Charles University in Prague - 660 years of existence08.04.08 09:42
This year the Charles University, the oldest university of Central Europe celebrates the 660th year from its establishment. It was founded by king IV. Charles on 7 April 1348 as a "first university (studium generale) to the north of the Alps and to the east of Paris". The university consisted then of four faculties: faculty of arts, faculty of law, faculty of theology and faculty of medicine. Today, after its interesting history and development (which brought many times conflicts with the actual retardant political regime) the university contains 17 faculties (3 outside Prague) and is still the main university of the Czech Republic.
The university prepared many programmes for this significant event - both for students, teachers and publicity.
