CZEXPATS Interviews

These days, around 100,000 people of Czech citizenship or origin lives in the United Kingdom. Among them, we can find many important personalities, but also individuals with unique personal stories. We decided to introduce you the most interesting of them in the Embassy‘s new long-term project called “CZEXPATS Interviews”.

Within the framework of the project, we want to use interviews to introduce you inspiring Czech compatriots - athletes, artists, doctors, businessmen, teachers and others who live in the United Kingdom and were able to find way to succeed in their profession or significantly contributed to developing their community. Our goal is not only to point out inspiring stories for other Czech compatriots in Britain and at home in the Czech Republic, but also to show the British how important Czech citizens are for developing their society.

As we want to involve wider expatriate community and the public into the project as well, please feel free to send us your suggestions for other interesting Czech personalities living in the United Kingdom who you thing would deserve to become part of CZEXPATS Interviews at our e-mail press.london@embassy.mzv.cz.
