About the country

Location of the place

Lisbon,Portugal. Accomadation next to metro station Alameda,
working place at Paco D Arcos, I had to take subway then train then bus ,around 1 hour and 10 minutes.


Nice, historical place, perfect picture of pastels and palaces, interesting architecture and monuments, multi-culti melody of mosaics and monasteries, port, good transportation, nice communicative people.

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Arrabida mountains, Sintra (3 nice castels), Belem (Belem tower,museums), Porto, Coimbra, Algarve, Praga




Work description

Customers and sales department

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

750 euro + 5 euro for launch

Language requirements

English language

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

accomadation was good, room in the appartment of 8 rooms with other 7 students, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, washing machine, oven, microwave, TV in each room, and possibility to connect internet, 210 Euro per month including charges , accomadation provided by IAESTE, close to metro station, a bit far from work, but close to downtown.

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

In airport one member of IAESTE was waiting me, took me by car to appartment. IAESTE PT organized a trip to Arrabida in the third week of my stay there, trainees from all over the Portugal came to this trip.

Meeting other foreign students

I met alot of new friends(IAESTE trainees and Erasmus students) with which we went out, and organized trips to other cities of Portugal, I keep in touch with them.

Sport and culture

Swimming and tourism. Huge shore side close to Lisbon (Cascais, Estoriel, Carcavelas), hot weather around 30-40 degrees, very nice on the beach. In Cascais it is possible to take bicycles for free and ride around the city. There is a possibility to learn how to dive in diving school, around 20 Euro per lesson.

Food, local specialties

There was a restaurant next to work (around 5-7 Euro). There were few supermarkets next to appartment, the prices are a bit higher than in CZ, but the sea food is cheap. During the trip to Arrabida mountains we tried the Portugees cuisine (sea food).

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

You can easily use all types of comunications. At work I had my own pc, connected to internet. I bought a TMN sim card for my mobile (costed 30 Euro with the amount of 30 Euro credit), to call to CZ it was around 0.5 Euro per minute. To call from CZ: cheap to call to fixed phone.

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

good knowledge of english language, first month take money with you to pay for accomadation and transportation (40 Euro), because the salary is payed by the end of the month

What not to forget with you

Camera and full swiming bag.

Benefits of the internship

The topic of my diploma thesis in CZ is similar to the work which I have done during the training period. Working in a team was very interesting. I start to be more responsible.

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

IAESTE PT organized one trip to Arrabida for all the trainees, when I had troubles with the accomodation, IAESTE helped me to find other one very fast.

Overall experience with IAESTE

Excellent. It was a very good experience for me, I enjoyed all the 2,5 months which I stayed there. The training was good and usefull, not complicated. The country is nice so as people, it was very interesting to face a new culture, traditions, to know alot of new people and make new friends.
