Your Local Circle of Friends

Want to know where the best jazz clubs are? Curious about legendary Czech marionettes—how they’re made, where to buy them? Feel like discussing a new film over a plate of svíčková (beef with dumplings)? Enjoying the city means making local friends, and CET gives you the keys to get started. You may share your apartment with a Czech roommate, collaborate on your project with Czech students, or produce your film with a Czech production team. In the words of one former student, Czech peers “gave me the chance to do great things in the city that I couldn’t have known about otherwise.”

Housing & Meals

You’ll share a spacious apartment with CET peers and possibly a Czech roommate. Apartments are wonderful—centrally located and perfect for soaking in the experience of being a budding filmmaker in an incredible city.

Apartments are fully furnished with washing machines and wifi access.

For meals, take your pick of local restaurants and eateries, or cook for yourself in your apartment kitchen.

Getting Around Prague

Buses, metros, and trams in Prague are clean, frequent, and timely. And we provide you a transportation pass so you can explore the city and never have to worry about cost.
CET has a center in the heart of Prague, a short walk from famous Wenceslas Square. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the apartments to the CET center, and the getting there is part of the fun—you might pass the Prague Castle or cross the Vltava River along the way.
