Czech out Prague before you study abroad

You are probably thinking about studying abroad, which will be one of the best decisions you will ever make (seriously).

While there are many important factors that come into play, where you decide to do the “studying” is the most important part of the entire process.

Look no further.

Prague in the Czech Republic is the best place to live, travel and yes… study.


Perfect location

So first thing’s first. Most students study abroad not only to live in a new city, but also to roam around Europe and travel as much as possible.

Prague is centrally located, so not only can you fly anywhere (for cheap too!), you can also take a train and even take buses.

Channel your inner-traveler and go see the world!


More for less

The Czech Republic uses the Czech Koruna as its currency. One U.S. dollar is equivalent to 20 Korunas. This means basically everything is cheap… I’m talking dirt cheap.

It’s common to go out to dinner and drink(s) for roughly $10. If that isn’t a game-changer, I don’t know what is.


Nightlife for every night

Of course every student’s first priority is his/her studies, but nightlife is always a plus (especially when the drinking age is 18).

Prague has more than 100 bars and nightclubs to choose from.

Whether you’re in the mood for something wild like Karlovy Lazne, the biggest nightclub in Central Europe, or something a little more low-key like Hemingway Bar, known for killer handcraft cocktails, there is always a place to go for amazing entertainment any night of the week.


Beautiful buildings  

Prague consists of endless red rooftops, meandering cobblestone streets and enchanting, historic buildings.

A building can date back as far as the Romanesque Era, like the Rotunda of the Holy Cross, and its neighbor can be the modern-day, multi-story Dancing House.

When you walk through the streets of Prague, you are literally walking throughout history. It is magical.


Foodie paradise

Have an open mind when it comes to Czech food.

Duck with cabbage and goulash with dumplings are just a few of the basic traditional Czech meals.

Don’t worry if you aren’t into trying new (even kinda strange) food.

Prague has many different restaurants ranging from mouth-watering Italian (Pasta Fresca) or unbelievable sushi (Hanabi), ultimately making Prague every foodie’s dream.
