What do I need to know before moving to Plzen?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Plzen, they said...

"Plzen, also known as Pilsen, is the fourth most populous city in the Czech Republic and is known for its rich history, beautiful architecture, and world-famous beer. Before moving to Plzen, expats should know that the official language is Czech, which can be quite challenging to learn, but many locals also speak English, especially the younger generation. The cost of living in Plzen is relatively low compared to other European cities, with affordable housing, food, and public transportation. The city has a well-developed public transportation system, including trams, buses, and trains, making it easy to get around. Plzen is famous for its beer, Pilsner Urquell, and the city offers many brewery tours and beer festivals that expats can enjoy. The city has a continental climate, with cold winters and warm summers, so expats should pack accordingly. Healthcare in the Czech Republic is of a high standard, and there are several hospitals and clinics in Plzen. The city is safe, but like any other city, it's advisable to take standard precautions to protect yourself and your belongings. Plzen has a vibrant cultural scene, with numerous museums, galleries, theatres, and music festivals, offering plenty of entertainment options. The city is also home to several international schools, making it a suitable place for expats with children. Czech people are known for their reserved nature, so don't be surprised if locals seem a bit distant at first. Finally, it's important to note that the Czech Republic is a member of the European Union but uses its own currency, the Czech koruna, not the Euro," said a member in Plzen, Czechia.
