Hradec Králové voted best region to live in the Czech Republic

Prague, Czech Republic – Forget Prague. Forget Brno. The best place to live in the Czech Republic lies somewhere in between.

Hradec Králové offers best quality of life in the Czech Republic

For the third time, the east Bohemian region of Hradec Králové has been named as the best region to live in the Czech Republic, according to the 2019 edition of the Misto Pro Zivot (Place for Life) project.

The result stems from an annual survey that ranks the Czech Republic’s 14 regions according to their quality of life, taking into account a wide range of factors like the quality of education, healthcare, infrastructure and social services, and polling a representative panel of over 1.200 respondents all over the country.

Hradec Králové, located slightly more than one hour east of Prague, once again secures its title as the best region to live in the Czech Republic, ahead of South Bohemia and the region of Zlin, in Moravia. It boasts good results in almost every single category, with excellent performances in health care and social services, according to the overall study.

Pavel Hečko, councilor for Hradec Králové’s regional development and tourism, welcomed the results, saying it would raise the prestige of the region, both among foreign tourists and Czechs themselves.

Room for improvement in education and housing

Below average results were however recorded in road safety, education and employment. Mayors of the Hradec Králové region also cited the lack of workforce and a poor housing situation as areas where the region could fare better in the future.

At the other end of the scope, the worst region to live in the Czech Republic, according to the respondents of the survey, is Ústí nad Labem, located in the north-west of Bohemia close to the border with Germany.
