Bear in mind the devaluation of the euro affects all currencies throughout Europe.
Its small and fairly outdated. The company pays 25, CZK per month utilities not included. Daniel on May 12, : Hi Costin I'll just leave a few thoughts and answer some of your questions: - regarding the salary, I'm afraid that your salary offer in Prague looks to me like a downgrade of your current buying power in current city, at least according to Numbeo, the main reason of course being the huge dent that the rent would put in your monthly earnings here in Prague; including allowance for the 1 child, your net will still be a rather low CZK, this is about about euros expressed in Euros, which might seem more than double what you have now, however the fact that you own or can use a flat there for free, makes a huge difference.
So its unlikely that you can find anything for less than CZK per month in housing costs, which translates to almost euros - if you simply deduct from you net salary estimate of euros, you can see you are left with EUR, so back to square one, wouldn't seem to me like an increase in standard of living compared to Oradea, Romania Add to that the fact that many things are quite a bit more expensive here, again taking mainly numbeo as reference.
Look instead to Scandinavia, Netherlands, Germany, the UK even while you still can, as the quality of life is still above here IMHO, as well as you have to consider the future of your child. Good luck with everything, hope it works out well for you! Is this enough for me with wife and small baby? Wife cannot work for at least another years. We are not expecting any luxury as I know Prague is quite expensive and we do have a bit of savings plus we are going to sell car before moving, so should have some euro as backup.
I am from Romania, Oradea earning about the equivalent of euros here net , which we get on fine but that's also because my wife has a flat inherit from parents so we don't pay the rent here. What do you think? Anonymous on May 11, : Daniel I'm not trying to create a scene or disable your input. Understand any site that gives net saleries or anything remotely close to financial advice isn't really stating true numbers.
Yes all governments are corrupt that's a given unfortunately. My sister has worked for the Czech government for about 18 years now as I mentioned priorly. That doesn't mean she agrees with the governments methods to defraud people needlessly. But as a government employee she must follow their orders or be dismissed, even worse retaliation from the government directly.
Understand that government and employers work together to create net salaries complimenting each other's financial portfolios,it happens more often than people realise. Many employees are too afraid to mention anything about their net wages for fear of retaliation by their employers.
Jobs aren't plentiful in Prague or throughout Czech for that matter. Its easy to generate information as to minimum wage but not accurate. Numbeo isn't at fault for inaccurate costs because Numbeo depends upon others for accurate data. Government officials line their pockets with the Czech people's money. You could drive by any government officials house and see an elaborate home and wonder how they can afford that?
Corruption is how it's done on their parts. However government employees such as my sister don't have the same living quarters by any means. But I completely agree with you that in general the numbers from any government office shouldn't be trusted, as they don't tend too efficient. So no, the average net salary in Prague is not USD, its quite a bit higher than that.
As for the number here on Numbeo which I see is now showing , this is not far from the official statistical info, so I guess could be taken as truthful enough. This being a website that relies on user-input, its normal that there will be slight differences from official statistics. There are many net wage calculators online, I used platy. I went thru the experience of having to find a new flat myself recently as my previous one was being put on the market for sale, and finding the new flat too rent felt MUCH more difficult now that the last time I went through having to find a flat, which was in early Plus many will insist to add a clause of inflation-linked automatic rent increase once or twice per year.
At the end of the day, besides the obvious problem of lack of enough newly built places, there's also a huge lack of regulation here to dissuade this kind of blatant profiteering, hence why nowadays you see everyone and their mother becoming real estate agents over night, some without any kind of license, simply doing it as a side job to get some extra earnings, probably so they can afford their own ever increasing rent : Anonymous on May 09, : To Salary The statistical office of the Czech will print anything to apease citizens or to lure others thinking about relocating to Prague or the Czech republic.
What the real numbers are much lower than the statistical office claims as mentioned. Bear in mind the devaluation of the euro affects all currencies throughout Europe. And its the lowest possible salary for single person without kids and other tax discounts.
Anonymous on May 02, : Hugh Europe might as well join Russia and be one big happy broke family. Sounds harsh but reality is reality. Decent housing, having a roof over your head without the worry that you might lose it tomorrow should not be reserved for the elites but for every hardworking individual, no matter what job he does.
Its unfortunate that this is the reality we live in right now, but there doesn't seem to be any relief anytime soon, neither in Prague nor in Britain or many other places. If you want to be in a central area, add at least 5k more and probably you'll be in a smaller space.
