Palacký University, Olomouc is the oldest university in Moravia and the second-oldest in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1573 as a public university led by the Jesuit order in Olomouc, which was at that time the capital of Moravia and the seat of the episcopacy. At first it taught only theology, but soon the fields of philosophy, law and medicine were added.

After the Bohemian King Joseph II's reforms in the 1770s the university became increasingly state-directed, while today it is a public university. During the Revolution of 1848 university students and professors played a very active role on the side of democratisation. The conservative king Francis Joseph I closed most of its faculties during the 1850s, but they were reopened by an act of the Interim National Assembly passed on 21 February 1946. This act also extended the name from University of Olomouc to Palacký University, Olomouc, naming it for František Palacký, a 19th-century Moravian historian and politician.

Today the university is an example of an old university in a small town, like Yale University in New Haven and the University of Tübingen in Tübingen. The town of Olomouc has 100,000 inhabitants (and as many again in its suburbs), and some 25,000 university students (including those at Moravian College Olomouc), which is the highest density of university students in Central Europe. The town itself is very old and picturesque and it is surrounded by sports facilities and nature.

Many distinguished figures have taught, worked and studied here including Albrecht von Wallenstein and Gregor Mendel.

The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (Czech: Akademie múzických umění v Praze) is a university level school of music, dance, drama, film, TV and multi-media studies.

It is the Czech Republic’s largest arts school. With more than 350 pedagogues and researchers as well as 1500 students, AMU has extensive scholarly potential in numerous disciplines of theatre, film and music, some of which are not offered by any other school in Europe. The instruction is provided by top artistic professionals active in the most prestigious theatres, in film and television, musical virtuosos and other prominent members of the Czech cultural and intellectual scene. The school’s added value is that all faculties are located in the very heart of Prague – a cultural metropolis with a one-thousand-year tradition and a unique offering of live art, to which AMU contributes through its artistic activities.

Often an acronym "AMU" is used referring to the Czech name of the school "Akademie múzických umění".

AMU is a highly selective school with a multi-round admissions process; on average, every tenth applicant is admitted. Instruction takes place in small study groups which guarantee an individual approach and a relationship of partnership between students and teachers. In addition to Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, AMU also offers several doctoral programmes. The focus of AMU’s scientific activity is the area of artistic research, although specialized departments also pursue classic research in art history and theory. AMU students have access to high-quality faculty libraries with more than 180 000 volumes of scholarly literature, sound recordings and audio-visual works, and their creative activities are supported by specialised professional-level facilities (theatres, film and television studios, concert halls). AMU’s two cross-faculty pedagogical facilities are its Languages Centre and its Sports, Rehabilitation and Movement Centre. All three faculties are served by AMU Press (NAMU), which publishes literature focusing on all of AMU’s artistic disciplines, ranging from lecture notes and e-books to graphically demanding publications. The final projects of students studying disciplines with a significant graphic component are presented in the AMU Gallery (GAMU), where one-off thematic exhibitions are also held. AMU has its own accommodation centre in the very centre of Prague near Prague Castle. It also has a student dormitory in Old Town with special amenities for students studying music disciplines. Concentrated multi-day creative work is possible at two dedicated facilities outside Prague.
