Study/Travel in Scotland

Travel/Study Experience in Berlin, Prague & Vienna

This travel/study experience will expose individuals to several different European cultures - German, Austrian and Czech - their food, language, history. They can also share their experience with others, knowing that each one will have a different perspective, thus enriching their experience. Working with a group, making new connections and relationships, and also learning how a group can work effectively.


While Berlin was divided, Eastern and Western sections maintained separate opera houses and other institutions. Now the united city offers two of everything, and is known as a hub of European innovation, an historical and dynamic city.


Left virtually untouched by World War II bombing, Prague is one of Europe's most beautiful cities as you'll see during your tour visiting ancient castles and graceful bridges, and wandering medieval Old Town where you can enjoy street performers in the main square.


Discover the glory of the former Imperial capital, as you explore the Baroque facades and lively squares, the palaces and opera houses of this musical city in which Beethoven, Strauss and Mozart once composed.


Your European travel/study experience will include visits to the communities of Dresden, Terezin/Thereseinstadt and Brno.
