Where can you find us?
One of the great attractions is the location of FSV UK in Prague, the heart of Europe.

The capital of the Czech Republic is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world; with more than one thousand years of history and over 1,2 million inhabitants. It is famous for its beauty and cultural wealth.

The city boasts a well preserved historic centre incorporating all existing architectonic styles and features: Romanesque rotundas, Gothic and Baroque churches, Renaissance palaces and gardens, Art Nouveau, Cubist and Modern buildings. Prague is also full of parks and beautifully landscaped gardens. The river Vltava, running through the city for a distance of 31 km through hills and valleys, enhances the beauty of the landscape.

Prague has a dynamic modern urban life and it is the cultural, political and economic centre of the country. Important congresses and social, political and cultural events of international importance take place here.

The cost of living in Prague is fairly low. Transportation, food shopping, dining and accommodation are still considerably cheaper compared to most West European capitals. Prague is a safe city with a highly efficient and well integrated public transport network.