Unfortunately cost of living in Prague is increasing by the minute, anything from rent to other costs, so maybe try to also negotiate a higher salary. I think I can also negotiate to work in Brno. What do you guys think? Andriy on Apr 14, : Yes, I understand what you say, the situation is not good in most places in Europe. Sure rents and purchasing a house are more reasonable compared to Prague.
But once again salaries don't offset the real cost of living, once again no financial gain. Anonymous on Apr 10, : Andriy I agree with government intervention but you obviously haven't clearly thought out the most important things. Ofcourse people will make more money living in other areas of Europe as you stated, however the extra money people make will be eaten up with rent or purchasing a house, utilities, transportation,food,and taxes etc.
Bottom line nothing gained financially. Andriy on Apr 10, : Anonymous But if you look at percentaje of salary which is spent on place to live, is very few other civilised places in Europe which can be close to Prague. If in those countryes the rent will be eqal to salary, which is not, they will do somethin about it. Its a mixed bag throughout Europe. Prices are even higher plus civil unrest abounds.
Andriy on Apr 07, : Is right what they say about crazy price of apartments. How can live like that? What if want to have kid? Maternity money very less Property markets in Prague is like a giant castel of cards. Building up higher, and higher, but all fake, because shud never be so high if consider how much people earning selary. Slowly becoming very depressing and stressful live in Prague. Whoever consider come here, should go instead Germany, Netharlands, Sweden, Finland.
Those realy are good places, Prague was also good just little years ago, but now change so much only to the worst. Pity, but this is reality. Anonymous on Apr 03, : Daniel good overview of costs in general for Prague. The way I see it is the market will be flooded with so many vacant houses for sale that sooner or later some income will be needed to offset the cost of so many properties being vacant.
Its true many expats make 55k 65k and more mine being twice the amount you mentioned. Regardless of the amount most expats make in general the majority are careless with their surplus of money. The majority of expats are retired Americans, Aussies Brits,etc. Any retired expat that'd even consider buying an apartment or house that late in life doesn't make sense but many do just the same.
I lived in Prague for five years and although it was nice I got tired of living in the freezer lol but I knew that before I moved there. Daniel on Mar 30, : Anonymous latest comment, Mar. Average salary overall? For locals? For expats? I would think most people checking Numbeo are of course expats, and the average salary of an expat that came here to work as a professional is far above the general average.
I would think CZK net is the average an expat earns, or possibly higher, although of course the median might be lower due to the outliers that earn multiples of the normal salaries. Yes, that is high, especially at this moment in time, but honestly, the more I live here the more I start to realize that when people kept telling me a few years back when I moved here that the prices of property can't really go lower, they were right, as the constant stream of newly created jobs and the new arrivals to take those jobs, simply have no available new housing to move into, and the government is doing sod-all about it, thus things cannot change into the next years, its simple math.
I guess one thing is for sure, nobody will buy flats in Prague at these price levels for the rental yield, as this is slowly heading lower and lower. Anonymous on Mar 27, : The main, no. You can draw your own conclusions from that. Anonymous on Mar 26, : The cost of living is ridiculous in Prague.
Rent for a good 1 bedroom apartment is CZK per month. So there is no way you can survive on the average wage. I think you need at least CZK per month to survive. Anonymous on Mar 20, : If you want an accurate answer to any salary in Prague or throughout the Chezk republic look at current currency values after all that's truely what determines saleries. Heres an excellent answer to current currency fluctuations updated every 24 hours. Google whatever your currency is to CZK the money converter.
Scroll down and highlite the heading. The Hays website is fine for general information but goggleing the above info I provided will give up to the minute accuracy. Currency valuations dictate ecomonys regardless of which country, always will. Hopefully this will help you. Anonymous on Feb 18, : The price of real estate quoted are quite off from the current prices.
You cannot find any 3 bedrooms 4kk in prague 1 for 31K, the real rent would be more from 45K minimum going upwards. The same for a 1 bedroom 2kk , a decent place would be impossible to find for less than 25K minimum in Prague 1. Other: 7K for going out, sports etc. Waiting your comments, thanks : Anonymous on Feb 07, : I can confirm the cost here, for a single person for my experience in CZ for almost 2. Daniel on Jan 24, : Rocky 60k CZK net per month is almost double the average earnings here in Prague, so it is a good salary, you should be able to easily save a bit every month off that salary.
