PROGRAM
 
Students in Central EuropeTHE BEST OF CENTRAL EUROPE 

This year, we are travelling to Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and the Balkans.  Our itinerary will include visits to Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Trieste, Slovenia, Croatia and Boznia. We will visit Prague, Bratislava, Cesky Krumlov, Graz, Ljubjana, Trogir/Split, Zagreb and Sarajevo. We will also have city tours and excursions to castles, historic cathedrals, and a visit to a coffee plantation/factory, the Plitvice Lakes and much more!
 
This is one of the most popular short-term study abroad programs at Belmont, so much so that some students have repeated the trip three times and we anticipate that this trip will be sold out in a short period of time.
 
We will depart Nashville on May 3 and return on May 28.  Limited financial assistance is also available. A maximum of 24 students may go on the trip, so if you are interested, don’t delay and contact Dr. Ted Wylie at ted.wylie@belmont.edu to reserve your spot.
 
Come join a grand tradition.  We promise you will not be disappointed!
