If you are hungry during lunchtime on working day, you may want to eat in one of the 11 Charles University canteens in Prague. The vast majority of local students eats there. The Czech word for student’s canteen is “menza”. Lunch is “oběd” and usually consists of soup and warm main meal.

As an exchange student at CU, you can borrow books from the Charles University libraries. There are some other libraries in Prague, which request registration and payment of a small yearly fee — such as the National Library of the CR, the National Technical Library and the Municipal Library of Prague.
