The Czech Republic is located in Central Europe. It is surrounded by Germany to the northwest, Poland to the northeast, Slovakia to the southeast and Austria to the south. It has no coastline. The Czech Republic consists of three main parts: Czech Lands (or Bohemia) to the west, Moravia to the southeast and Silesia to the northeast. The capital, Prague, is located slightly to the northwest. The Technical University in Liberec is about 100 kilometres to the north of Prague.

There is perhaps only one place in the world where it takes only 15 minutes by tram to transport yourself from a natural ski resort to a magnificent, traditional theatre. A city where it takes just a few moments to swap a unique mountain hotel for a tropical glasshouse filled with orchids. A city that gave the world one of the most famous car constructors in history. A city on the outskirts of which a traditional crosscountry skiing race is held, one of the biggest in Europe. This is Liberec, our town.

In November 2019, a score for economic studies was published. The Faculty of Economics has ranked 501+.

The programme of the Welcome Days planned for the particular semester is available in advance on the website. The ESN Club members always prepare numerous exciting activities to make their new friends feel at home in Liberec.

Erasmus Student Network (ESN) ESN Liberec is a non-profit student organization at the Technical University of Liberec. ESN Liberec is part of Europe’s largest student organization, the Erasmus Student Network. ESN aims to enrich the local culture with the help of foreign students and, at the same time, make the stay of foreign students in the country more pleasant. It seeks to provide opportunities for cultural understanding and personal development on the principle of SHS - Students Helping Students.

The active team includes 20 students, and the buddy program consists of 50 Czech buddies. A key project of ESN Liberec is the buddy program. In this project, Czech students choose a foreign student and become his/her „buddy“. In the first days after the arrival of foreign students, they act as support and lend a helping hand. They help the foreign student to settle in the dormitory accommodation and also arrange other necessary documents. http://liberec.esn-cz.cz/erasmus-students

The organisation in Liberec was founded in 2008. In 2011, it became an official member of the Erasmus Student Network.

Liberec Top Attractions Liberec, in the Northern Bohemian region not far from the borders with Poland and Germany, is a place that will nourish both body and mind. The city is on the fringe of the Jizera Mountains, with a bowl of soaring peaks and evergreen mountainsides all around. In winter Liberec is a prime snow sport destination and a fixture on

the ski jumping circuit, while in summer the opportunities for outdoor adventure are almost endless. Inside Liberec there’s a wealth of things to do for ages, but the city’s strong point is its “edutainment” attractions that everybody is sure to adore.

Ještěd It doesn’t matter where you are in the city, you’ll be able to spot a strange space-age building atop the city’s highest peak. This icon for Liberec is a combined television tower, hotel and restaurant dating to 1966. The structure is a hyperboloid, a kind of upside-down cone that was designed to enhance the outline of the

mountain. Go in for a closer look by road or via the cable-car at Horní Hanychov. If you’re up for the hike you could also walk the mountain trail, and at the peak you’ll be able to savour a view that extends out over most of Northern Bohemia as well as parts of Germany and Poland.

Town Hall Standing proud on Edvard Benes Square, this grand and intricately-decorated building is another symbol for Liberec and a reminder of the city’s Austro-Hungarian past. It was designed by the Viennese architect Franz Neumann in the alpine renaissance style at the end of the

19th century, and bears a striking resemblance to Vienna’s own town hall. The stained-glass windows are exceptionally complex, while the narrow ceremonial tower rises 62 metres above the square.

Liberec Zoo This animal attraction is the oldest in the country, but that isn’t to say that its standards are outdated. More than 130 species are kept in 13 spacious hectares of landscaped enclosures. Liberec Zoo has full European accreditation and takes part reintroduction programs for birds of prey. The big story for guests is the park’s numerous wild cats, among which are white Bengal tigers (the only ones to be found in the Czech Republic), lions, snow leopards and lynxes.

