample budget is unavailable at this time. Please check back later or ask your CEA Admissions Counselor/Site Specialist for a comparable program’s sample budget.
