Airfare, hotel, and meals are not included and are the student's responsibility.
ACCOMMODATIONS AND MEALS
Students are responsible for booking their own hotel accommodations. We strongly suggest booking a room at the nearby Hotel Marketa, which is a short walking distance from the school. Sharing rooms decreases the cost considerably. All participants must find lodging within a half mile from the location of the school. There are several other hotels and Airbnb options in the area.
Hotel Marketa offers a special long-stay rate that includes breakfast (last year's rate was around $45 USD/night). All other meals are at the student's expense. There is a grocery store close to the hotel and school, and several affordable restaurants nearby.
For students staying at the Hotel Marketa, transportation from the airport can be arranged through the hotel with advance notice. It is the responsibility of the student to make this arrangement with the hotel prior to arrival.
Excursions after July 20 can be arranged through Ecce Prague, a company specializing in educational trips for students. Interested students should contact the Festival at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15.
