The Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové started its educational activities on November 25, 1945 as the first Charles University faculty in East Bohemia. Initially, the Hradec Králové faculty was established as a part of the Prague Faculty of Medicine.
- The Hradec city centre – the “Old Town” – is small and easily accessible, with many restaurants and bars on the square.
- There are two major shopping malls in the city; one of these also include a cinema where most films are shown in English.
- A few minutes’ drive outside the town is a lake with a beach where students go for swimming, sunbathing and barbecues in the spring.
- There is very little crime in Hradec and students feel safe when walking around the city, even at night.
Due to their co-operation and assistance it was immediately possible to establish both a high quality teaching staff and an effective departmental structure in Hradec Králové. For its entire existence, the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Kralove has been among the top Czech university institutions.
Life at Charles University Hradec, Hradec Králové
Hradec Králové is a charming town with approximately 100,000 inhabitants. Translated, “Hradec Kralove” means “the Queens Castle”, and the town is situated about one and a half hour train ride away from Prague. Students from HK (as it is known) regularly go into Prague for shopping and social events.
Hradec Králové University has a lot to offer. From its outstanding academic campus to its social and sporting events such as concerts, balls, carnivals, and competitions. The cost of living is also cheaper than in Prague.
