Besides the government mandatory requirements, quite a lot of companies in the Czech Republic require their employees to have a driving license. Due to the price accessibility, the privilege of taking the driving course in English, and the benefit of getting an international driving license, we recommend you to get it as soon as possible!
Do you feel proud of your roots when someone tells you that they are going to spend a vacation in the place you have been growing up? I definitely do. And it happens to me quite frequently since I come from Žďár nad Sázavou, a town famous for its exceptional baroque structure of the Pilgrimage Church of St. Jan Nepomuk that is listed in the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage Sites.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is still not over yet, many experts are already talking about the potential second wave of the disease. Some think it will not happen. Some say the possibility of the second wave occurring is high. Some are even convinced that it has already begun. Even though it would be certainly wrong to start panicking, it is still advised to stay updated about the situation.
Are you a student from a non-EU country and not sure if you will be allowed to enter the country for next semester starting in September 2020? Can you leave the Czech Republic for the summer holidays and come back? And what about those who are already back in their homeland? Once the COVID-19 pandemic spread into the Czech Republic, everything came to a halt and borders were closed so no one could get in or out without a good reason. And even then travelling was essentially impossible for a couple of weeks. Now there are updates regarding the arrivals of foreigners from non-EU countries and extensions of long-term residence permits.
Some of us go abroad for studying, working or perhaps when following our life partner to their homeland. Some of us like to travel far and long to discover unfamiliar corners of the world. Reasons for leaving a home country are many but they all have connecting elements, not all of them necessarily being pleasant and commonly talked about – cultural shock, loneliness, even depression can hit once you root yourself out of the familiar land and try to plant yourself in a new geographical and cultural environment.
Mould is a fungus and, as typical in these tiny organisms, you may observe it growing in humid corners despite your careful regular cleaning and maintenance of your house. As you might already know, it can cause a lot of damage to the walls and furniture, but worse than that, it can cause breathing and skin problems if you are in contact with it regularly. For these reasons, you should be mindful and try to prevent mould appearing in your house in the first place.
