About Prague

Prague is an ancient crossroads of culture, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and still a little off the beaten path for many.  Prague’s cobblestoned streets, lined with colorful and ornate 19th-century buildings, will lead you to countless cafés, museums, galleries, shops, parks, and monuments.  In Prague, you will find an incredible blend of old and new, a rich history that is right before your eyes. 

Not only is Prague famously beautiful it is also very safe.  The Global Peace Index ranked the Czech Republic as the 6th safest country in the world in its 2016 report.

The city of Prague provides an excellent environment for living, learning, and expanding your horizons. Best of all, UNYP is located right in the heart of this wonderful city!
