Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Czech Republic has enjoyed a huge surge in popularity. While most visitors pass through on a whirlwind tour, when you study abroad with AIFS you can spend a summer, January term, semester or academic year exploring Prague and the surrounding regions of Bohemia and Moravia. Wander the cobblestone streets of central Prague, comparing the Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance, Art Nouveau and other architectural styles on display in the city, or relax in the spa towns of West Bohemia.

Choose from Semester or Summer tracks in Central European Studies. (See the University of Economics program page for AIFS's other program in Prague.)
