    I think there are some minor differences between the curricula. You can check it out here:

    2nd faculty of Medicine curricula:
    Study - 2nd Faculty of Medicine

    Faculty of Medicine, Hradec Kralove curricula:
    Faculty of Medicine - Study - Undergraduate Study - Study information

    I have friends at both faculties and it really depends on what kind of an area are you looking for or the kind of people you want to hang out with.

    2nd faculty has a large group of British and Portuguese students and quite a few arabs. Faculty of Medicine at Hradec Kralove has tons and tons of British students (mostly British Indians), Indians, Norwegians and Malaysians.

    Both faculties are quite good. Hradec Kralove is a very very small city so it can get very boring once you're used to it. They do have a few clubs here and there but the city is usually empty by the night time (Except for the med students).

    Prague on the other hand, is entirely different. The 2nd one is located in Prague (in the outskirts) which is still nice as it's in the Motol Hospital which has been ranked in the top 15 in Europe. It's quite an awesome hospital with all facilities (including a few helicopters for transfusions and stuff). Even the HK hospital is quite awesome because it's just as huge as Motol and has quite good facilities.

    So the main difference is the quality of life. The quality of life in Praha is definitely a lot better but it comes at a price (getting an apartment isn't all that easy but since 2nd faculty is in the outskirts, you can find tons of apartments which are cheap...there are also 2 student dorms which are very close by). The quality of life in HK is ok, but that's about it. I don't think it gets any better (from what my friends tell me). Living expeses are a lot cheaper than in Praha.
