I think you need to update your figures - the current financial climate has radically changed the cost of living here in plzeň - given 20% inflation things are quite different and your figures are very out of date!

Is Plzen a nice city to live as a family? What price would it be for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment to rent in the city centre ? Do you think it is a nicer place to live than Prague ? Any other Czech cities you recommend ? thanks
