Prague Panorama at Sunset

University of New York in Prague

Introduction

Prague is an ancient crossroads of culture and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but still a little off the beaten path for many. Prague’s cobblestone streets, lined with colorful and ornate 19th century buildings, lead to countless cafés, museums, galleries, shops, parks, and monuments. In Prague exists an incredible blend of old and new, a rich history for one to explore. Not only is Prague famously beautiful, it is also very safe. The Global Peace Index recently ranked the Czech Republic as the 6th safest country in the world. Best of all, UNYP is located right in the heart of this wonderful city.
