Assignment in Prague

Today I would like to discuss Prague in Czech Republic. If you were to be sent to Prague on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to experience weather that is temperate with cool summers and cold, cloudy, humid winters. You will meet people who speak Czech.

The cost of clothing and housing is high. The cost of food and beverages is very low. The cost of transport is low. Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. Prague's economy is based on various industrial sectors. Prague's industrial sector is split into aircraft engines, diesel engines, refined oil products, electronics, chemicals, food, printing, automobiles etc. Also a significant proportion of research and development is based in Prague. Approximately one-fifth of all investment in the Czech Republic takes place in Prague city.

From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience some hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living. If you live in Prague or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in Prague again?
