Your Passport to 2024!

The Prague Study Abroad Program at CGCC offers an opportunity to experience one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Located in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic is known as "the bridge between East and West," bordering Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovakia. 

Prague, also referred to as the "City of 100 Spires," boasts of a compact medieval center that is a labyrinth of cobbled lanes, ancient courtyards, and churches beyond measure, all overlooked by a 1,000 year-old castle. Unlike other European cities that were ravaged by war, Prague survived relatively unscathed, allowing its rich historical architecture to remain intact. As a traditional cultural center of Europe, Prague hosts a myriad of festivals and concerts.
