3. Czech Republic

Right in the heart of Europe, where history meets romance and allure, the Czech Republic lies basking in a quietly sophisticated little niche. Far from the madding crowds of Austria or France, the Czech Republic offers students a life-changing experience off the beaten track. Glorious Prague – more magnificent than ever, growing more graceful and beautiful with age – is the ideal starting point for a journey around old-world Europe. Culturally diverse and idyllically unusual, students will feel as if they have left the world as they know it and stepped right into a fairy tale – castles and all.
