Study tours to Prague
The capital of Czech Republic, Prague, is not one of Europe's largest capitals, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in esthetics, history, and affordable prices. Few cities in Europe are as breathtaking as Prague and no other will give you 600 years of architecture untouched by war or other disasters.
A study trip to Tycho Brahe's Prague is filled with sagas and myths about everything from religion to great kings. When you pass the mythical Charles Bridge, which separates the old city from the modern, you will see many good examples. 30 different statues are lined up along the old bridge. Among other things there is an old crucifix where an old cross stood in the old days. Here it is common that christians kiss the crucifix for good luck. The Charles Bridge is dominated by monuments of the church, which all have a myth connected to them.

With 1.2 million inhabitants Prague is not much bigger than Copenhagen and that makes it easy to cope with. The city is known for its many taxis, but they should be approached with caution. Although Czech Republic is a developed nation, many tourists have been robbed in unauthorised taxis. Regardless, the price should be agreed upon beforehand. The price level in Prague is low so neither metro or taxi is expensive.
