What to pack

Together with some previous Erasmus students, we made a list of things you should not forget to take with you. There is a PDF copy you can download at the bottom of this page.

  • an internet cable and a switch (there is none to borrow in the dormitory and no wifi)
  • warm clothes for winter (the average temperature in January is -3°C, but can also reach -12°C)
  • a webcam for skyping (calling from Czech to other countries may be expensive)
  • a window cover for sleeping (there're no blinds on the windows in dorms, only plastic jalousie)
  • a pair of comfortable shoes for traveling and for stone pavement in Olomouc
  • some essential medicaments (it is easy to catch cold in winter)
  • Czech dictionary
  • maybe an extra phone for a Czech simcard (we will sell some simcards during Orientation week for the same price like in the shop)
  • a bottle opener
  • a shopping backpack (there is a Globus shopping center 15 minutes away from dorms, but no tram or bus going there)
  • a camera
  • a swimsuit and flipflops if you wish (trust us, there are also hot days in September and June)
  • a padlock for locking your backpack/luggage in case you will travel and stay in hostels
