All first year students go to the university chateau at Kostelec nad Cernymi lesy for one week. All the classes from Prague are moved there. The attendance at the classes are mandatory. The Kostelec visit is designed as a team building event. There are organised classes, an excursion of the University Forest Establishment, a concert at the chateau`s chapel, and other social activities. The bus departs to Kostelec from outside CULS Menza on Monday at 8:00. The weather in the Czech Republic is usually getting cooler in October, and the chateau premises are difficult to keep as warm as the CULS dormitories, so please be prepared for these conditions. The excursion to the University Forest Establishment (saw mill, fish ponds, ornamental tree nursery) is organised on Monday so be dressed accordingly (warm clothes, proper shoes). All students are accommodated in the chateau. Breakfasts and lunches are served at the chateau. It is possible to use a cooker and there is also very limited supply of cutlery and pots to prepare evening meals. There are several pubs and restaurants in the town. There will be food and drinks available on Monday`s social evening banquet. Students make their own way back to Prague at the end of the event. 

The fee for the stay is 500,-CZK. There is also needed to pay refundable deposit at the amount of 500,-CZK which will be returned to the students after check-out. You should make the payment by 23 October at Dr Vylupeks office D227.

We hope that you are going to enjoy your stay at Kostelec with our staff.
