What do I need to know about living in Prague?

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

"Before retiring in Prague, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, Czech. Although English is widely spoken, it is beneficial to learn some basic Czech phrases to make daily life easier. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in Prague, as it is higher than in other parts of the Czech Republic. It is also important to research the healthcare system in Prague, as it is different from other countries.
