About Říčany

Říčany is a beautiful town located in Prague-East region in the heart of the Czech Republic. It has the population of almost 17,500 including many families and young people who prefer living away from the Prague centre because of its calm and friendly atmosphere and lovely countryside, lakes and a historical town centre with enjoyable restaurants and cosy pubs. There are three primary schools and two secondary schools in Říčany, so there are always many students who need some extra lessons as well as a lot of children and adults who would just love to learn or improve their English.


Extra Mile brings a great opportunity to connect these students with you as our English Teacher. Join us and experience our friendly and innovating approach in teaching one-to-one or group lessons in a town just 20 mins by train from the centre of Prague.

If you just want to enjoy your free time after teaching, there are many possibilities in Říčany, from visiting the ruins of an early gothic Castle, walking around the main square to see its dominant The Church of St. Peter and Paul to simply relaxing with a chilled beer or a lovely coffee in some of the restaurants by the beautiful local lakes. If you like food (as we do) and beer (as we do) there are farmers markets every Saturday at the main square and Street food and beer festivals twice a year.



The town doesn’t lack in sporting activities either, Říčany is a town of Rugby. There is also a brand-new ice-hockey arena, several football clubs and playgrounds, cinema, swimming pool and many cycling and hiking routes. If you are a creative spirit, there are many ways to express yourself. We have a colourful musical scene with many rock, jazz and folk bands as well as festivals, there are dancing schools and courses, art exhibitions, you name it. Speaking of dancing the night life is quite lively, you can choose from nightclubs, bars and even ballroom events!

Also, every month, our agency organises special English afternoon parties with our students and teachers, so you will have a chance to meet new friends or just spend some nice time with nice people while speaking your mother tongue and staying in touch with our community.
