CU Point – Services and information in one place

Dear International Students,

Spring is coming as well as the time to enjoy our upcoming events and webinars in April  – we hope to see you there! You will, for example, have a chance to focus on your mental health, learn about the history of Charles University, or join our running training, which will come in handy for spring! And why not get our stylish university socks to go with it?

In case of any questions regarding our events or study-related queries, do not hesitate to contact us at or by phone (+420 224 491 850) – CU Point is here to guide you.

Charles University continues to offer help to its Ukrainian students, academics, and families. For more information, see here. Further, our university has set up a fund (for English scroll down) to help those affected. We are grateful for any help and financial contribution.

We wish you a calm and wonderful Easter time!

Czech Easter Traditions

Will you be spending Easter in the Czech Republic? Many Czech Easter symbols are related to spring and the beginning of new life. Traditionally, you can see the colourful hand-painted and decorated eggs (kraslice) or decorations with baby animals such as chicken, bunny or lamb. Many Czech families eat nádivka (stuffing with spinach and other herbs). The delicious baked Easter bun mazanec or lamb-shaped cake beránek is served for dessert. Did you know that if a girl is whipped with fresh braided willow rods (pomlázka), it will bring her health and youth? Happy Easter and Veselé Velikonoce!
