With housing prices in Prague launching into the stratosphere in the last few years, a lot of people have been moving out of the city and into the countryside or looking for new cities in Prague where they can live a similar existence without the obscene costs and, in searching for that new city, many have found Brno as a great alternative to Prague.
Well our friends at http://foreigners.cz are offering a Facebook livestream tour of a fancy property in Brno this Thursday, April 23rd that may be appealing if you’re one of those people looking to make the leap from Prague. In this live-streamed tour, you’ll get to see every nook and cranny of Domeq, an exceptional accommodation for modern professionals and students in Brno, and the team from Foreigners and Domeq will share with you how the community has been affected by the current state of emergency.
If you aren’t familiar with Foreigners (the business, not, you know, in general) or Domeq, here’s a bit of info on each:
Foreigners is an expat resource company offering a variety of services amounting to, essentially, a one-stop shop for all of your needs when it comes to making the Czech Republic your home. If you’ve been here for any amount of time you’ve probably realized it is easier to find English speakers at the local McDonald’s than it is to find them at many of the offices you have to interact with in order to start your life here. That’s where Foreigners comes in. With services from help with immigration issues, to healthcare, finding places to live, or even travel, Foreigners is a resource that ought to be in your bookmarks. They can literally help you get set up here in just about any way you’d like to be.
Domeq, which is operated by Foreigners.cz, is a cutting-edge building with 159 serviced apartments that are able to be rented for as little as on month (or longer if needed). Tenants are able to enjoy the international community in the downstairs chill-out zone – while maintaining social distancing standards, of course. They can play pool, Playstation or even watch a movie together.
There is even a quiet room available for when you want some time to concentrate and a fitness room where you can let out some of that pent up energy. Domeq is more than just an accommodation… it’s a lifestyle.
All of the rooms in Domeq feature custom made furniture that allows for plenty of storage space and offer a comfortable work/study environment and nearly all of the rooms have two beds, one of which can be turned into a sofa. A private bathroom and the infamous Czech “kitchen corner” can also be found in every apartment.
Crisp and neat interiors are designed with an accent on purity of space and combined with contemporary industrial elements. A number of apartments even include balconies!
Currently, there are about 200 people living in Domeq – mostly expats from countries from all around the world – and right now, you can reserve a spot in the building with no commission through the end of April.
The livestream will give you a unique tour of the building as well as address things like: How the coronavirus pandemic has changed life for current residents, whether tenants have stayed or chosen to head home, and for those who’ve stayed, how they’re handling the situation.
Domeq Operations Coordinator Veronika Svobodová will host the tour and you’ll get to see everything from the entry and reception area, to the fitness room, laundry room and the terraces on both the 6th and 12 floors, the latter of which features a breathtaking view of Brno.
