Every year, the Institute for Economics and Peace publishes the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of national peacefulness, ranking 163 countries according to their levels of peace. The institute looks at various social, political, and economic factors that are considered crucial to a country’s stability and security on both national and international levels.

This year, the Czech Republic ranked the tenth in the world and the sixth in Europe. The country’s strongest points were safe communities, low crime rates, difficulty of accessing weapons and the low impact of terrorism. The Czech Republic also boasts an efficient health care system – Czech hospitals are clean, the state-run insurance system is relatively inexpensive, and coverage is almost universal. Furthermore, the capital city of Prague is considered one of the safest and most beautiful cities in the world, too.

The Czech Republic is an ideal place for international students, as it offers excellent education in a multicultural and safe country with a thriving economy and many higher education institutions and English programs to choose from.
