Erasmus Experience in Prague, the Czech Republic by Ana


Why did you choose to go to Prague, the Czech Republic?

I'd heard a lot of good things about the city and its Erasmus atmosphere, but now that I know the city, they didn't even do it justice! It's an amazing place!

What is the student lifestyle like in Prague?

The atmosphere there is unforgettable, there's something to do every day and the people there are pretty sociable, in general.

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

100%, it's one of the prettiest cities in the world and the university (I went the the Charles University) is rather prestigious.

What is the food like there?

The food isn't that great actually, once you've tried the traditional goulash and dumplings, the rest of the food is just meat in different sauces and it's very difficult to find fish in the restaurants.

Was it difficult to find accommodation in Prague?

Personally, my university assigned me a place in a student residence.

How much does it cost to live in Prague?

Counting the residence, travelling, food and partying, it costs around €450 a month.

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

The language is the only thing that I gave up on, it was impossible, Czech is a very difficult language to learn.

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

By plane, and actually the tickets aren't normally that cheap.

Where would you recommend for a night out in Prague?

There are loads of places for going out, the Erasmus students normally mostly go to Chapeau Rouge, Nebe and a few other places.

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

The best thing to do to see the culture is to take the free tour of the old city as well as the castle, because it's worth it to be able to see the city once you understand its history. You can see the whole city in three full days.

Do you have any advice for students going to Prague in the future?

Enjoy the city and the experience, because it goes by very quickly and I know that it's going to be one of the best times of your life!
