Moving to Prague

Hey guys,

I am Paulo, currently living in Bucharest, Romania - However, got a job offer to relocate to Prague.

I was never there although I heard good things about the city.

At this moment in time these are my questions (I would very much appreciate some honest and straight forward answers):

- I am wondering if Prague's a safe city overall especially at night while clubbing ?

- Do Cab drivers try to steal from you knowing that you're a foreigner ? I mean instead of taking you home and charge you 5€ as an example they will try to rip you off and charge you 20€ ? (Only asking cause that's what happened to me when I first moved to Romania, pain in the ass Cab drivers here) At least there's Uber as an option.

- What would be the average price to rent a flat or perhaps a room in a new apartment in the city centre?

- Do you guys think that a net salary of 60-70CZK every month it's enough ? My company offered me a bit more but I was planing to spend every month with accommodation, bills, food and stuff about 40-45.000CZK in order to save up a few coins every month. (Note that I do not cook, have all my meals out. I can do breakfast during the weekends when I am home. I tend to avoid public transportation I mostly use uber. I go out every weekend sometimes Fridays and Saturdays and I am not much of a beer fan I drink whisky most of the times. On top of that I enjoy treating myself and I shop to get new stuff like trainers, polos, jeans on a monthly basis).

Thank you people I would very much appreciate your answers.

Hi Paulo,

- Safe: yeah, no problem, you can walk through the city in deep night without problems :)

- Cab drivers: yes, there are scammers; just install an "official" taxi application on your smartphones to order your trips (AAA Taxi for example), or use Uber or something similar.

- Flat: I would say 10-15k CZK.

- Salary: 60-70k CZK is super!

Cheers,
Jean-Philippe
