Moving to Czechia

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on May 01, 2024

Summary: Many expats and digital nomads move to the Czech Republic for its low cost of living, excellent public transportation, and vibrant culture. The most popular cities for expats and digital nomads in the Czech Republic are Prague, Brno, and Ostrava. People looking for a place to live in the Czech Republic can search online for rental listings, contact real estate agents, or look for postings on expat forums. Additionally, many expats and digital nomads find accommodation through short-term rental websites such as Airbnb.

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:

"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," remarked one expat who made the move to Brno.

"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," explained one expat living in Czech Rep.
