|Kevan is a Canadian expat who has been living and working in the Czech Republic's second-largest city, Brno, since 2004.

He shares his experiences in the city and tips for expats thinking about making the move in his interview with Expat Arrivals.
|Juris is a Latvian expat who's been stuck in the Czech Republic for about five years now, thanks to a crazy redhead Czech woman and a few mystical forces working against him. He moved his entire life to Czech, specifically Ostrava, in 2016, when he and his wife welcomed a little human into their lives. A few years later, in 2020, when everything fell apart due to Covid, a new daughter decided to make their lives a bit more complicated. Read about his experiences since moving to the Czech Republic.
