Relocating to Czech Republic

Bohemia, defenestration and castles

The random fun fact that sets you in the right mind frame when you consider relocating to Czech Republic is that there are more castles per acre than anywhere else in the world. Considering its situation in the centre of greedy Europe this is hardly surprising. There are more than 2 000 castles today. Prague castle is the largest castle in the world by over 18 acres. It was the setting for the creation of the title Baron Highfall.

The famous act of defenestration happened in Bohemia. In 1618 a group of Protestants threw three Catholics out of a third story window. They were (debatably) lucky, landing in a pile of horse manure, they all survived. One of the survivors became known as Baron Highfall. And no – it wasn’t his real last name.

In January 1993 the Czech Republic became an independent state when Czechoslovakia split into its two constituent parts. It joined the EU in 2004, and the Schengen area in 2007. The currency is the Czech koruna (CZK £10 = 333.75 CZK). The beautiful Czech capital, Prague, is more than 1 000 years old, with a wealth of historic architecture. Hills and mountains cover about 95% of the country — ideal for skiing, mountain biking and hill walking. Wild boar and foxes are found in the abundant woodlands.
