Czech Republic: Prague Semester

CCIS Study Abroad in Prague, Czech Republic

Program Overview

As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe since the fall of the Communist government in 1989, Prague offers a rich cultural, historical, and architectural experience. From the famous Charles Bridge to Old Town to Mala Strana, every corner turned offers sites to savor. The city is student friendly and walking from one destination to another to another is enjoyable and easy to do. For destinations too far to walk, the city offers a good and inexpensive tram system.

Entertainment abounds in Prague. Special days, festivals and public holidays are widely celebrated so visitors can observe and participate in these local traditions. Musical performances from classical and jazz to rock are frequent; there is an International Music Festival held in May/June, and a Mozart Festival held in September. It is not uncommon to walk down the streets of Prague and be handed fliers for upcoming events and performances.
