Overview

Culture Smart! guides offer a more meaningful experience abroad by informing foreign visitors to the values, attitudes, customs, and traditions of the country they are visiting; they also give readers the practical tools to take part in their new environment, to communicate effectively, form relationships, and avoid faux pas  

Many tourists visit the Czech Republic knowing no more about it than that the beer is cheap and the women beautiful. That lack of knowledge has led to frustration among Czechs, most of whom are very well-informed about the world around them. Culture Smart! Czech Republic informs you about the traditions, values, and attitudes of a remarkable people. It describes Czech life at home and in the workplace and offers practical advice on what to expect and how to navigate different social situations. The real rewards will come to the visitor who goes beyond the reserve to explore the complex corners of the Czech soul.
