What do I need to know before moving to Czechia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Czechia, they said:

"Expats should be aware that Czech is the official language of Czechia, and although English is widely spoken, it is beneficial to learn some basic Czech phrases. It is also important to note that the currency in Czechia is the Czech Koruna (CZK). Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Czechia is generally lower than in other European countries. Additionally, expats should research the local laws and regulations to ensure they are compliant with the local laws. Finally, expats should be aware that the healthcare system in Czechia is generally of a high standard, and expats should ensure they have adequate health insurance," replied a member in Czech Rep.

"All in all, we've really enjoyed our 2 years in Brno and find it a highly "livable" city. It's not the Disneyland that Prague is, but that's what makes it more of a Czech experience," commented one expat who made the move to Brno.
