In the fall of 2012 I studied abroad in Prague with CET Academic Programs and since then, a day hasn’t gone by without me reflecting on how beautiful the Czech Republic is.
With its gothic castles and cathedrals, cobblestone streets, endless rivers and deep caves, the Czech Republic is filled with photo opportunities for city and nature lovers alike. Perhaps what makes the country most unique, is that it’s truly the melting pot of Europe; several wars, the Prague Spring and the Fall of the Iron Wall later, the Czech Republic is the perfect mix of east meets west, and history meets modernity. You’ll just have to capture it for yourself, so be sure to charge your camera!
I was fortunate enough to have studied abroad with a program that facilitated my visits to the majority of the places on this list, but for those of you traveling on your own, here’s a list of the “must sees” in Bohemia and Moravia.
