The population of Prague has increased every year but one for the last 16 years, with growth of around 14,000 people recorded in 2017, according to official figures cited by the Czech News Agency. The rise last year was mainly due to new arrivals (almost 11,000), with around half being from abroad.
Natural growth is also a factor, with the capital’s birth rate having constantly exceeded the mortality rate since 2006.