Botanical Garden Quieter than its neighbour the zoo, Liberec’s Botanical Garden is the senior attraction of the two, dating back 120 years. There are nine elegant metal and glass pavilions here sustaining a range of habitats. One pavilion that is sure to draw the curious is the fearsome display of carnivorous plants. Elsewhere there’s

a giant corpse plant, Europe’s oldest bonsai tree, which was present at the garden’s inception in 1882, and a wonderful collection of orchids from around the world. Two of the pavilions also boast aquariums, and include an underwater walkway where tropical fish swim over visitors’ heads.

Museum of North Bohemia Liberec has a long tradition for textile manufacturing, to the point where the city has been dubbed the “Manchester of Bohemia”. At this museum you can get to grips with this aspect of the city’s heritage and see models of traditional weaving workshops. There are interesting displays of local textiles and

tapestries, as well as decorative items such as furniture, glassware, jewellery, clocks, woodcarvings and ceramics. Other exhibits are devoted to the natural history and archaeology of Liberec and its surrounding region. Take time to admire the museum building, a lovely neogothic structure from the late-1800s.

Regional Art Gallery This fascinating cultural attraction includes permanent collections covering contemporary and 20th-century Czech art, 19th-century French impressionism, romantic German and Austrian works from the 1800s and Golden Age Dutch Paintings. Permanent exhibitions are combined with expertly-curated temporary

shows, that have included a huge range of topics, among them every phase of Czech art and design, as well numerous foreign movements, such as British 18th-century lithography. It’s well worth an afternoon of your time, whether you’re an art-lover or art-curious!


iQLANDIA Curious minds of all ages will adore this science centre where hundreds of interactive exhibits and hands-on experiments are at your fingertips. Educational entertainment is the name of the game at iQLANDIA, so you’ll be able to meet the Czech Republic’s first even humanoid robot or undergo authentic space training. You can also

suit-up and experience a simulated firestorm. Part of the same complex is iPARK, which is where little ones can get some answers to their big questions, and the Planetarium, where you can attend live screenings of the night sky, or watch HD movies about the cosmos and the natural world.

Babylon Centre The Babylon Centre is an entertainment, commercial and hotel complex under the roof of a regenerated textile factory. At more than 25,000 m2 it’s the largest attraction of its kind in the Czech Republic, and behind its doors is something for all comers. The littlest visitors can bounce around in soft play areas or zoom about

on traditional fairground rides. Teenagers and adults can try their hands at laser tag or bowling, and people of all ages can make a splash at the Aquapark with its themed pools and slides. If all that sounds like too much action, then book some “me-time” at the Wellness Centre for a bit of pampering and relaxation.

Bits and Pieces of Liberec Summer in Liberec From spring to autumn you’re free to set off into the glorious upland scenery that surrounds Liberec. The Jizera Mountains are to the northeast, and their soaring peaks and thick cloak of dark-green pine forest are almost Nordic in appearance. The warmer months are the time to pack your backpack and join a trail,

and paths marked in red are the longest or most challenging, often weaving along a mountain ridge. West of Liberec, straddling the German border, are the Lusatian Mountains. The peaks are smaller and the landscape is less forbidding, but the scenery is equally romantic, with rolling pasture dotted with farms and quaint villages.

Winter in Liberec When the snow starts to fall Liberec straps on its winter gear and welcomes high-profile competition. Every January the Ski Jumping World Cup comes to town, while in 2009 the prestigious FIS Nordic World Ski Championships were hosted by the city. If you’re a hockey fan then autumn to spring is when you can cheer on the local team, the Liberec Tigers, as they take to the ice in the Czech Extraliga.

If you want your own taste of the action then the picturesque village of Bedřichov is your gateway for downhill skiing and snowboarding, as well as more than 100 kilometres of crosscountry ski trails.


Average Weather in Liberec Liberec is part of the Czech Republic which mostly has a temperate continental climate and thus, has lower average temperatures throughout the year. The summers in Liberec are comfortable; the winters are freezing, dry, and windy; and it is partly cloudy year round.
