If you’re considering relocating to Prague, one of the first questions you may have will likely concern the average Prague salary. The good news is that with unemployment at an all-time low in 2018, companies are often looking for foreign job applicants to cover the shortcomings of the local market, particularly in sectors such as IT, making it a good time to look for multi-lingual job opportunities in Prague and the Czech Republic.

According to 2018 data released by the Czech Statistical Office, the average wage in the Czech Republic increased by 8.0 percent in the last quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in the previous year, surpassing 30,000 CZK for the first time in the history of the Czech economy at 31,646 CZK.

Analysts say the increase was fueled not only by a tight job market but also by wage increases in the public sphere.

The difference in Prague salary and smaller cities, however, can be up to 30% more of the national average. Therefore basing a relocation on the national salary average is not always a viable indicator when looking at potential earnings.

What is the average Prague salary?

Other cities in the Czech Republic with higher earning potential include Brno, an IT capital, Pilsen, and the Central Bohemian region.

These tables showing Prague salary by industry were compiled using data from partner Prague salary guides and also reflect Prague salaries given on our own Prague job server pages. They are meant to give a range of wages across sectors for anyone who is interested in finding out more about salaries in Prague.
