THIS YEAR WE ARE ORGANIZING the FOLLOWING SESSIONS
In the summer of 2024, 5 unique sessions will take place in 4 beautiful areas in the Czech Republic (Svatý Ján pod Skalou and Hostačov) and Slovakia (Turistický raj and Javorina).
INTERNATIONAL SESSION #D (ENGLISH LANGUAGE)
Sv. Jan pod Skalou (CZ) 11/8 – 18/8/2024
As per tradition, the international session will take place in sv. Jan pod Skalou about 20 km outside of Prague in the Czech Republic. The session’s programme as well as all courses are delivered in English, which in the past has allowed participants (students, tutors, as well as organisers) from all around the world to come together for a week.
Coordinators: Jana Lohrová, Majka Zelmanová & Sára Bánovská
Turistický ráj (SK) 21/7 – 27/7/2024
Session A is a classic Czecho-Slovak session, which will be taking place in Turistický ráj in Slovakia. This session will bring students a tried-and-tested, thought-through and well-rounded Discover programme. Session A welcomes any student: each will be able to find their own there. This session is taking place in Czech/Slovak.
Coordinators: Martina Kavanová & Eva Novotná
WHAT DOES THE ACCOMMODATION AT DISCOVER LOOK LIKE?
Sessions are taking place in one of 4 locations. In the Czech Republic, our venues are located in Svatý Jan pod Skalou and Hostačov. In Slovakia, our venues are Turistický raj and PT Javorina. All our venues have some phone signal, close access to nature and some sports facilities, such as outdoor fields or indoor courts. Meals are provided 5 times a day at all venues.
Accommodation is provided in a former Benedictine monastery, which is now a pedagogical college. Thanks to its age and strong walls, the monastery is pleasantly cool even in the summer, and all rooms, including classrooms and dining hall, are in very close proximity to one another. Participants are accommodated in multi-bedded rooms and shared sanitary facilities are located on each floor. Bedrooms and bathrooms are gender-segregated, and there are gender-neutral toilets. A few steps away from the main building is a large garden that belongs to the monastery, where you can relax, play various games or try slacklining. St. John’s Cliff towers over the whole area and offers a beautiful view of the surroundings. Not too far from the monastery lie the Nová Amerika quarry and Karlštejn Castle, where you can go on a trip.
