We hope you've enjoyed our special expat-focus week of celebrating InterNations’ ranking of “The best cities for expats in 2017” where Prague made it to the 2nd place. Prague is often at or near the top of similar rankings, which we took as a reason to ask some of our expats in the office about their experience of working and living in the Czech capital.
Dale Turnbull has lived in the Czech Republic for more than four years after living in many other cities, including Chester, London, Bayreuth in Germany, Costa Calma in Fuertaventura and also in Murcia, Spain.
What do you enjoy the most about living in Prague?
That there is something for everybody, you really can’t get bored here! From my time living in Spain I still love the Latin bars, tapas and Latin parties – which I can find plenty of in Prague too. My favorite thing to do on the weekend is going for a walk to find new things and places to try out. I also love Karaoke and just going out!
You are also learning Czech, do you think it is necessary to live in Prague?
No, it is definitely not necessary and I lived several years here without speaking any. But the Czechs appreciate it and I can now understand the culture better. Of course it is difficult, but I love a good challenge too.
When your friends back home are asking you what you love the most about Prague, what do you tell them?
That I love that it is so multicultural – it really is a melting pot of so many different cultures from all over the world and this is especially the case at NonStop too. I also tell them that there is just an endless list of amazing things to do. From skiing in the winter, hiking in the fantastic national parks and visiting the surrounding cities.
How would you describe Prague in 3 words?
Vibrant, multicultural and random!
