It should arrive with the address in different format too. The most important part is the 5 digit code, usually witten as three and two digits, separated by a blank, written before the city/village name or below. And of course: Czech Republic Cool

I have noticed abbreviation after names on the online phonebook.

What do these abbreviations mean:
Ing.
RNDr.
Ing. MSc.
MUDr.

Those are titles used in CR - not only doctors are addressed with titles over there.
Ing. - engineer - of economics, construction, electro etc.
RNDr. - doctor of natural sciences
Ing. MSc. ... not sure, maybe engineer, master of science
MUDr. medical doctor - regardless if medical or dental (= MD)

P.S. it is considered very rude if you do not address Sb. with masters degree with his proper title. E.g. engineers should be addressed "pane inzenyre/pani inzenyrko" and so on. In the US you address doctors only, in Europe everybody with masters degree and title.

Also, most of the titles are BEFORE the name, not after. The only exception is CsC or DrC - those are after the name. For instance: ing. Jana Novakova, CSC. (CSC or DSC means they achieved an extra training in their carrier).

So if I have a Masters Degree in Education, what should I be addressed as in a letter?

Vážení přátelé Ing.CSc. Ludek

Not exactly...
Vážení přátelé = Dear friends
may be used as na universal address ..

Vážený pane, .. universal to address a man
Vážená paní, .. universal to address a woman

pan = Mr
paní = Mrs lady
slečna = Miss
We have no "universal" title for a woman as is Ms in english


Vážený pane inženýre/architekte/doktore, ..
possible, but not necessary

Vážený pane Nováku,
Vážený pane Kabeláči,
Vážená paní Kabeláčová,
when you want to use the surname
using first name is usually reserved to close friends

Vážený pane inženýre Kabeláči - would be too long and is not used this way
