Working and living in Prague in numbers

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is the centre of government, economics and culture. It attracts people who want to build a career. About one sixth of all Czech people work in Prague. This number is growing every year. The unemployment in Prague is falling every year- from 3,9 percent last year to 3,5 percent this year.

However, there are less people living in Prague than in 1989. It is caused by rich Prague citizens moving into large houses in the villages around Prague who just commute to Prague every day.

The Czech Republic also notices the higher number of foreigners living here. This year there are 310 049 foreigners in the Czech Republic, which is about 30 000 people more than last year. 89 997 foreigners live in Prague. They are mainly from Ukraine, Slovak, other EU countries and Vietnam.
