However, it is advisable  for you, as a student, try to learn Czech language . It will help  you to expand your network and find new opportunities. 

Living Costs

Of course, this also depends on the lifestyle of the student. 

It’s important to know that  Prague is the most prosperous city in Central-and Eastern Europe, and more prosperous than many cities in Western Europe. Accordingly, Prague is not a city that allows very low living costs. But life is generally affordable. 

The following costs serve as an example:

Accommodation : EUR 250/month  ( Shared flat or double room in a student dorm)

Eating  : EUR 2 – 3 per meal in the canteen

It is also easy and considerably not expensive to travel around to neighbor countries by train or bus. Tickets from Prague to Munich, Berlin, Vienna or Budapest are around 15 to 25 euros. Tickets for other towns in the Czech Republic are usually not more than 10 euros.

For the students who are searching for rich cultural activities, Czech Republic is a great option. Its capital, Prague, is an amazing destination. Famous for its erudition, this city is different from most towns in the world. In the Czech’s capital it is possible to watch stunning classical concerts, operas or ballets in the most beautiful theaters in Europe for less than 10 euros.

For those who are looking for a live night-life, Prague’s clubs are famous in the whole continent. The entrance tickets for most of the clubs in the city vary from 5 to 15 euros.

And last, but not least: the beer! The Czech people are incredibly proud of their beer, considered by many as the best beer in the world. In the Czech Republic it is not an overstatement to tell that beer is cheaper than water. In most of the restaurants it is true. The half-liter glass cost as little as 1 euro.
