All things Czech Republic!
I share with you the best tip I have ever received before coming to this amazing European Country- Getting out of your comfort zone is the best antidote to living in the Czech Republic.
The first time I came to the Czech Republic I was just another tourist and I never imagined that one day I would have the opportunity to study and live in Brno. Let alone enjoy its charm and at the same time face the vicissitudes of moving to an unknown country. Anyway, life takes many turns and here I am sharing with you the best tip that I have received and could help you to better assimilate the idea of living in the Czech Republic.
It is no coincidence that more and more foreigners are choosing to move to this unique country. The Czech Republic has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Europe, its economy is on the upswing, and it usually ranks among the best countries to study and work as a young individual. It sounds quite attractive considering the beauty and safety of Czech cities and the numerous natural and cultural attractions of the country. Although the Czech Republic has incredible opportunities, moving far away from home is not always as harmonious as one could think.
It is normal that being in a country with a culture as unique as the Czech one, we might seek to make connections with what is most familiar or close to us. By this, I mean that we tend to look for places where you can meet more of “your” people to share the experience of living in the Czech Republic and not feel so lonely. Although being in contact with people who are culturally close to you helps to cope with the adaptation process, in other cases it isolates you- especially when you limit yourself to interacting with things that are just close to your own nationality. In order to enjoy your journey in the Czech Republic to the fullest extent, it could be a great idea to get in touch with locals, learn their mores, visit their places recommendations, and enjoy their friendly and warm company.
Another great opportunity to engage with this country is by learning the Czech language. Although learning Czech is not a necessity, it can be a great tool to grow language and social skills and to understand the Czech culture in a depth-way. Locals are not shy to light up your day with a big smile when you try to practice your Czech skills with them!
The best way to enjoy the Czech Republic is by visiting its countless beautiful cities. The Czech Republic has had a great tourist boom in recent years, this boom is undoubtedly due to the great attraction of its capital, Prague, a city where you can find many "fairytale" corners. But I can assure you that the Czech Republic is much more than Prague and Brno, as it has several cities, towns, and places that are well worth a trip to discover. Places like Kutna Hora, Hluboka Castle, Karlovy Vary, Mikulov, and Cesky Krumlov should be on the top of your must-visit list!
Regardless of your approach to enjoying the Czech life, I am sure that the country and its people will gain a special place in your heart.
