About Us

The Prague Wanderer, launched March 9, 2007, is a Webzine dedicated to showcasing the writing of students attending New York University in Prague. The articles featured on our site were written for one of several journalism classes at NYU in Prague or solicited from the student body by The Prague Wanderer Team. We write “Team” because that is how we work, as a voluntary team of interns and a journalism instructor juggling classes, travel and taking in the wonders of the Czech capital and Central Europe. 

Students are here for only one semester, two at the most, before returning to New York University in or another university they are attending in the United States.

The writing in The Prague Wanderer is meant to reflect the students’ best attempts to chronicle their time abroad and to reflect on aspects of Czech and European life that have piqued their interest.

A respect for difference and an understanding that foreign guests have an obligation to challenge their prejudices by seeing the world through the eyes of others is a core criterion when evaluating submissions. Happy wandering!
