Study at Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic
Located in the heart of Moravia, Olomouc is known for its charm. According to myCzechRepublic.com, "With around 100,000 inhabitants, it's the fifth largest city in the Czech Republic and certainly one of the most beautiful. The centre is the largest historic preservation zone outside Prague, and its cobblestoned streets are lined with majestic cathedrals and grand palaces...Olomouc has always been a centre for education and culture and the rich schedule of festivals means that you stand a good chance of one being in progress, no matter what time of year your visit occurs...Despite its fascinating history and great beauty, you won't find the crowds of tourists that are so common in more famous destinations. It's a real living, breathing Czech city, with 1000 years of history and the vibrant, youthful energy of a university town."
