Is it impossible for you to return home for Christmas and thus you are spending it in Prague? In ISC we realize that no-one wants to be alone during this festive time and as we believe in the saying “the more the merrier,” we would like to invite you to spend a proper Czech Christmas evening with us.
You can look forward to tasting a traditional Czech Christmas dinner - a potato salad with a schnitzel, together with some delicious specialities such as Czech Christmas candy or a hot punch. And of course, it would not be Christmas without any Christmas presents! Since Ježíšek (Little baby Jesus, who gives presents in the Czech Republic) is too busy this year, we would appreciate if everyone brought a small gift (around 50 CZK) and later we can all enjoy giving them randomly to each other.
Instead of feeling lonely or homesick, come to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere in the company of your international family. Not only will you have fun, but you can discover what seeing a golden pig and some other Czech Christmas customs mean and in return, you can share some of the customs of your country with us. In the end we will take a relaxing walk around Prague, which is simply magical during Christmas.
So do not hesitate and come to the ISC Office to register yourselves as soon as possible. The price is only 80 CZK and you can register till December 19th, 8 pm. During the registration please state whether you prefer a schnitzel made of pork, chicken or tofu.
Šťastné a Veselé! :]
OUR VISION is to create an international community at the Czech Technical University in Prague. We want to integrate exchange students into life in the Czech Republic and into events at our university. We create surroundings where different cultures meet and foreign and Czech students get to know each other.
We support the active involvement of our members, their self-realization and personal development in a creative environment where there is a friendly and open atmosphere.
In this way we contribute to understanding, friendship and cooperation among the nations in Europe and throughout the world.
I have a lot of good memories of the Czech Technical University (CTU), but the first thing I have to emphasize is the International Student Club (ISC). Due to the nice and friendly atmosphere I could feel since the beginning.
I decided to help them with the organization of some activities like the orientation week, language meetings, sport events or trips. I’ve also been teaching my Spanish language to other students!
It has been an unbelievable experience for me that I recommend to every Erasmus student for sure!

Joining ISC CTU in Prague allowed me many things. At the beginning of the semester, it helped me with getting to know new people from all over the world. I started learning German (with a very nice teacher) in the Masarykova dormitory, I discovered lots of new places in Prague by attending the Café Lingea meetings, where my language skills were tested, and I learned to play voleyball.
I still keep many friends who I have visited/hosted after my Erasmus. That's one of the things I am most proud of – to be able to keep these friendships through time.
My advice for those starting an Erasmus is clear: Join ISC as soon as you get there, you won't regret it.
