While most students want to study abroad in London, Paris or Rome, those who are willing to adventure to the Czech Republic find that Prague is the most perfect place to be a student.

From the dark age of Gothic architecture to the fairytale buildings from the Baroque period, very inch of Prague is covered in gorgeous structures and colors for you to admire. Where else can you find a modern city that looks like this?

2. Visible History

The famed Lennon Wall still stands, covered in graffiti from people all over the world. The wall was originally created by dissidents during the Communist era in Prague for people to write their grievances and hopes for the future.

4. Koruna not Corona


Although the name on their money does sound oddly similar to the Mexican cerveza, it's one of the few European nations not on the Euro, making Prague an exceptionally cheap city to live in. A night out on the town costs about $20. Groceries for two weeks amount to $25 at most. It's a student-budget haven.

6. Cheap, Good Booze


For as little as a dollar you can get a huge glass of golden beer. The cheap price almost begs you to have another. Although German beer is renown for it's superb quality, the Czech beer, Pilsner Urquell, gives the Germans a run for their money.

7. Fairytale Castle


Keeping with the theme of a fairytale city, the Prague Castle is stunning both at a distance and up-close. It also offers some of the best views of the orange-roofed city, perfect for the Instagram-lover.

10. Art, Art Everywhere


Traditional sculptures dot the town and Mucha's art adorns the walls of galleries throughout Prague, but the most avant-garde artist to see while in Prague is David Cerny. Did I mention he has a sculpture that gyrates and squirts water from male genitalia?

11. Quiet Town


Even the busiest crowds that surround the Astronomical Clock in Old Town are as quiet as mice when compared to the big-city bustle of New York or Los Angeles. The peace and quiet are easily welcomed and enjoyed.

Na Shledanou, Praha!


Every student who has studied abroad in Prague recognizes the effect the magical city has had on them when they return home. It's an experience unlike any other!
