Hey guys, I've been receiving many questions from you asking what I'm doing in Denmark since I moved from Prague. Most of them have been asked multiple times, so I decided to write an article and answer the most frequent ones :) I hope you'll enjoy it and feel free to ask more. This Q/A is new for me, but I'm starting to enjoy it and I'll definitelly write more articles like this in a future.
What are you doing in Copenhagen?
I'm working, attending a language school, exploring the new city, trying to get used to it.
How did you get there?
My boyfriend has been offered an interesting job opportunity, so we decided to take it.
How long will you be there? Forever?
Don't think so :) However, I don't know yet, we will see.

How is the life in CPH?
It's hard to explain in a few words. Compared to Prague, CPH is calmer, more easy-going, everybody is biking. People enjoy every beam of summer light, sitting in parks or sunbanthig on the beach. The city is well prepared for spending time outside, there are free deck chairs by the channels, free grills in parks, where you're allowed to bring your own food and make a braai. On the other hand, your feeling about every city depends on how many beloved people you have there, close to you. Even though you move alone to a Paradise, it most likely won't be what you want. Going to school, working, networking helps, but you still need to be very active and make some effort. Exploring new places, shops, finding new doctors, fighting with bureaucracy, that's a whole different story. So yes, it's fine and exciting, but not easy.
I like scandinavian countries, how can I get to Denmark?
The easiest way is to start studying here. For EU citizens it's free here and if you're also working approx. 40h/week you'll be given around 700 eur by the DK government. I don't know the exact conditions, but you'll easily find them on the web for sure. However, the life is rather expensive here. Even though you can study for free, everything else is ~3 times more expensive than in Czech/Slovak rep.
