Subject: Czech republic
Have just returned today from 5 days in Prague. I took 20 students on a study tour and we had a wonderful trip. I arranged all of the programme through the Bridgwater-Czech-Slovak Friendship Society. This is based in the town where I teach but will help anyone with an interest in the former Czechoslovakia. The administrator Brian Smedley seems to know the answer to everything you could wish to ask. We met up with Czech students in Prague who accompanied us on our visits (which were all health and social care orientated). Visit the society's site at;

The weather was fabulous - cold but bright sunshine and all the students (who were mainly 17/18 year old females) felt very safe at all times (including 4am!). I cannot believe how cheap restaurants were - we had excellent meals.
