School Trips to Prague
School trips to Prague offer layers of excitement, culture and history. This city is both modern and traditional offering medieval architecture of castles and palaces, and a bohemian and lively atmosphere.
Behind the ancient facade is a city that has been rapidly modernising since the Velvet Revolution, which took place in the late eighties. Privatisation and capitalism are both evident in this city, offering business students a unique insight into both hi-tech and traditional companies.
For Business & Economic students Prague's transition to privatisation and the free market has been smoothed by foreign investment and a thriving tourist industry. Business visits are varied such as the Skoda Production Car Plant, Prague Airport Tour and U Fleku Brewery. For Film & Media Studies students may go on a tour of the world famous Barrandov Film Studio which is a hub for film talent this side of the Atlantic and Radio Free Europe also open their doors to give students an insight into production methods. Finally, Prague is a great sporting city, we can arrange visits to both Sparta and Slavia Football Club stadiums and the Sparta Prague Ice Hockey Stadium as well as a visit to the O2 Sazka Arena which is a modern multifunctional sport and leisure complex.

Prague Castle Tour
Prague Castle should be the number one tourist destination for any school trip to Prague. It resembles a small town itself as it is the largest ancient castle in the world, measuring a whopping 570m long and on average 128m wide. The Czech kings, Holy Roman Emperors and presidents of the Czech Republic all used the castle as a place of work.
Jewish Quarter Tour

The guide will explain about the history of the Jews since the 2nd World War. The tour includes entrance to the Maisel, the exhibition space and depository of Jewish Museum.
River Cruises on Vltava River
Many of Prague's famous sights border the river so a river cruise is a great way to see the city. Attractions include Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Prague Parliament, the National Theatre and Vysehrad Fortress. A one hour cruise is a great sightseeing option or take a two hour cruise with buffet dinner as an evening activity.
Ice Hockey Match
Czech ice hockey is among the world's best, and though the nation's superstars mostly play in the North American National Hockey League, the domestic O2 Extraliga offers the ice hockey experience at great value prices and is a great way to entertain your students in the evening.
This museum, principally devoted to the Czech artist Kupka, houses an excellent collection of Czech and Central European art.
Black Light Theatre Show
Language barriers are not a problem with this typically Czech art form, as most of it is pantomime. It is played out in a varied programme of shows and takes the audience on a path from total darkness to vivid lights and colours in the extreme. The intense darkness of black theatre adds to the fantasy.
Day Trip to Karlovy Vary
Karlovy Vary is a scenic spa town situated 120km west of Prague. The healing spring waters of the Hot Spring Vridlo are renowned for treating a range of ailments. The town also has a theatre, art galleries, casinos and the Museum of Glass and China.
Terezin, Jewish Ghetto Town & Museum
This second world war labour camp and Jewish Ghetto Town is a very popular destination for educational trips as a reminder of the disastrous consequences of the suppression of freedom, democracy and human rights.
This must be the only museum in the world designed in the form of a wheat field. It was built in 1911-12 by the mystic sculptor, František Bílek as his studio and home, and still contains much of his work.
Museum of Decorative Arts
This neo-Renaissance museum is considered a work of art in its own right. With richly decorated halls and stained glass windows it is well worth a visit. Its treasures include furniture, tapestries, clocks, ceramics, glass and even clothing from previous centuries.
Skoda Car Plant
The visit begins with a video presentation on the history of the company and then continues with a visit to the Skoda Museum, built in an old factory building to commemorate the Centenary of the company. The group will be shown the design process and see how a car is made. The visit continues with a chance to view the production plant itself. From a raised viewing platform you can usually see both the engine assembly plant and the final assembly line.
Visit to the Staropramen brewery for a guided tour of the production process followed by a tasting. The group will have the opportunity to see the storage of the raw materials and the fermentation process (at a controlled temperature) in both open tanks and closed vats. The guide will then describe the canning and barreling processes. During the tasting session, the guide will talk about the background of the brewery, export opportunities and the company's take over by another Belgian brewery.
Ruckl & Sons Glassworks
A private company with a long term tradition of lead crystal production, offering tours of the glassworks with a professional explanation of the operations. During the excursion students will get to know the individual stages of producing glass crystal by hand, i.e. the furnaces, processing, designing and polishing. A great example of a traditional artisan industry.
Barrandov Film Studio
A visit to the famous Czech film studios can be arranged. Foreign film producers often use Barrandov not only because of the low cost and the beautiful Prague scenery but also because of the recognised skill of Czech professionals.
Museum of Communism
Divided into sections named The Dream, The Reality and The Nightmare, Prague’s Museum of Communism traces the dark history of Communist rule in Czechoslovakia from the Party’s inception in 1921 to the 1989 Velvet Revolution that toppled the regime and brought democracy to the nation. The exhibits form a written and pictorial narrative of the dismal, oppressive days of totalitarian rule.
