Where?

As the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague offers students the opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful, historical cities in the heart of Europe. While learning some of the Czech language will be helpful, this city is the fifth most visited in Europe so English is spoken in both the workplace and the community. Prague’s scenic architecture has remained as some of the most well-preserved in the world with a variety of styles ranging from Romanesque to Neo-Classical.
