“It is mainly a student-led student-run ministry for the homeless and needy people living in the centre of Prague.
The shortcut stands for You Are Not Alone. We are here to distribute food and other resources (e.g. gloves and hats during winter) to those who need it as well as to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. We also offer prayers on the street. Our vision is to reach out to those in need, show them compassion and tell them about God’s love.”

The chilling wind is gone, flowers start to bloom and trees turn a shade of green, pink, or yellow. Slippers and sneakers instead of boots. People sitting in the park for one whole hour or two. Time to stroll around the city that is.
That’s spring in Prague.
Although it feels as hot as a summer sometimes, and it might be moody ,rainy and chilly for a change just when you start hiding all your jackets.

The outdoor never felt as attractive as it was during the times when I had to stay either in my room or in the library studying. I’ve always thought the national library has a really strategic location, for me personally, because it’s situated right next to the famous Charles’ Bridge, and the Prague castle is clearly visible on the other side of the river! It has always been a very refreshing sight to see this beautiful scenery when I step out of the library after a long day with books. Needless to say, a good walk along the tranquil river was a good way to start a day before I dived into the world of revision!
