Overall
I wish I had known...
I hadn't any problem, but some friends of mine had because we hadn't been properly warned of pickpockets and so.

No other thing, but go... but keep secret, we don't want the quiet city of Ostrava invaded by hordes of tourists, do we?

You might find it hard to travel around, not because there's no access to transports (in the train station you have trains leaving to everywhere from Germany to Moscow), but because you'll find it hard to leave this worderfull town. But Ostrava is close to so many places worth visit that it's almost a shame if you don't. Beware of pickpockets and car thieves. Two friends of mine lost a wallet with almost 100 Euros (100 USDollars) and the car radio in the very first day because they where not properly warned. Also be careful about your jackets and so in night spots. But it's not a dangerous place, and if you take a bit of care it will be a fine experience.

3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Apartments in the city where, and I had not been informed about this until I was close to return to Portugal, cheaper than the University residence, if rented by 3 or 4 students

Although it wasn't bad and it was quite cheap, from the information I had got from the host university I was expecting better. For instance, they gave us option to have a single room and when we arrived these rooms did not exist.

The level of education was high. It was different from the education in Russia. I havent been 2 any other European Universities so I cant compair. But 4 me it was the one where I felt like studying longer.

Personal spending habits
Food was cheaper in Ostrava than in Moscow so I was eating out more often than at home, so I spent more or less the same amount of money. As to the phone, I didnt use it that much - my parents and friends were calling me. As to the housing, I didnt pay anything 4 it - it was my University. Nightlife, ok, Stodolni Street was very demanding sometimes, there were times when I spent amounts of money that I wouldnt dare 2 spend at home! I travelled a lot - I had time, at home I dont have time, so I dont travel, its obvious that I spent more than I do at home. But on the whole it turned out 2 b the same money that I usually spend in Moscow.

Food and accomodation is clearly cheaper (for food, especcially in restaurants). Travelling refers almost just to the going and return home. Telephone refers to international calls, calling home
