TRANSPORTATION

Prague offers several means of public transportation, buses, trams and also the 
most convenient one, a subway (metro) system. It is not all that difficult to get 
wherever whenever. Subway system runs from cca. 5AM til aprox. midnight (a 
bit longer on Fridays and Saturdays). Same goes for the buses and trams. 
Between midnight and 5AM there are special night trams and buses. These 
are not the same as the daytime buses and trams and they run only once or 
twice in an hour, however they connect most of the city parts. As an incoming 
student, we will provide you with a 1-month public transportation ticket for a 
small fee, which is valid for everything...buses, trams and the subway network.
If you want to travel somewhere outside Prague and explore the beauty of the 
Czech Republic then we offer you the great bus and train service. Traveling by 
bus is often the quickest and most direct way to get to various cities. Trains 
are also a good way to travel, however sometimes they are more expensive. 
Bus and train service also offer trips to foreign countries such as German, 
Austria, Hungary… that gives you an opportunity to have a weekend away.

SOCIAL PROGRAM
There is a vast selection of social program available during the summer months, in Prague as well as in other cities. Prague is also a great location to explore our neighboring countries from. 

Social program in other months is limited, but there is a social program by the LCs and Contact Persons as well.
MUST SEE
Prague is a very nice and old city full of different architecture styles – from gothic to modern styles so
everyone can find here place of his/her interest :)
The most famous is Prague Castle. To see everything nice and important there I strongly recommend to
you more than one visit, you can just take a walk there (for free) or visit some museums and such.
Also whole of the center of Prague is very beautiful and all old building are there almost in one place – 
Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, ...
I also recommend not to miss Vysehrad castle, from legend is even older than Prague castle.
