At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at the Czech Republic and some of the bloggers who write about living there.
Girl in Czechland
This anonymous English girl will make you less homesick with her brilliant irony. Her blog is a funny day-to-day life diary of a young girl in “Czechland”, mainly speaking about funny things happening around her (meeting a pet pig in a park in the middle of Prague, stepping on the devil’s assistant of St Nicolas during Christmas or discovering Prague’s hidden beaches). Hilarious pictures feature in each post! Highly recommended.Weird Things in Prague
A great blog about the weirdest things happening in Prague, seen from the eye of a curious explorer and expat living in the Czech Republic. Did you know about the automat of poetry, that recites Czech poetry for free in the beautiful Náměstí míru square? What about the upside down “Dead Horse”, an unusual statue in the Lucerna Palace of Prague? Read about the most unspoiled spots in the city, far from the mainstream tourist attractions; find out the most interesting things about Czech culture and tradition, and have fun discovering new alternative places in Prague!
A nice blog written by an American couple living in Prague, the “Czechesotans”, who are “trying to pronounce four-hundered-and-forty-four. (čtyři sta čtyřicet čtyři)”. If you’re looking for something different to do in the capital and surrounding areas, like visiting an underground nuclear bunker or going hiking somewhere in the woods, this is the blog for you. Enjoy every post and the beautiful pictures… the Czechesotans will delight you with their stories!
Are you looking for a job as an expat, or do you want to know more about the student life in the Czech Republic? Are you looking for some good tips about the Czech bureaucracy or about finding a place to live? For all that, or even if you’d simply like to find a good restaurant for a delicious Czech meal, this blog is definitely a good resource. As its name suggests, Beyond Prague covers many different areas of the Czech Republic for people who want to expand their horizons beyond the capital – follow the menu at the top of the homepage to find different locations to visit (or live in!). Very useful for people who have recently moved to the Czech Republic, but also for people who are going to visit the country on holiday.
Cynthia is one of the most popular bloggers based in the Czech Republic. An American who moved to the Czech Republic in 2013 with her fiancé, her fresh and happy blog features the daily life of an American expat, with all the cultural adaptation it requires. Some of the most exciting places you can find in České Budějovice, Prague and the surrounding areas are featured here: nice cafes, beautiful markets, natural parks, historical centres and much more! The adventures of Cynthia and her boyfriend will catch your heart… follow their stories on Facebook and Instagram as well. Enjoy!
