InterNations Recommended Expat Media
Prague is undoubtedly the single biggest magnet for foreigners in the Czech Republic and one of the major expat hubs in Central Europe. As in most globalized cities with large, highly diverse expatriate populations, it is very common for expats to be able to get through their time abroad without picking up the local language – English is nearly universally understood. Still, many foreign professionals have an interest in staying up to date with the latest from their temporary hometown and host country, be it to stay abreast of economic and political developments or to get to know the city and its people better. Thus, it is not surprising that Prague’s media landscape makes an effort to address the international community’s need for trustworthy news reporting on current events around the city and the Czech Republic.
One of the longest-running news sites of its kind in the Czech Republic, the Prague Monitor has strived to be the number one English-language news outlet for the expat population in Prague and the rest of the country for more than 10 years as of the time of writing. Successfully, we might add: every day, some 15,000 readers get their news from this daily English online newspaper.
Updated Monday through Friday, the Prague Monitor’s editorial staff provides the website’s audience with everything the discerning expat readership might expect in terms of professional news coverage. Here, the focus is on the paper’s core objective: presenting the latest news from around Prague and the Czech Republic to the growing international community. You can expect to find up-to-date reporting on the following:
- local and national news
- real estate
- society and culture
Additionally, the paper offers a job listings section, a business directory, and an event calendar. Readers also have the opportunity to sign up for the daily newsletter – a convenient way to get up to speed on the latest events in the morning.
Although the core audience of the Prague Monitor is the city’s expatriate community, its efforts in building bridges between foreigners and locals through high-quality English news reporting are also attracting a growing Czech readership. In addition to that, the publication has also become a household name among people from all over the world interested in finding out about Prague and the Czech Republic.
If you are an expat in Prague or are intrigued by the idea of becoming one, the Prague Monitor should definitely be among your websites to keep an eye on.
