Drama in Prague
Prague is a compact city with incredible architecture and monuments reflecting its rich cultural history dating back to the middle ages.
The capital of Czech Republic since the end of World War I, Prague occupies a metropolitan location situated on both sides of the Vltava River. Pavilion Performing Arts groups are generally accommodated in central accommodation where Prague's attractions and the workshop spaces are accessible by foot, on your coach or by using the efficient public transport system. The weather tends to be at its best April to September and can be very cold in the winter months.
Wider curriculum links: Offering excellent facilities alongside the enriched culture, history and architecture spanning several eras, Prague communicates a natural link between Drama, the Arts and other curriculum areas, including History and Geography.
