Home to the headquarters of the World Trade Organisation, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, and a branch of the United Nations, Geneva is one of Europe’s most globally-influential cities. Science students can visit the impressive Emosson Dam and learn about hydroelectric power generation or have a guided tour around CERN – the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.
Steeped in history and culture, Greece is a gold mine of educational opportunities for a wide variety of subject sectors – from Classics to Dance & Drama. Uncover the history of Athens; one of the oldest cities in the world. History and Classics students can explore UNESCO World Heritage Site: The Acropolis of Athens and visit The Archaeological Museum of Olympia, where they can learn about the birthplace of the Olympic Games and the history of the sanctuary of Zeus.
Krakow has been listed by UNESCO as one of the world’s 12 most historic sites. Krakow is a beautiful city that escaped the ravages of World War 2 with many monuments and buildings of architectural merit. Not to be missed is the medieval market square and the 16th Century Cloth Hall and the Old Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz, which is where Steven Spielberg’s ‘Schindler’s List’ was filmed. Furthermore, from Krakow you can visit the moving concentration camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau on a day excursion.
As a major European city, Prague is unique in remaining undamaged by two world wars and communist stagnation. The result is that you can now enjoy a sheer masterpiece of a city with a glorious architectural heritage. Stroll along the city’s cobbled streets and discover various historic gems – from Prague Castle to St. Vitus Cathedral.
Undoubtedly one of Europe’s most scenic cities, Salzburg was the setting for one of the world’s most beloved musicals ‘The Sound of Music’. Students can retrace the footsteps of the Von Trapp family and visit iconic landmarks on a guided tour of the city, stopping off at Mozart’s birthplace, cutting through the Salzach River and climbing to the top of Hohensalzburg Fortress to experience panoramic views of the city.
