Prague’s beauty and affordability have helped put it in fourth place in a top 20 ranking of emigration destinations for British people seeking to quit their homeland drawn up by The Daily Telegraph. Not-so-beautiful Warsaw took top spot in large part due to the country’s booming economy. The British paper also praised Czech beer and said there was no need to learn the difficult local language.
Prague ranked as the best city in Central Europe to locate a business, according to Cushman & Wakefield, but Western European cities still held the top spots. Prague dropped sharply in value for money for office space, beaten by Warsaw and Bratislava. The quality of the labor force gets some praise, but telecommunications remains a drawback. Other cities in the CEE region are starting to gain momentum.