Rose Highly depends on your personal preferences, whether you can manage sharing accommodation, how far from the center you can accept to travel etc. If you will want to live on your own, close from public transport and not more than min from the center, this budget will be rather tight. Good luck with your move and if you haven't signed the contract yet, try to negotiate a bit higher salary, based on the skyrocketing cost of living here, especially cost of accommodation in the last couple of years, hopefully they will agree to increase it a bit, as it will make a world of difference to have some extra money to spend on yourself.
Or is it too high? I think you've misunderstood what I said. People have to eat as well you know, as well as travel to work etc. As for your comment that "Absolute majority of people don't make that much money and get by just fine. The worst part, in my humble opinion is just how fast things have precipitated towards the worse, meaning that the real-estate market has really gotten out of hands when prices are concerned, its very easy to observe if you keep an eye on the changes on simple search websites such as bezrealitky, but its also reflected in the official statistics.
In my case, as I work for a company that kept expanding its base here, and hiring more people, I've helped many of the newcomers with the chore of settling in here, hence why I kept a keen eye on the rental prices for the last years, and it is rather shocking to see that a flat which you could EASILY find for 15k Kc back in , now commands more like k, as well as the numbers seem to be narrowing down, as I've had saved searches on multiple sites and I can see the number of results dwindling.
Its even worse it seems for purchase prices, but at the same time that also reduced the rental yield on properties here to rather small figures, which should at least hopefully discourage some from investing in property here for the sake of renting it out.
I for one firmly believe that the property situation in Prague is a classic example of a bubble, even though A on Nov 30, : czk net salary is enough for living in Prague for two person? Daniiar on Nov 16, : Hello I am looking for a share room in Prague 2 or 3 the budget is up to czk phone number Leo on Nov 13, : What is the minimum base salary for living two person me and my wife in Prague? I don't need to live in luxury but I want to live good enough and maybe save money.
Cost calculator says 43K, including 1 bedroom in city centre. It seems base salary should be higher than 60K. Waiting your comments. It will be deducted automatically from your salary every month. Anonymous on Oct 11, : Times has changed quite big time in the city over last 5 years. Unemployment is record low, but salaries against the growth of prices grew very slowly, don't be misled by averages.
It became much more expensive. I agree with Daniel in most of what he says. Rent of 2 rooms flat sqm equiped and in good condition, in the more central area is about 28,, Czk with utilities per 1 person. If you want to eat outside and get reasonable quality so you don't risk any problems next day, it is for more or less same money as in the many other big cities in Western Europe.
NotDaniel on Oct 06, : Of course, I am talking about single person or a pair, not raising a family in a huge 4 bedroom apartment in the city center on a single person's paycheck. NotDaniel on Oct 06, : Daniel's responses are completely unrealistic. Absolute majority of people don't make that much money and get by just fine.
I don't know what he means by "alright to get by" but for 40k you would live in a huge luxurious place. Because if I check the net salary calculator I see a lot of fields of deductions, so I am wondering if they all apply to us as non EU. For a single person willing to live in a small sqm flat, I would say its manageable, but not good enough to live the "good life" for sure.
Depends a lot on what your living arrangements expectations are, as if you used to and willing to share a flat, than probably you will have a lot more money left over for fun stuff. Anonymous on Aug 29, : Hi I was offered a job in Prague for 40,Kc, I would like to know if that is enough as a single parson to live in the city?
Have a comment? Thankful Peter on Aug 20, : Overpriced housing. This city is getting too trendy. But you will not be living in luxury, nor renting something near the center, that's for sure. Depends where you're coming from and what you're used to as well, I suggest you use this cost of living comparison tool between cities right here on numbeo Martin on Jul 10, : Hi, I have been offered a job position in Prague.
The base neat salary to discuss is I have recently been in the city on vacations and I really loved it. Thanks in advance. Lukas on Jun 03, : Moe Average salary in Prague is 26k and you are asking if k is ok? Dont worry about health insurance, it is not more than 3k for month for person or mostly paid by state, if you get confirmation of rezidence or work here.

Zuzana on May 31, : If you want to save on public transportation buy the one for 60days, cause it cost ,- instead of paing ,- every mont. Thath was I did when I was living there.
Prague is very expensive, but locals know how yo safe and where. Try find small local markets for better prices for seasonal veggie and fruites. I also remember my friends will go shoping on thuesday night to kaufland, cause they drop all the price on veggies after like 7 or 8pm. Most off the people really hunting the prices and go buy the cheapest here and there.
