Why go?

Ev­ery bit as his­toric, as beau­ti­ful and as cul­tur­ally en­rich­ing as the Euro­pean heavy­weights of Paris, Lon­don or Rome, Prague has emerged over re­cent decades to be a jewel in the con­ti­nent’s crown. Its his­toric cen­ter re­mains mag­nif­i­cently in­tact, sur­rounded by cob­bled lanes, quiet court­yards, chic cafés and an­cient ar­chi­tec­ture.

Where To Stay

Cen­tral Prague is bro­ken down into 10 dis­tricts, with most first-time vis­i­tors bas­ing them­selves around Prague 1, the heart of the city. Here you have two good op­tions. The Old Town or the Lesser Town. The Old Town is at the heart of ev­ery­thing, but over­priced and ‘touristy’ as a re­sult. The Lesser Town is still close to the heart of ev­ery­thing but with a more tran­quil, vil­lagey at­mos­phere.

The Lo­gis­tics

You’ll al­most cer­tainly fly into Vá­clav Havel Air­port Prague, 15km west of the city. Reg­u­lar and re­li­able buses and trains will get you into the cen­ter of the city within 20 min­utes or so. The city is eas­ily walk­a­ble so a taxi to your course is the easy op­tion.
