Weather and Clothing

July and August are summertime in Prague; the average daily temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius, but it’s not uncommon to experience temperatures of 10 degrees less or 10 degrees more.

You will need summer clothes, sunscreen, sunglasses and an umbrella. It’s a good idea to also pack a few pieces of warmer clothing – long trousers, a sweater or a sweatshirt. There’s a washing machine at the Kajetánka dormitory.

More formal clothing

The programme includes concerts, an official reception at the town hall and an opening and closing ceremony in the university’s historical premises, which in the Czech Republic implies more formal clothing, such as a summer dress for the ladies or a shirt and long trousers for men.


It’s a good idea to pack a pair of comfortable shoes, such as athletic shoes, ideally waterproof in case there’s a rainy week. And some advice for the ladies: the university is located in the historical centre of Prague where there are old paving stones everywhere, so high-heeled shoes are rather impractical and the heels tend to break quite often.
