Last updated on: Nov 14, 2018

Summary: Digital nomads are drawn to Prague for a wide variety of reasons: cost of living, nightlife, food and beer. This is a primer that will be continuously updated.

Living Abroad - Digital Nomads in Prague, Czech Republic

Digital Nomads gravitate to Prague due to the moderate costs and the historic nature of the beautiful city. There is also a lot to do for the growing population of digital nomads for varying levels of income brackets.

As with other popular destinations in Europe, Prague gets quite busy in July and August, so if the summer rush isn't for you, plan accordingly!

One expat living in Prague reported "Once you have friends, they are wonderful friends... Magical architecture, beautiful countryside, Prague has excellent, inexpensive public transportation."

An article on Forbes.com about the Best Places For Digital Nomads rated Prague as the best in the world due to it's "excellent transportation, a vibrant cultural scene and a relatively low cost of living."

As far as the importance of knowing the language in Prague, an expat wrote "I worked very hard to learn a few essential phrases only to be told that the other person does not speak English. There are not as many English speakers as you have been led to believe."

They added: "If you don't understand something fully, hire a good translator, particularly if it's something legal. Some people think they know more English than they do, and you can be (un)intentionally misled."

If you plan to come and look for freelance work, one Expat Exchange member cautioned: "Don't come without a job."

CoWork Space

Here is info from Coworker.com for Prague, Czech.

Where to Live in Prague

Here is a link of places to places listed on Airbnb Prague for short-term housing.

Prague is broken up into municipal districts

Old Town Prague (google maps) in Prague 1 is a nice blend of the old, historic and new. There's plenty to do, but their is a lot of bustle, particularly in the summer months as noted above. Very popular.

Vysehrad in Prague 2 is famed for its old fort, but it has turned into a pricey residential area. Nice if you can swing it.

For those interested in moving to Prague long-term, one expat advised to others moving to Prague that she would choose "Prague 6 for me everytime, especially with kids, lived there for 8 years."
