Říčany Boasts Best Quality of Life in Czechia, Prague Comes Second
According to a new index, Říčany is the best place to live and offers the highest quality of life in the Czech Republic, followed by Prague and Brandýs nad Labem.
Říčany, a small town of over 16,000 souls in the Central Bohemian region located on the south-eastern outskirts of Prague, has – once again – been ranked as the place offering the best quality of life in the Czech Republic.
The ranking, put together by data analysis company Obce v Datech in cooperation with consulting firm Deloitte in order to help municipalities identify possible deficiencies and people decide where to live, ranks over 200 Czech municipalities according to a number of criteria (health, environment, work, education, services, safety, transport, leisure, housing, etc.).
According to Deloitte manager Filip Neterda, “our major goal is to actually help the cities to get their strategic priorities right, to better target the areas into which public investment is required […] We would be really happy if it could serve as a tool for public investment at the level of a city”.
As a whole, the country’s two largest cities, Prague and Brno, along with their respective surrounding municipalities, performed better in the quality of life ranking.
The lowest scores were, on the opposite, more often found in municipalities located in the country’s north-western and north-eastern regions, mainly in the surrounding areas of Ostrava and Usti-nad-Labem.
Here are the top 10 best places to live in the Czech Republic, according to the index:
- Říčany – Central Bohemia
- Prague – Prague
- Brandýs nad Labem-Stará Boleslav – Central Bohemia
- Hustopeče – South Moravian
