Reason #5: THE CZECH REPUBLIC
The Cinematography Department is located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, which has everything a modern metropolis could offer. One advantage is the fact that the cost of living is much lower here than in Scandinavia, Great Britain or France. The Czech Republic is peaceful country rich in history which boasts numerous castles, chateaus or churches. You can find hundreds of theatres, galleries, museums, libraries and – naturally – cinemas.
The country has a population of 10.5 million and is located in the temperate climate zone which means you can swim in the summer and enjoy skiing in the mountains in winter! Yes, we have several mountain ranges and national parks where you can find beautiful lakes, rocks and various animals. Although there are lions in the Czech Republic’s national emblem, there is no need to be afraid in the outdoor although bears sometimes wander over the border with the Slovak Republic – a state which formed Czechoslovakia with the Czech Republic until end of 1992.
Almost all of your peers have studied English in primary and secondary schools so there will be no problem with a language barrier. Young people most often speak German, French and Spanish as their second language. In contrast to that, the older generation tends to have a knowledge of Russian as it was mandatory under the socialist regime. Still, if you learn a few Czech words before you arrive, people are sure to smile at you even more.
