#LifeInCzechia Culture, an intricate web of beliefs, values, traditions, and behaviors, defines the identity of a nation and its people. In this extensive blog post, we embark on a fascinating journey to uncover and compare the contrasting realms of Czech and American cultures.

#LifeInCzechia I am currently a senior at Pennsylvania State University as a Telecommunications Major with a Digital Media Trends and Analytics Minor through the Bellisario College of Communications. I grew up the daughter of a Marine and had the opportunity to travel to twenty countries, more than half of the United States, and I lived in Okinawa, Japan for two and a half years. During this final Summer before I graduate in December I decided to intern with Foreigners.cz in Brno. I studied abroad last Summer in Brno for six weeks and in that time fell in love with the city, culture, and people. Through that experience I realized that I want to work and live outside of the United States after I graduate.
#LifeInCzechia Traveling to another country or region brings a lot of change and new experiences, and moving to another place can bring even more. Embracing new cultures, places, foods, and traditions can be exciting, but being prepared for the journey begins before you even board the airplane.

Did you come to the Czech Republic as a student? Make sure to double-check your residence permit designation, because you might be obligated to take a mandatory adaptation and integration course! It all depends on what kind of visa or permit you have. Even if you technically came here to study, as long as your residence permit has the label “other”, you do not fall under the exemption that other students and visa holders do.
Are you a third-country citizen planning to study in the Czech Republic or are you already studying here? One way or another, you should double-check that you know how to apply for your visa, what to do when you get to the Czech Republic, how to extend your permit once it expires, and what to do when you want to leave the country for a vacation and your visa extension hasn’t yet been approved.
If you were to take a walk along the Ponávka river these days, you’d see that two brand new buildings have grown next to Domeq, Brno’s unique coliving project.

Hi, my name is Anna, I am 22 years old, and I am currently living in Brno. I was born and raised in Luxembourg, with a double nationality, Luxembourgish and Czech.
I lived in Luxembourg until my graduation in 2018, however, I visited my relatives and friends in the Czech Republic during my whole life. Living in a bi-lingual household, the language never was an issue whenever I came here.
