Moving to Prague

by RWFAN

Hi there,

I'm looking into options for possibly relocating to Prague for a year or so and was wondering if anyone can recommend any craigslist-type sites where I can look into room/flat rentals etc to get an idea of prices?

Also, does anyone have any experience in being a Canadian and the likelihood of being able to get a visa and employment for a foreigner?? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Also looking into Berlin if anyone has any recommendations for there!

Cheers,

Katie

Eu rules require that jobs are offered to EU citizens. Employing a non-EU citizen (and thus obtaining a work visa) is only possible if the employer can prove that no EU citizen can be found to do the job.

You should read through the official information about visa types and requirements on the Czech Embassy in Canada's website;

http://www.mzv.cz/jnp/en/information_for_aliens/index.html

This page gives information about visas for work:

http://www.mzv.cz/jnp/en/information_for_aliens/long_stay_visa/visa_for_a_stay_over_90_days_for_the.html

You will need a labour permit issued in the Czech Rebulic, which can be obtained when an employer seeks to employ you (see above).

I'm afraid it is not a simple matter.

The same applies to all EU countries, including Germany:

http://www.ottawa.diplo.de/Vertretung/ottawa/en/04/visa/can__citizens/work__permit__seite.html

Basically, as a non-EU citizen in the EU you need the job before the visa/permit. In the present economic climate, even temporary jobs are much harder to come by than they once were. Working illegally is not a good idea, of course.

There are several listing services, but You will not able to use them without Czech language knowledge.

I think best for You will be to study http://www.expats.cz/ and use information/links from there.

Regarding work visa- the main issue is to find employer here which will be willing to go trough some hassle, because employer MUST do some paperwork (taking not less than 3 months to complete) before you can apply for a work visa (in embassy in your country of residence). Ususaly this procedure is quite formal and without problems but it can not be circumvented or speeded up. You should expect all the work visa formalities to take atleast 4-5 months to complete.

Consult this official web-page for more detailed info on long-term stay:

In case you are under 31, look into the option of a Working Holiday Visa for Germany. This is about your only chance, unless you have specialized skills in a certain profession.

Travel Tips for Prague

Some useful words in Czech

by JessH

As Prague is such a tourist-oriented city you'll never have to look far to find someone who speaks English.

Nevertheless, I think it's simple common courtesy to always learn the basics in the native tongue, whatever country you visit. And would you know it - most seem to appreciate the effort and it may even force a smile onto the even grumpiest waiter's face :-)

(I'll write the Czech words phonetically... mainly because it's easier, and also because VT won't support certain letters and symbols!) Some useful words in Czech:

Hello! - Dobreeden!
Please - Proseem.
Thank You - Dyekooye.
Yes - Ahno.
No - Nay.
One - Yedden.
Two - Dvah.
Goodbye - Nashledanow.

So, what have we learned today class? All together now:
"Dvah Pils, Proseem" ;-)

shop for crystal ! I have a...

by EuroStar

shop for crystal ! I have a passion for art glass and Czech is the place for glass ! Czech Crystal and glass can be found everywhere! I always make sure to pack very light so I will have plenty of room to bring back a beautiful art piece with me. On one of my many visits to the local crystal shop in search for a perfect glass vase to take home, I came across the most beautiful 3 foot vase. It was absolutely perfect - however at 3 feet - I knew it would be a little impossible to squeeze into my suitcase. Nevertheless, I had to have it !! The shop was able to ship it directly to my house in California. This vase is my most favorite piece in my collection. Anytime someone enters my home it is the first thing they notice. I am so happy to have found it !

Brrr - Prague in the winter

by Taffster

LAYERS!!! MANY OF THEM!! Temps hit -15 when i visited in late January and I was really glad of the layers. Although i took a wooly hat, I ended up buying a new one with ear flaps which was a god send!!
upon being asked for further info:
Well it's the coldest place i've ever been...-15 with a wind-chill of -30 when i was there if i remember rightly! I'll give you my example, when we went walking around, i was wearing jeans, trainers, a tshirt, ski jumper and ski jacket and was still cold. i'd recommend wearing thick tights or something under trousers, if not thermals! and definitely thick/thermal socks! Then, i mean layers on top because when you go into a bar or restaurant they have heaters inside so you want to be able to take your coat and possibly jumper off so that you can 'feel the benefit' afterwards! Don't forget a decent pair of gloves (not nice loose knitted ones with holes), i took ski mits which were a godsend! And also a thick scarf, and if you have one - a bobble hat...i took one but ended up buying a new one (in the centre) with ear flaps too!
In the night i wore knee high boots with thick socks under them, trousers, a top, a long cadri and a coat, with obviously scarf/gloves/hat.

Metronome- Letna Park Praha 1

by nhcram

The Metronome overlooks the Vltava River and city centre. The structure was erected to replace the Stalin Monument which had stood since the early 1950's. The Stalin monument was supposed to be a lasting tribute to the great Communist leader but in 1962 the monument was blown up leaving only the large base.
It is now just a picnic area and meeting place for young people.
