    Living in Czech Republic as an Expat: Basic Things You Need to Know

    With an increasingly multicultural population, the Czech Republic now has approximately half a million foreigners living within its borders.

    Expats working in the Czech Republic have everything they could ever want in terms of working abroad. The country comes 1st out of 65 destinations in the Working Abroad Index, and expats are particularly satisfied with their job and career, as well as work-life balance.

    The crime rate in the country is very low. Czech Republic is in the list of 15 most peaceful countries in the world. In terms of ecology and cleanliness, the country ranks 6th in the world. It has excellent water and food quality and a healthy environment, so its health indicators are always good.

    Living costs in the Czech Republic are considered to be affordable. The average living costs range from 350 to 750 USD per month, including meals, accommodation, public transport and culture. Of course, prices may vary according to your location, accommodation choices, lifestyle, and spending habits.

    However, Czech is commonly ranked as one of the most complicated languages for English-speakers to learn. Czech is a Slavic language, and it has some unique rules that make learning it a memorization-intensive process.

    When it comes to accomodation, Expats in the Czech Republic tend to rent rather than buy property. This is mainly because non-EU citizens without a resident permit for the Czech Republic (or another EU country) are excluded from purchasing property.
