I posted the question to some graduates living and teaching in Prague on what they felt were the 5 best things about living in the city (with negatives as well)
Likes: the ex-pat circuit is close and like family. public transportation is fantastic (until they're striking). Opportunities for entertainment and fun social experiences abound. Parks!
Likes: lots of paid holiday -- although that might not be typical for teachers.
Likes: 1). Ease of travel around the city and around Europe! 2.) Its a safe city, overall if you are wise to the night freaks. 3.) Lots of culture and tons of festivals- architecture, music, dancing, opera, theater, literature - in many languages. 4.) Great beer and breweries to visit, and great places to drink said beer all over the country. 5.) Not only are you in a big city, but you also have the nature. Plenty of huge parks and forests in and out of the city. Many places to do outdoor activities all year round.
Likes: 1) The interesting culture/food/traditions/language, 2) the willingness and enthusiasm Czechs have when learning/speaking English/hanging out with Anglo-speaking people, 3) the beauty of the city, 4) how openly "lustful" Czechs seem to be, 5) how easily accessible the "nature" is.
Beer, women, transportation, architecture - but not necessarily in that order.
Likes: 1.Things to do! From cultural events, restaurants, pubs, beer gardens, day trips, the list goes on and on. 2. Architecture & history.... I'm on year 3 here in the C.R. and I don't get bored walking the streets and learning new things. 3. Czech interest in language and different cultures. 4. Size of Prague... its' big enough, but not too big. It's a very walkable city. 5. Once a Czech decides they like you, you are in. They are very loyal and awesome once you can crack that shell.
Negative things that they mentioned were
a. Czechs can be pretty stoic when you first meet them
b. The visa process is tasking
c. Lack of air conditioning
d. Government bureaucracy
f. Technology is still backwards
Hope that helps,
