Counselling, Information and Support for Foreigners
Prague 14 and Social Networks
Most news on life in the city district published on the main portals is written in Czech. Prague 14 has therefore decided to run their own social network profiles to be able to share relevant news and invitations to interesting events in Russian (VKontakte), English, and Vietnamese (Facebook).

Intercultural and Community Work in Practice
The Prague 14 City District offers free services of intercultural experts who provide assistance to migrants in various areas. Contact our intercultural expert in the following situations:
- You have just arrived and need to know basic information on housing, finding a doctor, school, job, etc.
- You need legal or social counselling.
- You are looking for free Czech courses.
- You need an interpreter because your level of Czech does not allow you to communicate freely yet.
The intercultural expert also provides information on supporting programmes for migrants organised by the Prague 14 City District and programmes and events of KC Plechárna, KC Kardašovská, KC H55, and KD Kyje cultural centres. You can take an active part in all these events for free or for a minimum fee.
On top of that, we will provide you with information on how to implement community events or your own ideas in Prague 14.
Should you have any questions, please contact:
Support for Pupils with a Different Mother Tongue
Within the agenda of the integration of foreigners, great emphasis is placed on providing support to migrants’ children in learning Czech. The Prague 14 City District implements a number of programmes aimed at the effective inclusion of children into the Czech milieu.
Teachers and other employees of kindergartens and primary schools provide assistance to every child. Thanks to their rich experience with the integration of foreigners into the Czech milieu, children come to understand the school curriculum and start to communicate with their classmates very quickly. If you want your children to attend a school with an integration programme, contact one of the following:
- Prague 9, Lehovec, Chvaletická 918 Primary School
- Prague 9, Černý Most, Vybíralova 964 Primary School
- Hloubětínská 700, Lehovec Primary School
- Bratří Venclíků Primary School, Černý Most, Bří. Venclíků 1140
- Generála Janouška Primary School, Černý Most, Gen. Janouška 1006
- Korálek Kindergarten, Bobkova 766
- Obláček Kindergarten, Šebelova 874
- Vybíralova 968 Kindergarten
- Paculova 1115 Kindergarten
- Sluníčko Kindergarten, Černý Most, Gen. Janouška 1005
Participation in all Czech courses is free.
Children’s Corner and Reading Fairy Tales Together at the Local Černý Mošt Festival
The Prague 14 City District invites the public to take part in the preparation of the Černý Mošt (Black Juice) festival! The festival usually offers a varied programme, live music, local treats, sports games, and an opportunity to learn new skills at various workshops.
The main aim of this event is to allow friends and neighbours to meet up and spend a nice day together!
Participation is free of charge.
The integration of adult migrants is just as important as integration of children and that is why the Prague 14 City District has been committed to the development of this area for several years.
Adults can sign up for courses where they can start learning Czech. They also have an opportunity to take part in informal events where they can meet other people and become acquainted with Czech culture.
Apart from that, we organise socio-cultural courses which foster migrants’ integration into the local milieu and understanding of the rights and obligations of citizens.

Community Events Fostering Integration
Since 2019, we have been in contact with the representatives of foreigners’ associations. We provide guidance and community events facilitation during the course of the whole year.
In 2020, the Prague 14 City District holds a project competition Sousedé pro sousedy (Neighbours for neighbours) as a part of their support for foreigners’ community events.
If you have an event of this kind on your mind, don’t hesitate to apply. You can get a contribution of CZK 5.000 for the organisation!
Examples of projects:
- Last year, Alexander Reznic held a photo exhibition Praha očima cizinců (Prague through foreigners’ eyes) which showed the author’s way of integration through his work.
- Another event was a handmade foam flowers workshop – an opportunity for neighbours to meet up and become acquainted with Ukrainian traditions.
We will be happy to support your ideas! The form of the event is up to you: it may be a lecture with a discussion, small concert, creative workshop, cooking together, an event for parents and children… We welcome any idea for an event, the main aim of which will be giving people an opportunity to meet their neighbours and to enrich the neighbourhood community.
You can consult your ideas with Ekaterina Kokkalou, coordinator of the project Supporting Integration of Foreigners in the Prague 14 City District.
We’re awaiting your proposals with open arms
and we wish you good luck!
Community Events at Schools
In 2019, our kindergartens and schools became involved in the implementation of community events fostering integration. In the course of the year, there were creative workshops, a sports day, and an intercultural food festival.
The dates of future events and their focus will be specified in 2020.
