What do expats in Prague appreciate most about the local culture?

"Once you have friends, they are wonderful friends. The food is not so healthy but delicious, the beer is the best. Magical architecture, beautiful countryside, Prague has excellent, inexpensive public transportation," said another expat in Prague.

"There ARE some manners I like. People willing hop up to give somebody older their seat on the bus/train. People offer the help with directions a lot. There are no standards with dress, everyone wears what they want to wear! Its great. There is no corporate standard..levels within society. Most people like to relax and enjoy life..with a beer," remarked another in Prague.
