Leisure tips

This is us... and who are you?

Musical tunes and a thousand languages reverberate through the air at Prora Youth Hostel. Tolerance and respect, imagination and creativity, joy in movement and curiosity about a country and its people are commonplace at our Hostel. Youths and their cliques, athletes, school classes, lonely "trampers" and committed singles, happy couples, families with children - all have plenty of stories to tell. They all enjoy the sea, beach and life. And yet still remain true to themselves. Some go bathing or cycling, others prefer to quench their thirst for knowledge in a museum. Others prefer to go and explore the beauty of nature or dive headlong into the programme of activities. Yet others prefer to go and explore the whole island or speak to interesting-looking passersby along the way. And when the holiday comes to an end, many a friendship has just been forged.
