PragueNYU PraguePrague Charles Bridge


Prague stands at the crossroads of Europe, where East meets West and the past meets the present - a city of present-day political excitement and historical imagery. This is an exceptionally exciting time to study in Prague, as students from around the world are drawn to this vibrant and beautiful city to experience first-hand its reemergence as one of the leading centers of culture and thought in Europe.
NYU Prague offers a variety of courses in a wide range of subject areas, with upper level courses in music performance, journalism, and economics.


The NYU Prague curriculum introduces students to the historical, political, social, and cultural heritage of the Czech Republic, and it helps them understand its role in a changing Europe and appreciate the complex economic and political issues influencing the relationship between Eastern and Western Europe. All courses are taught in English, and students also have the opportunity to take language courses in Czech, German, Polish, or Russian.

NYU Residence Halls
If you prefer residence hall living, you may live in one of two NYU Prague residences, both of which are recently renovated and located in the residential neighborhood of Vinohrady (named for the fact that it was covered in vineyards dating back to the 14th century), a neighborhood well known for its bohemian cafés, acclaimed restaurants, and beautiful art nouveau buildings.

NYU-Leased Apartments
If you'd prefer a more independent lifestyle, you may choose from NYU-leased apartments that are available in recently renovated, early-20th-century buildings in the Nusle and Holesovice neighborhoods.


Prague resonates with the culture of Europe, past and present. Home to writers, artists, and musicians including Kafka, Mucha, Kundera, Mozart, Dvorák, and Smetana, Prague's many cafés, art galleries, music festivals, and theatres draw international performances and audiences. The NYU Prague academic center is located in two 15th-century buildings only steps away from the Old Town Square, considered the heart of the city, where some of the finest examples of Prague's architectural accomplishments, including Gothic, Renaissance, baroque, and art nouveau styles, can be observed.
