After you arrive, at first you should arrange the accommodation. In general, IAESTE will take care about it. There are several possibilities of where to stay.
- Dormitory „Sazava“ or „Volha“ , for IAESTE UCT and CTU trainees. Two students share one room. Two rooms have a common small kitchen, a bathroom with shower and a toilet. The kitchen equipment is just basic, so do not expect to cook demanding foods (cooker and fridge; if you are lucky your Czech roommate might have a microwave). Washing machines are available in laudry room for free. Your roommate will be most probably a Czech student staying in Prague for summer either to work on his/her thesis or to do a summer job. You may find it handy to know someone local.
