    Your questions are really difficult to answer. You should go to Brno and find them out by yourself. Livable or unlivable belong to you only. Living standard does not count on everyone. Be good !

    I think that probably no one has answered your questions because you can find many of the answers by reading other forums on this board. Just use the search option.

    One thing I can say since I've spent time in India and in Czech Republic (never in Brno though) is that you will notice a strong difference in modesty. If you go to youtube and just watch some Czech commercials you will get some idea of the way of life in CR.

    Also, (not to stereotype but...) you may also notice that most Czech people view the thoughts and opinions of women as equal to men's opinions. Meaning that thoughts and opinions are given the same respect and treatment regardless of whether they come from a man or woman. Which, from my experience, is different than in India.

    Well I hope my comments didn't offend you and I hope they were of some help.

    i would say it's definitely possible for you and your wife to live with 45000 czk. if you don't need to live right in the center a flat for 2 persons would be between 10,000 and 15,000 - that leaves plenty of money for the rest. food is not that expensive and i guess you won't be going everyday to the most expensive restaurants, right?

    you will be perfectly fine with that

    The average salary in the Czech Republic is about 20,000 Kč, and Brno is only perhaps moderately (30-50%??) above the national average for living expenses. So I'd imagine that, at least by Czech standards (not sure what you're used to), that you should be fine.

    Hey Dzurisova, are you serious about women's views being equal as men's ... You guys are behind the times because in Germany if a women wants you to sit and urinate than a man must. :lol:
