Study in Prague, "the crown jewel of central Europe" and the gateway between Eastern and Western Europe. Learn about the incredible cultural and political transformation of the Czech Republic that has occurred since the Velvet Revolution of 1989. At NYU Prague, courses like the Cultural History of the City in Central Europe and European-American Relations in the 21st Century explore fundamental topics in history and social justice. Courses are taught by politicians and public intellectuals, many of whom were key players in the country's transition to democracy. NYU Prague staff organize day trips and overnight excursions to historic sites like Kutná Hora, a medieval town and UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its cathedrals.
