Cheaper than Most :

Money is a factor that plays a significant role in a student’s decision to choose to study in a country or not. Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is known for being quite an inexpensive city, at least when compared to other cities in central Europe. If you plan your grocery shopping, meals, and so on, within a specific budget, you shouldn’t have much problem at all. In addition, you will also be able to avail student discounts on various things.



Czech Food Equals Comfort Food :

A big problem with students is to find good food when they go abroad to study. The fact that it’s not just a day or two-long trip, but a three or four-year long academic course that they are there for, it makes sense that food shouldn’t be just edible, but to some extent, to their actual liking. The Czech Republic does not disappoint on that front at all. With staples, such as goulash, fried cheese, open-faced sandwiches, and more, Czech food is delicious to say the east, and definitely the best comfort food out there.
