CET boat excursions are a wonderful way to meet other students as well as see the city from a whole new perspective. Here’s the beginning of the famous Charles Bridge as the sun goes down during a boat dinner. The river is a huge part of the city and it is still lively during the winter months.
This is Emma Flannery, another CET student along board the dinner boat during sundown. Geared for winter, all of the students enjoyed the sightseeing as well as connecting with new friends and classmates.
One way students are recommended to explore in Prague is by hopping on a tram and going to the end of the line. Who knew a city would have such a beautiful area designated for hiking? This is Sarka Natural Park on the Northwest side of Prague.
A cold and gloomy Czech countryside can’t stop CET students from walking a few miles and smiling the whole way home. Prague has the ability to connect to many other small Czech Villages by tram, bus, or metro. It is a wonderful experience to study in a place that inspires creativity and adventure.

Represented is a neon sign from NaFilm, a small, but educational film museum right next to CET Prague. This film museum was built from the ground up and funded by many students who worked hard to see its existence come to life for students and visitors of all ages.
CET guided walking tours allow for students to understand the map of the city as well as the history! This photo was taken as the lights came up on the West side of the Charles Bridge. After walking for two hours through the Old Town, there was an appreciation in the air for the city we study in.
. My roommate, Isha, relaxes on the windowsill of our apartment in Praha 2. Our wonderful location has a tram stop outside, a park a few steps away, and a grocery store beneath our feet. During our lunchtime, we like to open the windows and allow for light to come in as we bond over learning Czech, despite how difficult it can be!
. The kitchens to CET apartments remind many students of home. The nice facilities make it a wonderful place to cook a meal with your roommates as well as enjoy a glass of wine after a long day of class. Coming back to our apartment has begun to feel like our real home, even though it has only been two weeks.
CET hosts orientation activities such as scavenger hunts through the city, which are amazing ways to connect with fellow students. During our trip, we ended up finding many interesting art installations, but you can’t forget to look UP!
