I got a 1200€ scholarship from Erasmus for 4 months.

What is the student lifestyle like in Prague?

I did not have that many classes so I was always able to do a lot of activities during the week. There are a lot of students from all over the world here, so when you go out you always meet other student. It is also awesome that they offer a lot of student discount here.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Prague to other students?

I would definitely recommend it, it is one if the cheaper cities in Europe and you will a have good time for sure. It is also easy to travel to other countries from Prague.

Czech food is really heavy food with a lot of meat and potatoes, so if you like that you will love it here. But since Prague is such a huge city, there are a lot of different restaurants here.

Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Prague?

I unfortunately had to pay an agency fee for my room in a shared apartment, but you don't always have to pay one.

How much does it cost to live in Prague?

I would calculated at least 400€ for accommodation (if you want to have your own room) and maybe another 350€ for food and extra activities.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

They have Czech language classes. The language however is very difficult, best just to stick with english.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Prague from your city?

I could take a train for 6 1/2 hours from my city.

Just go to the Popo Cafe (there have the cheapest beer) and from there you can just walk to the next club or stay there.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Prague?

The Venue is very good for breakfast/lunch food.

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

Prague is full of cultural sites, every building is absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend going to the Theatre, the tickets are really cheap with student discount and theatres are stunning.

Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Prague in the future?

I would really advice you to buy the ISIC Student card, with that card you get discount almost everywhere.
