Ideal participant
WANTED: Adventure seeking, open-minded AEGEE member with team spirit who is not afraid of building and sleeping in tents! We are looking for someone who is able to sleep for a few hours and be ready to participate in all activities with full energy and does not let that enthusiasm go. We want an energetic person that is willing to enjoy as much as possible while exploring the Czech Republic. Did we just describe you? That can only mean one thing! This SU is the one for you!

Event description
The Czech Republic is the Heart of Europe. Although the Heart is young and celebrating its 20th anniversary, our unique culture has been refined over the centuries and we are now ready to share it with you to touch your hearts!

For 12 days, 24 of you can participate in more than 36 activities while continuously multiplying your knowledge and experience about the Czech Republic. The most breathtaking and charming places from within and around Prague will be reflected in your eyes. The challenging and exciting program will end up safely in your minds as an unforgettable memory. The Czech way of life will stay firmly in your hearts.

Be prepared to stay active all day and night – nobody will stay still for a single minute. Canoeing down the Sázava river, sleeping in tents in a haunted campsite, discovering unexplored places while treasure hunting, competing in our sports tournaments, having fun at theme parties and so much more fun activities are waiting for you!
Our traditions are waiting to be explored by you. You can learn how to dance polka, the typical Czech dance, learn how to do things the Czech way and even get to know some of our unique Easter traditions (spanking some girls on the butt is allowed on Easter)! While visiting the famous Pilsen brewery, you can make bartenders’ hearts melt when you say: "Jedno pivo, prosím,“ like the locals.

To keep you safe, there will be an official first aid course to help you cope with the heart attack you might get from sheer excitement. What better place than the Heart of Europe could you experience the nearing of climax when in the last second your heart stops just to start beating faster than it ever has before? But do not worry, every single one of you will survive and definitely enjoy it!

If your heart has just started beating faster and you are ready to take home some unforgettable experiences, loads of memories of the twelve most amazing days of your summer and the true AEGEE spirit, this is definitely the place where you should spend your summer.
