Personal recommendation
On the CESP there were not much work to do. If you are interested mainly for academic skills go somewhere else. If you are interested generally to have a great experience in your life go to Prague.

Final comments
There are a lot of opportunities (and cheap) to travel within Czech Rep. or abroad. The best and most fun way is to get together with other students that you will meet. Do not ever take a taxi from the street because they will rip you off. Prefer to call certain companies or prearrange the price.
