Capital’s population edges up
From the beginning of this year to the end of June, 18,405 people moved to Prague, with 11,076 of those arriving from inside the Czech Republic and 7,329 coming from abroad. In contrast, 14,352 people moved away, largely to other parts of the country. Approximately 3,500 Praguers left for a foreign country. The Prague population expansion caused by new arrivals was the second largest in the Czech Republic. Statistically, Central Bohemia overtook Prague, with 6,207 new citizens arriving, meaning it continues to be the most populous region. Half of the regions saw more departures than arrivals, with the most people moving away from Moravia-Silesia.
