About the Location

Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” Prague is best known for its breathtaking architecture, including colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches, and a medieval Astronomical Clock.  The capital city is full of culture and beauty, including the iconic Charles Bridge and the bustling Old Town Square. Choristers can soak in views of the Vltava River and grab local fare at a classic Czech tavern.

BCI choristers will be residing at the Hotel International, located in the Prague-Dejvice district, just a quick tram ride away from the major sites. When not exploring the city, choristers will be busy rehearsing Stabat Mater, a piece originally premiered in Prague in 1880 by Czech composer Dvořák.
