The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe and surrounded by Poland to the north, Slovakia to the east, Austria to the south, and Germany to the west. The Czech Republic is a member state of the European Union (since 2004), NATO and it is a part of the borderless Schengen Area. The population of the Czech Republic is over 10 million people.
The Czech Republic has developed an advanced social market economy and social policies that support a high-income welfare state.

Participant testimonial

"I really enjoyed my time during the International week held at Mendel University.  It really looked like the organization of the event was planned accordingly, on a high level. The communication from the organization team was good. The program of the International Week itself was rich on the events like workshops,lectures, field trips, etc. The organization team made sure that every guest felt welcomed.

I think the event provided a great opportunity to strengthen collaboration between Mendel University and KFU and also build relationships with those universities that also participated in the International Week. At the GoAbroad Fair we could learn about each other, exchange university leaflets and business cards.

At the Farewell Dinner we had another chance to learn about each other and enjoy each other's company in a non - formal setting. It was a wonderful time in a beautiful place with great food and atmosphere.

I just want to thank all colleagues at the Mendel University for organizing such a great and useful event. "
