Prague, the home to Czech College, undoubtedly  is one of the the most beautiful cities on the planet. As student in prague you could spend days venturing over Prague’s bridges, walking along the Vltava River and exploring the cities neighborhoods, and would never get bored.

Also the Old City in Prague filled with beautiful churches, Castles, bridges and quaint homes is a must see.

Seriously, Prague is stunning. Not to mention the beer is delicious and often conveniently cheaper than water.

Apart from Prague, there are many more stunning cities around Czech Republic that you can visit , say by  boarding a train.The below given are the list of cities you can can wake up in the next morning by taking a night train from Prague. 

BerlinBy day, Berlin is a cultural wonderland, with an impressive roster of museums, art galleries and historic neighborhoods to explore. By night, Berlin boasts some of the best nightlife Europe has to offer — whether you want to listen to some low-key live music or rave the night away, there’s a club for every style.

Budapest, Hungary

The “hipster capital of Europe” is also possibly the most beautiful spot on the continent. The “playground of twentysomethings” is, clearly, perfect for young travelers looking for cultural enrichment and some uber-cool nightlife. Check out District VII’s offbeat shops and cafes, pop into a “ruin pub,” visit a few museums and ogle the city’s gorgeous architecture.

Rotterdam, Netherlands

Yes, Amsterdam is great. And you should visit there. But Rotterdam is often overlooked, and it’s just too cool for that to be the case. Rotterdam is a multicultural port city, with an ever-changing skyline, bumping nightlife and some great museums. Head to Museumpark and check out the Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Kunsthal Rotterdam. Stroll through the Delfshaven neighborhood. And yes, there arecoffee shops in Rotterdam, just like the ones in that other Dutch city.

Brussels, Belgium

Reasons to go to Brussels: chocolate, waffles, beer. Oh, and some really pretty architecture, historic sites and a cozy cafe culture. Sip a latte among welcoming locals, explore Matonge (the city’s African quarter), visit the “Bozar” cultural center, and, of course, eat all of the delicious things listed above.

Florence, Italy

Ah, Firenze! Beautiful, historic and charming, Florence will steal your heart. Art history buffs will be in heaven after trips to the Uffizi, Duomo, Galleria dell’Accademia and the city’s many churches. Other musts: a romantic stroll across the Ponte Vecchio, a day of exploring the cobblestone streets and sampling Florentine street eats, and the breathtaking view from Piazzale Michelangelo.
This is our take on some of the most beautiful cities of  Europe. These places being close to Prague , we hope, will not put pressure on your student holiday budget. Have a wonderful time.
