Veritas Christian Study Abroad & Missions: Prague, Czech Republic

 

What is Prague Like?

It is impossible to be bored in Prague, as no matter what your interests are, you will  find something in the city that calls to you. Gaze in awe as you take in a showing of Mozart's Don Giovanni, in the original theater where the opera premiered some 200 years ago. Take tours of the Prague Castle, Franz Kafka's house, the Jewish quarter, or any one of the many museums that dot the city. Dine on delicious Czech goulash, spicy sausage from a street vendor, or treat yourself to a traditional Czech dinner of fried cheese and bread dumplings with cherry sauce. Relax with your classmates in beautiful gardens, or take a day trip to one of the peaceful countryside towns. Whether you're a history buff, architect geek, or eclectic music fan, there's a piece of Prague that's waiting for you.
