Prague - an expensive city

The Czech capital has shot up the list of the world's most expensive cities and is now ahead of Berlin and Brussels. According to Pražský deník, however, Prague still has a long way to go before it becomes a European luxury city: "Prague is pleased to be able to boast low unemployment and a high level of satisfaction of its citizens with their lives in the city. Less pleasing is its rise [up the league table] to become one of the world's thirty most expensive cities. Prague thus joins the ranks of the showcase luxury cities. But for a variety of reasons that is not what it is. Every citizen of Prague knows about the traffic problems, about the taxi drivers who cheat you, about the noise and pollution. Prague has a long way to go before it can call itself a showcase city."
