Why visit the Czech Republic?

A flourishing economy

The Czech Republic’s economy has been described as one of Europe’s most flourishing! This is a fascinating destination for business studies school trips, as students will learn how the country moved from a command economy to the free market with the fall of Communism in 1989.

One of the highlights of a business studies school trip is an economic seminar at the CERGE Institute, which can be tailored to meet your requirements. Past topics covered include the development of the Czech recovery since the collapse of Communism, the problems of privatisation and the issue of Czech accession to the European Union.

An unforgettable introduction to Central Europe

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic has been a cultural centre for Central Europe since the Middle Ages. A spectacular city famous for its bridges and spires, Prague has a long history of inspiring artists, writers and poets.

The Czech capital has a long history of hosting significant cultural events and has a number of important performance venues, including the famous Estates Theatre, which hosted the premieres of Mozart’s operas Don Giovanni and La Clemenza di Tito.

Prague also hosts a number of cultural and music festivals throughout the year. And the city is also home to a number of world-class museums, as well as hundreds of concert halls and galleries.

A fascinating history

Bohemia, now a region of the Czech Republic, was an Imperial State of the Holy Roman Empire for over 800 years and the revolt against the Habsburgs in Prague was the start of the Thirty Years’ War.

When the Habsburg Monarchy collapsed at the end of the First World War, the state of Czechoslovakia was created. Occupied by the Nazis during the Second World War, Czechoslovakia then came under Communist rule for more than 40 years, before the Velvet Revolution liberated the country in 1989. Four years later, the Czech Republic and Slovakia split peacefully into two separate countries.

So, a school trip to the Czech Republic can offer your students a fascinating insight into the history of Europe from the Middle Ages right through to the present day!

Planning early will also mean you have a greater choice of accomodation and travel options.

If you start planning your trip later than this, don't worry, it is definitely possible to plan a trip in a shorter amount of time. We're here to support you and we have a selection of templates and useful guides to help guide you and save you time throughout the process.
