15 reasons not to move to the Czech Republic.
In the first week of April, TutiTam ascertained the main “minuses” and “pitfalls” of emigration to certain countries. Our authors urged to reflect on whether the “new homeland” would actually be better than before.
Readers of TUTATIM also decided not to stay away. Alex Rong from the Czech Republic tells about 15 reasons why you can change your mind about emigrating to the country of beer, Bohemian crystal and medieval castles.
Czechia is considered one of the best countries for emigration: here it is really possible to enter a free university, to open a business or to find work in a decent company. Beauty Prague attracts thousands of people from all over the world, and Christmas in the Czech Republic is a journey into a fairy tale. But is this country so beautiful?
1 . Let’s start with the most important thing – in the Czech Republic you all nachhat. In the truest sense of the word: Czechs do not follow themselves and blink right and left, sneezing without covering their mouths, snorting and “letting the winds” ceaselessly. Any man can suddenly approach the lamppost or tree and urinate. Thought it was only in Russia? Anything similar: even if nearby there is a cafe with a free toilet, a tree for the Czech is much more attractive.
2. Czechs in general are insane people: in early March, local media reported that on June 1, 2016 in the Old Town Square in Prague, thousands of people will arrange a session of group masturbation. A couple of days the organizers backed up and all canceled, but the thoughts are wandering about. Think, you definitely want to move to the Czech Republic for permanent residence?
3. In the Czech Republic – some drug addicts. Marijuana smoke is universal: a recent WHO study has shown that every fourth Czech schoolchild at the age of 15 smokes grass. What can we say about adults: after all, for the use of any drugs in the Czech Republic are not punished, but to get caught by the police, you need to seriously try. Marijuana in the Czech Republic is not legalized, but the maximum that you can be afraid of an ordinary smoker is a fine. For someone it’s probably a holiday, but, seriously, do you really dream of living next to ukurkami, which always giggle without a reason?
4. In the Czech Republic there are a lot of homeless people who like to smell in residential areas, parks, subway stations and even children’s playgrounds. The police do not seem to notice: if the tramp did not break anything, then there’s nothing to take him to the police. Usually homeless people do not really represent a danger, but every year they become more and more.
5. In the Czech Republic you can always get up in town but – the locals do not particularly follow their dogs. This is not northern Europe, where peasants are pulled back, even when they simply reflect on marking the territory. Under the feet you need to look like in Prague (especially in Prague!), And in other cities of the republic.
6. In the Czech Republic is expensive to live. It seems that the cost of utilities is falling, gas and light are getting cheaper, but the rent is still significantly high. It’s expensive to go by taxi, park cars, sit on the Internet and talk on the mobile. Cellular operators are trying to cash in on everything. However, to Russia, of course, Czech companies are far away: while in the Czech Republic they do not charge for listening to the message “Subscriber is not available”, as is customary for Russians. But, it is necessary to recognize that with food and beer in the cafe and restaurants of the Czech Republic, everything is fine: the average dinner will cost 99 kroons (less than � 4).
7. Czechs like to warm naive fools. If you sign an agreement in the Czech Republic (whatever: apartment rent, internet, mobile connection), then carefully read everything, including what is written in fine print. You can impose a service for which you absolutely did not want to pay. And, even if you cancel this service, you will receive money for several more months.
8. It’s difficult to work with the Czechs. They can spend several days on a task that the Russian will take several hours. If you work in one company with a Czech, then he will do anything to stop you if you suddenly insolence and decide to work better than him.
9. In the Czech Republic they do not know how to dress, but not because there is no taste, but simply there are no normal clothes and shoes. To find a really worthwhile thing, you have to browse through a bunch of online stores (good, they’ll deliver in 1-2 days) or go shopping in Italy or Austria: in Europe everything is so close.
10. There are no night stores in the Czech Republic. Many shops close at 8 pm, some supermarkets are open until 9 pm. And in that small part of the stores, which are open late, godlessly overstate prices. In the Czech shops there is no normal fish and sausages, but about pelmeni here, it seems, did not hear at all. Many Czechs, by the way, are bought for future use, and then they throw away the spoiled food: most often it’s bread, vegetables, fruit, milk.
11. There are no night pharmacies either. At the same time in the pharmacies can not buy anything without a prescription, except that lollipops for cough, vitamins or condoms. By the way, a couple of words about medicine: compulsory medical insurance costs a lot of money.
12. There is not much sun in the Czech Republic and it is always lacking. In the summer often rains, the weather is constantly changing: sometimes it is very cold, it is very hot. The most comfortable time of the year is autumn, but already in October it is cool at night. The Czech weather can easily remind both Russian and British colds.
13. The authorities of the Czech Republic are tightening their nuts. Not so long ago, the Czech Republic, along with Germany, was recognized as the best countries in Europe for drinkers, smoke and eat harmful food – the state practically does not control these spheres in any way. But for several months the Czech government has been discussing a proposal to ban smoking in the streets, squares and parks. The Czech Republic, which until recently was a paradise for smokers, can turn into hell.
14. You will not believe, but for living in the Czech Republic you need to learn Czech. And this is not so easy: even people from Slavic countries have to spend many years on this. The Czech language does not look like anything: who would have thought that “obchod s potravinami” is just a “grocery store”. It only seems that the Czech language is easy: in the word “ovoce” you can easily see the reference to “vegetables”, but in fact it is “fruit”. And “okurky” is not what you thought, but “cucumbers”. To finally finish off: “letadlo” is an “airplane”, and letuska – correctly, “stewardess”.
15. And finally: in the Czech Republic do not like Russians. A recent study showed that most of the residents of the republic do not tolerate Afghans, Chechens, Gypsies, Arabs. In the top 12 hated peoples along with the Chinese and the Turks were Russian and Ukrainians. By the way, the Russian Czechs “come in large numbers” of Russians, too, do not favor.
