#3: International night at Charles University

Do you want to meet people from different countries; quizzes about these countries and the Czech Republic? You can either prepare some information about your country and bring something typical that represents it (photos, souvenirs, national dish…), participate in competitions (prizes to be won!), or just enjoy the chance to meet new people.
