Prague is an intercultural, young city full of opportunities and contrasts. It is filled with the spirit of tourists and international students. As we discovered, it is not easy to find local people in the heart of the capital: you never know who you are going to meet! Italians, Polish, Spanish, German, Americans, Vietnamese, Russians, Latin Americans, Ukrainians, Dutch people…. And there is an explanation of this phenomena.
Architecture. Passing the streets of Prague, one cannot avoid his/her head moving around not to lose any attraction nor any interesting spot. Charles Bridge, the Old Town Square with famous Astronomical Clock, Prague Castle together with the whole district near it and many other masterpieces hold you in a desire to stay in the city as long as possible. So sad we had to leave soon.
Cuisine. Of course, as everyone already knows, there are no competitors to the real Czech beer, and we had the possibility to check it. In terms of food, we have to say that it was different from the usual food that we used to eat but it was also very tasty. We got those huge portions from the local organizers who fed us with different dishes of the national cuisine. So we were never hungry and always happy 🙂
Hospitality. If we had to select how hospitable was AEGEE-Praha to us on the scale from 1 to 5, they would get a 10! This local really took good care of us in terms of welcoming, feeding, hosting, showing the city and helping with preparations to the local sessions and everything else. We were happy that we got to know its members
Sessions. We had 15 participants during the session. People were quite active and willing to share their opinion. The mapping debate game as most interactive part was the most interesting for them. People were open in their answers and we heard very interesting and intelligent points. We hope everyone got tons of inspiration about AEGEE, Europe on Track project and active participation in future-changing activities!
