What do I need to know before moving to Kutna Hora?

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

"Kutna Hora is a small city located in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic, known for its rich history and stunning architecture. Before moving to Kutna Hora, expats should know that the official language is Czech, and while English is commonly spoken in tourist areas, it may not be as widely spoken in residential areas or by older generations. The cost of living in Kutna Hora is generally lower than in larger cities like Prague, but it's still important to budget carefully, especially if you plan on frequently traveling to other parts of Europe. The city is known for its historical sites, including the Sedlec Ossuary, a chapel decorated with human bones, and the Saint Barbara's Church, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Public transportation in Kutna Hora is reliable and affordable, with trains and buses connecting the city to other parts of the Czech Republic. The city has a temperate continental climate, with warm summers and cold, snowy winters, so expats should pack a variety of clothing to suit all seasons. Healthcare in the Czech Republic is of a high standard, but expats should ensure they have comprehensive health insurance, as free healthcare is only available to Czech citizens and permanent residents. The Czech Republic is part of the Schengen Area, so expats from other Schengen countries can move freely without a visa, but those from outside the area will need to apply for a visa or residence permit. Czech people are known for their love of beer, and Kutna Hora is no exception, with several local breweries and pubs to explore. Finally, while Kutna Hora is a safe city overall, like any place, it's important to take common-sense precautions to protect yourself and your belongings," remarked one expat who made the move to Kutna Hora.
