A local branch of ESN. Its members assist incoming international students from the very beginning, even before their arrival in Olomouc. They offer buddy system, organize sport and cultural activities, special events, involve foreign students in a variety of activities connected with Czech society and culture in order to get them familiar with Czech people and their way of life.

Palacký University Christian Fellowship (PUCF)
We are international students who meet together in small groups to read and study the Bible each week at venues including Faculty Hospital (Fakultní nemocnice), the dorms at Neředín and in the town centre. We plan to host events during the year, including talks on medical ethics (looking at ethical debates currently in the news and the Christian perspective). Social events might include movie nights, concerts, picnics and day trips outside of Olomouc. If you would like to join us, or are interested in meeting up to find out more about what the Bible teaches, please contact us - we would love to hear from you. Please 'like' our Facebook page to receive information about events that we host.
