Walking 5 minutes in any direction in Prague (or hopping on the super efficient public transportation trams or metro) means finding a new café, art installation or historical site to check out. Prague has the feel of a big city, but almost everything is within walking distance. In one day, you can hit highlights like Old Town Square, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, one of the many markets, the NaFilm museum, one of the many amazing Trdelnik stands, and much more.

Get situated When you land in your destination, there’s unfortunately a lot of logistical issues to tackle. Yes, you’re about to embark on an amazing adventure, but it’s not a total vacation.

After a slightly stressful week of midterms, we were gifted with a week off of school for fall break. My roommate and I decided to take full advantage of our time off and traveled to Ireland, London, and Portugal. We had such an amazing time. We got to meet up with lots of friends on our different stops and experienced so many new cultures. Additionally, we may or may not have eaten our way through the trip. This video gives a little bit of a peek into our…

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE coffee. Like 4+ cups of coffee a day. I know it’s a bit obsessive but once you come to Prague you’ll understand why. Back in the States, I would have my morning coffee when I woke up. My roommates and I would take turns waking up first and making a pot and then go about our days, I might have stopped at Starbucks or The Market on Larimer Square. back in Denver, CO where I attended university but that…

Going to school in Prague and attending Anglo-American University is completely different than my home university. Although it was unfamiliar at first, I have come to love it. The school itself is a short twenty minute walk along the river for me. Even though I can take the tram, I prefer to walk because the city is gorgeous. The first time I walked into AAU I was taken aback. During orientation they told us the building was an old palace and you can definitely tell. The staircase leading…

To put it simply, interning in a foreign country is so rad. I arrived in Prague with the slightest knowledge about my internship. After many Skype fails and lots of back and forth emailing, I woke up one fine morning in July to a welcome email from the company where I now intern! Although the email contained a brief description of my internship duties, it was very vague and left me with more questions than answers. During my second week in Prague I finally got to start my…

study abroad, studying abroad, study abroad in Prague

Studying abroad is a wonderful time for students to make lifelong friends, international contacts, and experience different cultures. Unfortunately some students miss out on expanding their international network while they are abroad. The easy thing to do is to stay within your comfort zone while abroad, however it should be a time for new experiences. Isn’t that why we all chose to study abroad in the first place? To experience something new and exciting, which will not only be an adventure of a lifetime, but also excel us into…

“Studying abroad is going to be an amazing experience, you’re going to learn so much.” -everyone I heard this phrase, or one just like this, countless times from family, friends, teachers – almost everyone I talked to about my plans for my spring semester. I responded each time with a big smile and something to the effect of “I am so excited, I can’t wait.” The response had become almost instinctive, and behind that smile hid uncertainty and a wonderful sense of anticipation. Throughout the process of planning…

I have about a month and a half left of my study abroad experience, so lately i have enjoyed just exploring Prague in my free time. The tourist attractions and activities are fun but I have found many other unique (and free) things to do all around the city. These are my four free and favorite things to do in Prague! Petrin Park The Petrin Tower (or mini version of the Effiel Tower) is a common tourist attraction but what most tourists do not realize is the surrounding…

A major part of the study abroad experience is living in and among the culture. During my semester in Prague, I get the opportunity to live in an apartment with four roommates in Prague 1. I love that my apartment is in a regular complex and I live alongside Czechs. A great part about traveling with CEA is that they organize and furnish your apartment with everything you need to have an amazing study abroad experience! Come and take a quick tour of my apartment!
