Finding an Apartment in Prague

Are you thinking of moving to Prague? If so, great choice!

Prague is an intriguing place to live – It has a thriving social scene, ever expanding international community (and the fantastic cuisine that comes with it!), not to mention there is always something going on, so it’s very unlikely you’ll ever get bored.

That being said, finding a place to live can sometimes be a bit tricky here (the rental market sure is HOT! I lost two flats before landing in my current accommodation).

If you know where to look and what to look out for

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: moving IS a big deal. Whether you’ve only moved once or you move all the time, moving inevitably leaves you with change.

It is how you deal with this change that will ultimately determine whether or not you are successful with your move, which is why knowing how to manage change is an important skill to have in the event of a relocation.

Moving or travelling to a new place can be an exciting and fascinating thing. It can also be a scary thing, a confusing thing and a very very unsettling thing. You don’t know the new neighbourhood, you won’t know anybody living around you, the lights may be brighter, the noise may be louder (or quieter!), you may not speak the local language and goodness gracious, where on earth has the shower gone?! Oh wait, there it is ~ in the form of two hose pipes attachable to the taps…

Needless to say, a few adjustments may need to be
