1. Human oriented work and life balance
What expacts especially like about Prague is its well-balanced work and life relationship. Prague’s natives know that the life is not only about working.
This has influence on overall working culture which permeates into philosophy of companies hiring expacts too. This is often a pleasant surprise for those used to work in U.S. or Asian countries.
2. Rich and vibrant cultural life
Since employees in Prague have time for their personal life, they can enjoy many museums, concerts, evening live music performances in various pubs, as well as numerous art shows.
A positive aspect is that many of these are alredy accessible for english speakers or are performed entirely in English!
3. Employers’ hunger
Prague, as is same for the whole Czech republic, has incredibly low unemployement rate. Recruiters are therefore offering higher-then-average salaries, pre-paid accommodation, or are assisting with the whole bureaucratic necessities for those willing to move to Prague and work here.
Whole range of international companies have their officies in here, so it is not even an issue if you don’t speak Czech in the beginning. You might not need to learn the local language, though, it can be appreciated by your employer.
4. The Czech nature
The Czechs are generally regarded as rather reserved and formal, however, once you break the „usual“ barier, you can learn how friendly and loyal your new Czech friends can be.
Usually one beer at the pub, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee can be enought for a Czech person to become your friend.
However, Czech people usually don’t fancy superficial relationships. Thus, should you discuss some deeper topics or have a mutual experience, you can create a warm life-lasting friendship.
5. Well-organized public services
Generally speaking, services provided by either a state or a local govermnent are efficient and widely accessible.
Even though you might experience a heavy bureaucratic workload within some state agencies, public transport, healthcare and public education are generally cheap, well mantained and accountable.
