Location


Prague is located on the banks of the Vltava River. The combination of historic bridge crossings and the site of Prague castle make it one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was one of the only European cities left untouched during World War II. Architecture from several different eras are perfectly preserved, so it is possible to view a cathedral built during the middle ages and then turn the corner to view a court house built during the baroque era. Prague is home to several museums, the National Theatre, the world’s most famous astronomical clock, and a vibrant nightlife. Its vast public transportation system makes it easy to get around. The inexpensive cost of living makes it possible to fully experience all that Prague has to offer on a student budget.
