School Business Studies Trip to Prague
The city of Prague has a stunning cityscape of medieval architecture, including Prague Castle - the largest ancient castle in the world. The old town square is the heart of the city and, since the 10th century, has been the scene of many great events both glorious and tragic. As the Czech Republic recently became one of the European Union's ten new members, there has never been a better time to experience the rapidly changing economy of the new Europe. On a business studies tour to the beautiful city of Prague, there are plenty of educational activities to take part in, including a visit to the Skoda factory, attending a lecture at the CERGE Institute or a guided tour of a brewery.
